Ryan Lambert wrote about the Pavelec snub just today on Puck Daddy. To him, that Pavelec has been listed as the third string goalie of the opening contest is a sign that the decisions makers on the Czech team are more willing to face reality than the Winnipeg Jets about the ability level of the leaky netminder.
Elliotte Friedman had a different take, and one that Pav supporters and bright-side Jets fans will no doubt cite often. It's just game one of the round robin. No one knows who the real starter will be when things get more competitive.
Lambert cites Pavelec's NHL struggles. Friedman cites Pavelec's bronze medal performance at the 2011 World Championships. But what about his lockout appearance with Bili Tygri HC of Liberec?

Can it really be 4 years since the Olympics in Vancouver already? Simple math would suggest that is the case but we have a sneaking suspicion we may have fallen through some sort of worm hole or rip in the space time continuum. It seriously can't be 4 years can it? Hmm.

On this week's episode, the guys discuss the looming decisions for the Jets before the trade deadline, whether or not signing Paul Maurice over the break is Fair or Foul, and make our Sochi 2014 predictions. All that, plus more evidence of the #HumanFactor, more misspelt names and a few coughing fits.

The Jets put together a terrific effort against the Blues on Saturday afternoon, but just weren’t able to pull out a win heading into the Olympic break. We saw the Maurice effect once again in regards to the Jets play in the neutral zone, which definitely had a contributing factor in the Jets game.

The Jets put together a solid, near complete effort against the Blues on Saturday afternoon. If not for penalty trouble, it may have just ended up being a dominant game in many forms, with the Blues being bailed out by some lucky bounces.
