Jenna, Don't worry. This is an opinion/fantasy posting. Not quite an article. Thanks for contributing though. It's nice to hear from an opposing fan when they have some value to add. It strikes me funny that the Russians have made a home in our country's capital. Thanks to President Reagan for demanding to "tear down that wall."
Caps fan here. You can't have him. You should really do your research. Our GM has already said that Varlamov will be re-signed, by us. Besides, there's a few things wrong with what you wrote. First of all, Varly has no interest in being a backup goaltender. You guys just signed Crawford to be your starter. And FYI, Varly SHOULDN'T be a backup goaltender. This kid is really, REALLY good. He's had some trouble with injuries, yeah. But he's healthy now and if he can maintain that with a new trainer, he will be our No. 1. Nobody here in Washington is counting our chickens with Michal Neuvirth. We know Varly is our future. Second of all, he will command more than a $1 million contract this time around. He's just finished up his entry level, and he'll be getting a raise. We can pay him to be our starter, are you willing to give him what he's worth to be your backup? Third of all, it wasn't long ago (before McPhee spoke out about re-signing him) that Varly said it was either Washington or the KHL for him. He doesn't want to be anywhere else but in DC. Russians are like that - he wants to stay with his Russian homies in Ovechkin and Semin, and soon to be Kuznetsov, Orlov, and Galiev. Hugely flawed article, sorry.
