He doesn't play as well when there's a legitimate threat to his position as starter, which means he doesn't play as much, which means he becomes more susceptible to injury. Bernier signing pretty much guarantees Varlamov will play 60+ games if healthy which is only a good thing.

I know Varlamov is like that. But you do realize it's Bernier who I'm talking about?

Well, now I do.

He also played more for Anaheim last year than I realised. He still stinks.

As a starter, yeah pretty much but he should be a good backup.

So am I getting this right? Varlamov AND Bernier stink?

!

Varlamov = good, considerably better than everyone on this board seems to think and demonstrably better when playing a lot and an undisputed starter

Bernier = doesn't know who Nelson Mandela is and is on his third team in two years

I don't expect anything remarkable from Bernier and I don't expect him to be here beyond the 17/18 season.

Yeah, I don't expect him to be here after next year either. That however is not a comment on how I expect him to fare.
