Pavs Refusing to Go Down?

Pavs was sent down to Chicago Saturday AM - we have Moose and Kari - everyone expected this, especially after losing the game Friday night for us by allowing 4 goals in the 3rd period. On the flipside, he's the only goalie who got a win this pre-season (Moose would have gotten one Friday, but...). Pavelec would benefit from another year in the minors, but according to Craig Custance over at The Hockey News, he's not seeing it the same way:

Allan Walsh, Pavelec's agent, said the Thrashers organization didn't keep promises given to the young goalie when he signed with the team, so he wants out.

"When Ondrej signed two years ago, [Thrashers GM 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," Walsh told SN. "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."
