A perfect world has them competing directly- Kari gets the much-needed career motivation he needs to stay focused, Pavs gets valuable experience in the big league.
Maybe my memory is just completely shot, but I honestly have never thought of Kari Lehtonen being consistent, at all. Seems like he'd stop 15 good, quality chances, then have a brain fart and let in two really stoppable goals. Dunno, he just never came across as the kind of guy that you could trust in big-game situations, or really even from game to game.

What I'm saying is that Kari's "old self" I didn't think was anything spectacular.
