Pavelec's agent explained their side. "When Ondrej signed two years ago Don Waddell gave Ondrej his word. He sat there at the table and gave Ondrej his personal word that Ondrej would never be held back. Last year he led Chicago to an American League championship. This year he played in the first exhibition game and then the third period on October 3 they threw him into the game cold in the third period. That is criminal mismanagement of a young goalie."
I'm sure there will be more to follow. Kari Lehtonen is the #1 in Atlanta with Johan 'moose' Hedberg as backup.
