Well fellas, I ended up parking Varlamov's butt on my bench tonight...and whaddya know he goes and gives up 3 goals with a subpar save percentage (even though I thought he played decently overall).
You guys brought up some fantastic points, thank you all! I'm not gonna lie though, I put him on the bench after reading some of your responses, and then started playing Halo thinking I'd keep thinking about it. Time passed by quickly and I looked at the clock and realized it was already 10:15 EST and it was too late to change even if I wanted to.
Phew. Knowing me I would have put him in.
