Semyon Varlamov's Statement Says Brief, Kind Things About Washington Capitals

Via Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider, the North American agent (emphasis mine) for ex-Capitals goalie Semyon Varlamov has issued a statement from the netminder:

"I want to take this opportunity to say - Thank you to the Washington Capitals organization, the coaching, training and medical staff and the wonderful Caps' fans for their support throughout my career and wish the organization nothing but the best."

As was pointed out in this space yesterday, the differentiation needs to be made between Varlamov's North American agent and Russian agent. His Russian agent would have you believe every team in the KHL is outbidding each other for his client's services. His North American agent is buying him Denver guidebooks and helping him pack for his flight to Colorado, the NHL city Semyon was traded to on Friday for a 2012 first-round pick and an additional second-round pick after the two sides could not reach agreement on a new contract.
