Per Darren Dreger, the Rangers are targeting Ondrej Pavelec to fill their backup goaltending void. The former Jet has a pretty bad rep, but has pretty solid numbers at even strength. That leads us to believe there were special teams issues in Winnipeg. That said, the Rangers also had PK issues, and it’s not like the Rangers have a strong blue line.

This is a classic eye test vs. numbers debate with Pavelec. Justin noted solid talent, but inconsistent technique/conditioning. Bad conditioning can be fixed, and Benoit Allaire can fix anyone’s technique. Pavelec will likely need to start 20 games for the Blueshirts, so let’s hope he just needs a change of scenery and some time with a solid goalie coach.
