    Question Varlamov a solid keeper (top5?)

    A full season under the best goalie coaching duo (Allaire and Roy's) got him the most wins. You guys think he'll remain top tier goalie for a few years?

    I am an owner too and I am probably more of a 'hope for the best but plan for the worst' kind of manager. He has had problems with consistency and injury through most of his career. I find it hard to imagine that this one great season is the new normal. If I get an offer for another more established tier 1 goalie I would think about it.

    I think Varly will be a top 5-10 NHL goalie in points-leagues with Wins/SO.
    He'll also be 10th-15th, I think, in multi-cat when factoring in GAA/SV%.
    Colorado is going to be awesome for many years.

    If your league counts saves, varly had 1850+ while Hank had 1666 and Tuukka 1526. Roy definitely wants to run and gun.

    This..............not sure if you can expect what happened this season for next year, but top 10 is fair.

    Barring injury - I don't see why not. The team in front of him is going to get better per force so I like his chances to repeat the season he had. Certainly in the last half of the season he seemed to settle out regarding consistency - tendency to give up an early goal or two but then hunker down and put up the fence. I would be happy enough in a 12 team league to make him my goalie keeper. I would rate him to be somewhere around 5 or 6 of the guys I/ would pick freely.
