When it comes to the Jets’ goaltending, there are some meaty question marks, what with No. 1 man Ondrej Pavelec not only a restricted free agent but drawing interest from the KHL—negotiating ploy or not—and with veteran backup Chris Mason scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in just over two weeks.
