    As an avid bobblehead collector this video made me cringe… However it was necessary

    Basically what everyone wants to say in one word or less.

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    Not even a Varly fan in any sense.

    This is the same Varlamov as was in Washington. He’s doing well now because Colorado isn’t allowing rebound opportunities, something that both Washington and Colorado have failed at in the past. He still gives us MASSIVE rebounds into the slot, but their defensive scheme revolves around protecting the middle of the ice, tying up sticks, and contesting shots. It’s not just Varlamov looking good right now, Giggy looks great as well.

  • Pat

    Now now…we have no clue what happened. Lets wait until the details come out.

  • leaveittobeagle

    Well, at least this puts to rest the question of who won that trade.

  • Matt

    I don’t think you know what’s going on……

  • RedRockingElla

    You obviously haven’t heard the news

  • JenniferH

    Uhm, yeah.

  • Yo8

    I can’t process this… I just can’t! I feel sad because he has always been a favorite for me and I was glad he was doing ok with his new team, but at the same time I feel angry and I want to slap the living shit out him.

  • BPThomas

    Thank you. 3rd degree assaults, correct me if I’m wrong, can be issued without bodily harm done. The kidnapping may be a result of him taking a child, even if it was to a relatives if said kid was reported missing while in his care. Please everyone keep in mind there is always two sides to a story, and reserve judgment for later. Not sure that it matters, but I’m not a Varly fan either.

  • Freedoooom

    LOL. He turned himself in, does he not know this is going on his Wikipedia page?

  • Shehryar Shaukat

    reserve your judgement until you get both sides of the story…it’s quite possible he’s innocent.

  • Yes. Also, the sky is blue and water is wet. #Facts

  • Toronto Caps Fan

    Here is another cliche ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’.

  • Yo8

    This is his mugshot? Man, he looks hot just like Fedorov’s mugshot hahahahaha… T-T___________________________________ _ _ _

  • Derek Eklund

    Gonna reserve my comments until we have more details. Just hope this seems more serious than it is and that all parties are ok in the end.

  • Priscilla

    Weirdest thing. Was having a conversation with my fiancé just before this news broke about russian male/female relationship dynamics. And Neither of us is russian.

  • kemiisto

    The only detail you need is that the alleged victim is from the same city as Bryz. Is it an odd coincidence or simply a battle for the Olympics spot?

    P.S. Yea, I know. Not the best time for jokes. Anyway…

  • kemiisto

    In Soviet Russia you are guilty until proven innocent, but luckily he is in US.

    P.S. Unluckily it is just 100 days before Olympics.

  • kemiisto

    Russian medias quote Varly’s farther that everything will be alright.

    “The situation is far easier then medias say about it. He [Varly] doesn’t have any serious problems.”

  • kemiisto

    Rossiyskaya Gazeta claims that according to eyewitnesses both Varly and his girlfriend were drunk and Varly pushed her when she refused to go with him to watch a movie.

  • ilya

    i knew that it was a story something like this and he didnt really beat someone up or take a child away because our friend had a crazy girlfriend who was screaming and hitting our friend and clawing at his face but he was blocking her hits, then pushed her off and ran into his car but while he was in the car starting his engine and started to drive, she ran in and wouldn’t get out of his car while it was moving. the law a lot of the time sympathizes with a woman in a “he beat me and forcibly took me in his car” story so he was charged with assault and attempted kidnapping even though she was the one being crazy hitting him and jumped into his moving car refusing to get off and get out. true story. sometimes things sound worse than it really is.

    -also, that is weird he was really drunk and did this bc i had hear a long time ago that varly doesnt drink a lot of alcohol during hockey season..

  • kemiisto

    The keywords are “according to eyewitnesses”. 🙂

  • JenniferH

    I was unable to watch this until I got home from work. Ian and Peter… you rock.

  • kemiisto

    OK. Here we go! The Cold War II is coming!

    The State Duma doesn’t rule out the possibility that the situation with Varlamov is a sabotage.

    (I know, innocent until proven guilty, but I coudn’t resist)

  • caps fan

    Innocent until proven quilty.

  • Jon Bennett

    I knew I should have hit on Dasha … We were starting to have a nice conversation

  • GetchaGrubbOn

    I think that the real takeaway here is that I WANT YOUR DOG!

  • Rob

    Is your dog OK? Is that it wheezing or does your phone vibrate extremely loud?

  • Pat Magee

    I still don’t believe this………. I reserve judgement until there are more details. Varly nice guy!(((((

  • Poor baby has an enlarged soft palate in addition to other bulldog breathing problems. She’s pretty much wheezing all the time.

  • Shmoo

    Kidnapping charge is likely related to holding someone in a location against their will. Can be charged for blocking a door, for example.

  • Patricia Dunlap Maryniak I just read this article. I am also reserving judgement. I’ll leave that to a judge, jury or God.
