Great goalie prospects are not usually worth as much as one would think, I'm guessing because they are more likely to end up as a bust, while a great forward or d prospect can still be useful on the 3rd/4th line or bottom pairing if they don't pan out as a top line player.
Varlomov played in the NHL and played well. Your boy has 0track record. PLus most agree Colorado overpaid and got fleeced.
