SKA after Ondrej Pavelec

"SKAís coach confirmed that they are interested in signing Jets Ondrej Pavelec." -Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter

"Elliotte Friedman suggested on the Hotstove that SKA St. Petersburg has made an offer to Jets goalie, Ondrej Pavelec. Pavelecís agent, Allan Walsh, would not comment. Pavelec made $1.3 million last year and will be looking for a nice raise. Signing Pavelec is a priority for the Jets."-Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun

Why would he leave Winnipeg when he's their starter ? And when St.Petersburg is pretty cold in the winter...

I don't see why they wouldn't, or why he'd leave a starters role behind for a worse league that's kinda shady...

It's not about weather. If we like it this way, i have to say, some people like colder climate :-)

As far as cold is concerned, St. Petersburg and Winnipeg aren't much different between each other. But who is better, Stepanek or Pavelec?

Maybe he feels he would be better of closer to home? Don't think he'll move myself.

Winnepeg is a lot colder then St.Petersburg.
Average low in Jan in Winnepeg is -23C or -9F
Average low in Jan in St.Petersburg is -8C or 18F


And not to offend our Canadian friends but I would say the quality of life in St.Petersburg is notably higher.

The quality of life is fantastic in manitoba! Regardless of the cold


And as for who's better? Really stepanek is haivng a hard time holding his starters job to ejov and lost it at the worlds, pavelec is an nhl starter and would have been handed the starting job for the czechs hands down

Stepanek is ok at best, pavelec is awesome

SKA may very well get Pavelec but it is going to cost quite a bit of money to get Pavelec signed...

But is one of Stepanek or Ezhov a pending free agent?

Family reasons ? I know he almost went KHL before.. But that's cause he wanted a starters job.. Which he now has...

@VladNYC... Way to state the obvious... Winterpeg definitely does not compare to St.Petersburg...

Question is what's more important to him ? Improving or stagnating ?
World class or Shady bush league stuff ?

Pavelec stays in the NHL. Winnipeg signed the guy 5 years @ $3.9M each.

Is SKA owned by the same people as Zenit in football?

If they are I wonder why they haven't signed more NHLers.

Does anyone know if SKA is still playing in the same arena near Zenits ground or that lovely (relatively)new 17000 seat arena in a different part of Petersburg that looks like an NHL building?


I'd live in Petersburg over Winnipeg every day of the week and I have forgotten most of the Russian I knew, people saying the quality of life in the Peg is better to a millionaire who speaks Russian are absolute ****ing morons.

.
Their budget was almost 100 000 000$ last season... They have signed these NHL guys in last few years: Afinogenov, Grebeshkov, Kalinin, Artyukhin, Prucha, Nabokov..
