Actually before Varlmalov was traded he played 2 season in the NHL, playing a grand total of 53 games(0 in the playoffs). It was a basic case the writing was on the wall and Holtby became the Capitals chosen one and Varlmalov was ready to go to the KHL before that deal was made. The fact the Capitals got so much for him is baffling but that is another discussion.
On the flip side Bernier has played 62 games so far in the NHL and 30 minutes in the playoffs.
