Who should start against the Sens? Bonus question: How do we handle Pavelec's starts?

But if you watch most games like i do. You would see that he is definitely more important to this team then his numbers show. Look at last year for example, he was arguably our best player, kept us in a lot of games even tho our team played poorly. we would of been a bottom 5 team the last 2 years without him. Right now i can agree that he isn't stealing any games for us, but he usually makes the 1st save(after that its the Defense that needs to help him out and clear those rebounds). So i am putting most(not all, there been 1 or 2 bad pave games) on team Defense and PK. Once those improves i guarantee he will have his number around .910-.915
