You may be wrong with that. He was on the NT radar for quite some time now. It's just Varlamov clearly made a statement for himself with the last WC. Anyway Bobrovsky already was called up to the NT 2010 for the first time even before his NHL career and he was called up by the current coaching staff too along with Khudobin btw. The guys are clearly being monitored by the NT staff and if Bob continues to thrive he's obviously to battle with Varly for the no.1 spot.

Btw, sorry CBJ fans, but I hope Columbus doesn't make the playoffs this year.(Could be even better for them in the future. They'll have a bunch of high picks in the upcoming draft. And in a couple of years contending isn't out of question with the group they have now). The russian players on CBJ coming to the WC would be exactly the ones need that evaluation and meet-and-greet with Bill's coaching system. Also Bobrovsky would probably get the call. All very important as Billyaletdinov is known for going only with players he had a chance to evaluate properly and personally.
