ESPN published their top-25 goaltenders in the NHL today with some notable tenders left off the list. While all of M.A. Fluery, Thomas Vokoun, and Semyon "I cost a 1st and 2nd round pick" Varlamov could be considered uncomfortable absences for their teams, it was the slight to Ondrej Pavelec that sent the Winnipeg Sun's Paul Friesen to talk to coach Claude Noel
