you even are even able to extend him that is?
I get that San Jose needs cap help; guess what, that comes at a cost as well. No way would the Jets be adding anything under this scenario.
You're not sure why they would? Pavelski is better on both sides of the puck. Little is good, don't get me wrong and he may get better (although at 25 that is no guarantee) but Pavelski is better. He's versatile enough to play center and wing and do it with pretty much anyone you want. Play the point on the power play and kill penalties among the many other things he does.
And you can cut out the 'needs cap help'. That is completely and utterly false. And remember, this is just starting point stuff. It doesn't mean that things can't be changed around like Sharks adding or something else depending on the deal.
