Pavelec: 9-11, 3.52, .903

Just look at that. That's more than a goal a game against Pavelec. And having a 9-6-something record would be a lot better than the record we have now. Just look at the standings: everybody in the East except for Carolina has a reasonable chance of making the playoffs. We keep dropping games like we have been this month, we're in trouble.

Starting him once a week or so, to give Hedberg the occasional rest, is fine. Starting him every other game isn't.

2. There's a chance that the Thrashers are gonna have to go through the whole breed-a-goaltender process all over again. Hedberg isn't getting any younger--he's 36--,Pavelec we already know about, and Lehtonen is a crapshoot. Anybody up-and-coming in case of a long-term worst-case-scenario?
If u dont think u have a goalie in Ondrej Pavelec, good luck finding one...I watched this kid for 2 years in cape breton....hes 22 years old and has shown tremendous upside....goalies often take time to develop...this guy will be in the top 5 in the league in a couple years, just wait and see...
you guys have that finnish kid too, who might be worth something on the trade market...
the impending kovalchuk trade could be the best thing to happen to your franchise....
ask the quebec/colorado franchise how much you can get in return for a superstar.....
