"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
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
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.
