    So, with the Varlamov news...I wonder if the call up of Milan to the Monsters was in any way related to it looking back.

    Question of the day, which of Aittokallio/Pickard get the call to backup Giggy on Friday?

    Millan was called up before all this happened, so it was unrelated.

    We don't know anything about how Avs will handle this. It's possible Avs decide the best way is to not let this change the plans and play Varlamov on Friday/Saturday. It's possible they want to give him a break this weekend to avoid the stress and recall a goalie from LEM.

    No, Millan was called up on Monday. The Varly incident happened on Tuesday.

    Nobody knows why Millan was called up. I read someone heard Aittokallio has a minor injury but I am not at all trying to present that as a fact.

    If Varly is unavailable for Friday does that mean someone can be called up as an emergency situation? I'd guess that Pickard would be next in line. The Monsters have a game on Friday as well that I guess Millan could start. I have no clue what they would do for a backup as Patterson has been playing for the Cutthroats and I have no idea what they are doing for their backup situation.

    Like it has already been said, the call up is unrelated.

    If Varly is released tomorrow morning like everyone is saying he should be, I hope he plays Friday. Just carry on with business and get his mind off it.

    The last thing he needs to do is just sit at home and think about it all day.

    As much as I'd like to see it, I can't see Varly being released and then playing right away. If someone were to be called up, it would most likely be Aittokallio. If Patterson get's called up too, then we'll know that one of Pickard/Aitto are injured. Unless Sgarbossa plans on being backup goaltender.

    There's always Holden. He's tried every other position.
