For anyone wondering about the mysterious circumstances surrounding the Varlamov deal this past summer, I got a chance to ask GM GM personally about our off-season acquisitions at the Acela Club VIP event this morning at Verizon. As It turns out, he shared in a rather jovial and unabashed mood, #1 and the Caps were in agreement on terms and "only $50,000 apart in salary when everything just stopped." Apparently after a few days they had his US agent look into why he hadn't responded to their offer, and he found out that "Varlamov's father had accepted money from the KHL club to help sway him" to sign there. Once it became apparent he was going to go to Russia or be claimed on waivers if they attempted to move him/were forced to match an offer sheet, it was just a matter of time before he got traded. Money quote of the day: "I'm hoping we win the Stanley Cup and Colorado does poorly, so we get both the 1st and 30th picks in the first round."

"One thing that happened for sure with the tough guys is their salaries have gone down because people don’t want to spend as much on them because they need the money for more talent. The next step is, do we really need it at all, or should we take a page from Detroit’s book and just throw as much talent at this other team as we can. If people want to screw around, then you beat them up on your power play if you have a good power play."
