Avalanche coach Patrick Roy expects Semyon Varlamov to be Russia's starting goaltender at the Olympics.
"He's probably going to be the No. 1 goalie for them in the Olympics, and he'll be ready for it, no doubt in my mind," Roy said. "If I was the Russian coach, I would use him, but I'm not. Right now, he's working very hard, he's very focused and I think he'll do a good job for them, depending on the decision of their coach." Varlamov, who has been playing the best hockey of his career this season, will start Thursday against Edmonton.
