Both goalies have career .906 save percentages afterall.
Ultimately it is about winning games. I say go with the gyt that gives you the best chance to win. I don't know who that is, start whoever.
The bolded is interesting. If you look at Montoya's record for the~ 40 NHL games he played in 2010-12, prior to the concussion, his SvP was >.915. (For corroboration on the concussion effect, look at Reimer in TO, pre and post concussion, and now this year)
I know we have a lot invested in Pavs, but he has not proven to me that he is better than Montoya.
We'll never know unless we give them both substantial opportunity.
