If you were to poll the Winnipeg Jets at this moment as to who their MVP is, the answer -- just for the record -- would not be unanimous.

Oh sure, almost from the drop of the first puck back in October through the recent dominant homestand the players have repeated over and over again that goaltender Ondrej Pavelec has kept them in games they had no business being in, stolen more than a few and generally done what all star puck-stoppers do: absolutely carry a team.

But bring this up to the Czech netminder himself -- explain that in our very informal poll he almost certainly would secure the MVP honour -- and he kicks aside the compliment like a toe save on a Stamkos slapper.
