Neuvirth: Holtby is 'weakest competion' yet
Bit of confusing remarks here. Neuvy sounds confident and is comparing Holtby to guys like Vokoun and Varlamov, but the comments may not have been necessary or lost in translation a bit. I guess he's just saying that this is the easiest competition for the starting job since he's been in DC.
On the starting job
I’m starting the season sure that I want to play forty/fifty games and I am really sure that I have the weakest competition (Braden Holtby) I’ve ever had. I will try to be number one goalie this season. Finally!
About Holtby vs. Vokoun/Varlamov
In comparison to those two, he played nothing in the NHL and that’s why I take him as the weakest of them three. I’m definitely not saying that he is bad, not at all. I actually like the way he plays. But he is the worst of them three, that’s all.
So what to make of this? Was there a better way of saying it or is being honest the best way to go about it?
