After a few conversations back-and-forth between goalie Ondrej Pavelec, his agent Allan Walsh, and Thrashers GM Don Waddell things seem to be smoothed out.

The explanation that brought the sides together - "For (Pavelec) to be the backup goalie right now to Kari Lehtonen, doesn't make any sense," Waddell said. "I told Ondrej and Allan the same thing. We don't go three years without injuries and up and downs."

Basically if Lehtonen is injured this season Pavelec will be given the #1 spot and Johan Hedberg continuing as backup either way.
