    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?

    League stats in Sig.

    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.

    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.
