This guy has been playing goal for the New York Islanders and Phoenix (when they sucked). To say he isn't going to "push" Pavelec is to either give Pavelec way too much invincibility power (the mighty cannot fall), or, to simply not look at where Al Montoya has been a.k.a. World Junior Gold Medalist, 1st round draft pick, and increasingly getting more playing time in the N.H.L...this is a great moment for the Jets!!! I think we have two absolute future gems between the pipes...I do think Pavelec will be Pavelec next year (be outstanding and play the majority of games), but I do think we have a far more trustworthy backup in Montoya to play closer to 25 games than we did in Mason. Feels good to be talking Jets hockey again.
