According to Tim Leone this afternoon, Simeon Varlamov should return to active duty and be in net for the Bears on Saturday @ T.O.  Yet another reason to listen to the broadcast of that afternoon match (4pm).

And, to Leone, Bears head coach Bob Woods had this to say about Brian Pothier following practice at Hersheypark Arena today:

“He’s a very composed and heady guy.  He has experience. He’s been around a long time. He’ll settle things down back there. He’s been out for a while, but he’s been practicing. He looked good in practice. I think he’ll be fine.”

Very interesting.
