Interview with Varly's dad

7

@dchesnokov hinted a couple weeks ago that Caps goalie Semyon Varlamov would be arriving early for training.and confirmed that the former #40 was on the ice at Kettler on Monday. Pavel Lysenkov of Sovetsky Sport was able to interview Varly's father Alexander. (Original Russian link: http://www.sovsport.ru/gazeta/article-item/400823 Go read the largely comprehensible googletrans version for more details, but here are some interesting highlights: 1. The Capitals told him at the end of the season that he needed to plan for an early return to DC for training/conditioning; 2. Poppa Varlamov is keeping a weagle eye on the UFA goalie situation, particularly w/r/t Niemi and Turco;* 3. He also knows it's a contract year for young Semyon; 4. Mom came along to make sure her son is eating right; and 5. Varly is shopping for a new apartment in a quieter area that does not overlook the street. Apparently the constant slap slap slap of brown flip-flops emergency vehicles and crowds of drunk kids were getting to be a bit much. *One down, one to go with Turco to the Hawks!
