He will get 10 games of playtime.

I would like to have a goalie who could play 25 or more games during the season.
Henrik is getting old and will need more rest.

I haven't seen enough of him to judge

Allaire IS the man, though.... Chad Johnson and Cam Talbot don't see the success they see now without going through Allaire.

I think management was tired of hearing about goalie controversies, tho.... No disputing this year. Should be a none storyline.

Pavelec is fine. He can start if need be. He was overpaid in Winnipeg because they didn't have anyone else, and he underperformed because he's playing behind Winnipeg for god's sake. Then he has to deal with all the criticism of a large contract and a crappy team in front of him.

I'm not expecting Allaire to turn him into another Talbot/Raanta, more along the lines of a Martin Biron, a veteran guy who can hold down the fort when we need to but isn't going to turn a season around.

Fun stat - Pavelec is in the top 50 NHL all-time save percentage leaders. (He's 28th among active players)

Based on that alone he is in the exact position he should be - one of the worst starters in the league, or one of the better backups.

Blech...don't like Pavelec, but it's not like there were tons of better options.

I had this conversation a couple of years ago with someone at work just to prove how ridiculous goalie stats have gotten inflated with the equipment. Two years ago (3 years ago?)he was dead last (at the time) among starting goalies in save percentage, yet he was 40th all time. Personally I wouldn't have touched him.

I have to think Bennie had a lot of say in whom they signed as the backup. I will give him the benefit of the doubt. They could have had Niemi for less, and went with Pavelec instead. I have to think there is some thought behind that decision.
