he and chara are the best in their positions on wc. were it not for them i dont think slovakia would be playing in finals. regardind the post above from what i have seen varlamovs norm is a few soft goals per game so i dont understand how he could be considered best
Well, i think the Slovaks had maybe the best team defense and their work in front of their own goal was just so solid that Laco looked better than he actually is. But he played a great tournament too so nothing to take away from him.
I think Varmalov is another serious canditate but obviously he was playing for a very different team.
