Good for him, imagine if the caps had Carey Price. I don't get you right now.

Carey is as good as Varlamov this year as bad as he is, but Varlamov has a way better win% considering he is on the toppest team in the league. And Halak owns the ***** out of Varlamov, so you have no argument.

I'm also detecting anti Care Price bias here, since he's older by what, one year? Absolute Fail at suggesting Varlamov would ever be better than him. 1 year older but 100+ NHL games ahead. Utter. Fail.

That's what I thought. Definitely the best goalie on an entry level contract in the league. In any event, it would take some maneuvering to get rid of Theodore (I highly doubt the Canadiens would bring him back, lol), and I don't know why they'd target target Halak to replace him. Sure, he is one of the best goalies in the league this year, but there are guys with more (and better) playoff experience out there. They have a lot of cap room, but wouldn't even be looking for a long term investment anyways (also have Neuvirth).

How the hell does Carey work his way into every damn conversation in this place?

The Caps will stick with Varlamov and hope that Neuvirth will develop quickly so they can drop Theodore eventually. They have no need for another goalie.

Do you know anything about Varlamov? The guy has been on the radar ever since he was 18 and was brought up to the Lokomotiv big club for the playoffs (same year he also had a sensational WJC, posting a 1.5 GAA and 2 shutouts in 6 games). The very next year he put up really strong numbers in the regular season on Lokomotiv and then posted 5 shutouts in 16 playoff games with them. Hence his selection in the 1st round of 2006. If the Habs hadn't picked Price the year before, they almost certainly would have picked Varlamov in 2006 instead of Fischer.

To flat out refuse to acknowledge that Varlamov COULD be better than Price is being just as biased as you're accusing Natey of.

I'd want Semin or Greene. They won't be able to resign Semin since he took a 1 yr paycut to stick with the team next yr.

Varlamov also has only played one NHL game since the Fall....gave up 6 goals against Ottawa. If his groin doesn't hold up, goaltending could be the only thing that holds the Washington Capitals back from a serious run at the Cup.

Gretzky used to do that in LA.

Don't underestimate how much influence the iconic superstars have. They're often a lot closer to ownership than the coach or GM are.

What is it with you and having to throw you a bone every once in a while

You're not even arguing anything, except for saying that if we hadn't picked Price we would have taken Varlamov the year after, which is wild enough to speculate. You go on a rant about how he deserved his draft selection, but uh, Price was #5 overall in the crosby draft and as much as you are pimping Varlamov Carey has acomplished more imo before he reached the NHL. Shattered dreams bro.

From www.rotoworld.com....

Quote:
Coach Bruce Boudreau was not happy with Semyon Varlamov's performance in his first game back from knee and groin injuries.
Varlamov stopped just 22 of 28 shots in a 6-5 loss to the Ottawa Senators. "It was an ugly display," a furious Boudreau said. "I thought our defense was horrible and our goaltending was horrible. You're not going to win when you give up six goals and maybe five of them are bad ones and our 'D' can't make a play. It's awful." Varlamov did play between the pipes a bit in an AHL conditioning stint before returning, but he's still probably rusty. He has a 2.44 GAA and .916 save percentage in 17 games this season.

I heard that Halak called Gauthier and asked if he can make a deal to get this guy called Ovetchkin, Halak thinks this guy can play on the forth line as a hitter.

This was the worst insert Carey debate here.
All he's saying is that Varlamov is good, has great numbers, and hey look! he's really young! To make you realize how young he is, he's even younger than our young stud goalie who is considered young.

I didn't start the "Carey debate" as you put it I don't know why you're trying to change what he said by using softer words but it it still means the same.

Even if true, Gretzky didn't play in a salary cap era.

Halak for Semin = too much money, high costing UFA in 1 year

Halak for Green = too much money, won't happen

Halak and Plekanec for Backstrom = never gonna happen

Either way, Habs aren't trading Halak to the East unless it is a hell of a deal.
