Glad to see him re-signed, but it's too much money for what he's done, IMO. I get paying for potential, but still think Jets overpaid here.
I think that the fact that there were not many goalies out there to replace him, and we don't have an NHL ready guy in the AHL nor a quality signed backup worked in Pavelec's favour. It's a very nice deal I think, the 5 years is a bit risky but it could work out well, especially with an improved D in front of him.
Wow did Pavs get lucky. He has potential but has proven nothing. He signed for 2.1 Million more than Quick and Howard's 2nd contract?
It's a lot to pay this guy.. I just really really hope he continues to work his ass off to get better. He seems like a great guy and should be good in the community.
At least we know who our Goalie is!
A bit unfair here aren't we? Pavelec has been pretty inconsistent thus far in his career, but I don't think there's that many people who'll deny that he's a legitimate starting goaltender at the moment with the potential to be a lot more then that.
