An there is also more factors to negotiations. If Varly will pwn Boston and Philly he can ask for some nice bonus probably. No point to run agent's mouth.

The Cup... that can add to the contract also =))))

i am not seeing it. varly's qualifying offer will be at $800k or something. he is very likely to be making around $1.5m. the same cap hit that neuvirth has already committed to. at this point only varly taking over and carrying the team to a cup final would be enough to make any significant dent in that salary structure.

if the caps are letting someone go over a pay raise of under a million, it wont be anyone major. chimera, sloan.

Sorry, TB can't have any of them.

Or, you hold on to his rights, refuse to let him force a trade, and let him leave for the KHL while maintaining his NHL rights.

Tampa Bay will be able to find a goalie easily enough. It's not that difficult in today's saturated goaltender market.

Varlamov is in an urgent need of change. He had two relatively bad years with the Caps. Either he has to go to another club or KHL, in this situation it would be for his own best.

It wasn't that he didn't play a ton....it was that he was never healthy enough to play any more. You must KNOW the difference!!!!

My mind is blown.

Staal and Orpik would barely, if at all, and that is a big "if," be worth one of Semin and Green alone.

If Varlamov does not get to play (for any reason(s)) in the playoffs, or if he does, and plays poorly or gets injured; he will not be offered the money he wants and he will go to the KHL if they pay him what he wants or he will take a pay cut and thereby make a compromise to take a little less money than KHL but stay in the NHL with a different team.

I think however, he should get a solid athletic trainer and work on his weak spots and play safer since obviously athleticism comes at a price if the body isn't strong enough to handle playing at 100% all the time (as he should since he's the last line of defense after all by position).

I think the value of Semin can only be realized when he is lost to another team. Just like with everything else, you don't know how good you have it until you lose it.

Your agent said that you were considering the KHL as a possibility.

"Only my agent said that, but that is purely on the level of a rumor."

But the words of the agent were very specific. It turns out you are nonetheless thinking about all possible variants.

"First and foremost I will consider a proposal from Washington. I really want to stay on the team. I'm already settled in here. My dream from childhood was to play in the NHL, and I want to continue that if at all possible."

Even if you are only offered ten percent?

"What does that mean?"

That is the minimum salary increase for a restricted free agent.

"If they give me ten percent, then we'll work with those numbers. There's nothing you can do about it."

I bet he's packed his bags already, not getting game 1 is the turning factor in this in my opinion. I am one of Varly's biggest fans but he lost his position as #1 this season.

I've been thinking of making a trade proposal thread recently involving one of Varlamov, Holtby to Avs if they don't get a star in free agency. Who is more tradable/What would caps need in return?.

not a big loss for you guys IMO. Neuvirth is a decent #1, probably as good as Varlamov. And Holtby is going to have a VERY good NHL career too. Too bad it'll keep you from a trading assets if he goes to the KHL, but I think you're settled in goals with Neuvirt and Holtby.

I doubt any of the three get traded this off-season. If, and I mean if, one does, Colorado would be the type of destination that GMGM would look at.

Ideally, Washington would probably want somebody on an ELC or cheap contract. Exactly what needs Washington has is going to come down to what happens with Laich, Hannan, Arnott, Gordon, and Bradley this off-season (though the option to fill from within exists for most situations). I could see them having some interest in guys like Galiardi and Winnik (if Bradley/Gordon leaves), but would want some quality draft picks in addition to either of those guys.

The bottom line is that if a goalie is traded, it's going to be because there's a quality offer for that goalie. It's not going to be because they "need" to trade one yet. You're not going to get a steal of a trade out of McPhee in any scenario, especially this one.

This playoffs is far from over. His services may yet be needed. If he is expecting to be named the #1 guy then he's in for a disappointment. The best GMGM/BB will give him is the chance to battle for that spot. He's not going to get significantly more than Neuvy short of having a great playoffs.
