definitively Varlamov, I fully trust our scouting staff of taking struggling/ injury plaiged players and turning them into something very useful (i.e. Fleischmann, Mueller, Porter(at some times anyway), etc)

Varlamov hands down.

Potential franchise goaltender.

Definitely Varlamov, but do not underestimate the impact Hejda will have.

Varly. Hejda will also be a great addition.

I think if it's NOT Varly, we're in a bit of trouble. But I think Varly will be good for us next season. I really believe so.

Yeah if varly can keep his save percentage north of .900 it'll be him. I really REALLY hope he can do it or were in for a long season. After varly, lando then hejda.

Giguere. He finally got hernia surgery and will re-establish himself as a top 10 goalie.

Varly and Giggy. Having capable goaltenders will do wonders for the team.

Considering we didn't have any goalies before signing Varly and Giggy, I'm guessing they're going to make the biggest impact

Varlamov hands down. And that could go either way. He could be the consistent goaltender we have desperately needed or he could be injured and the trade becomes the disaster everyone says it already is.

Hejda, Varlamov will probably break apart and Giguere will do a so-so job in net, but maybe the defense is improved enough that it doesn't lead to a team-wide collapse.

For better or worse Varlamov. He plays well this team will do well. He plays bad this team will finish in the basement. Everything hinges on him.

Varlamov and Mueller are going to have the biggest impacts.


..whether they are positive or negative.
