from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,
In a deft display of media relations, the Jets had both Byfuglien and Pavelec attempt to diffuse potential time bombs on the same day, and there wasn't a blow-up to be seen.
Byfuglien didn't have to say a word about his off-season conditioning — he looked ready to go, putting a serious crimp in his reputation as the weigh scale's worst enemy.
The Jets were keen to see how Pavelec carried his weight, as well.
And while a few beads of sweat were visible under the brim of his Boston Red Sox cap, the 24-year-old was convincing in his first Winnipeg public appearance since The Crash Heard 'Round the World.
Pavelec sounded genuinely remorseful over his drunk driving conviction in his native Czech Republic last summer.
"It was stupid, that's for sure," were the first words out of his mouth.
