"Chevy asked me a few times last year or the year before about him," Pavelec said. "I didn't expect anything. Especially after they won the Cup.

Pavelec's team may have dominated Frolik's in those days, but he says there was little doubt who was the better player growing up.
Pavelec, a 1987 baby, was first to the "Q," starring with Cape Breton in 2005 06.
A year after Pavelec arrived, Frolik joined Rimouski, and suddenly the two were opponents.
Frolik has just eight goals in his last 108 regular season games, but Pavelec is quick to point out he had back to back, 20 goal seasons to start his NHL career.
"It didn't matter if it was summer or winter. We just went outside and played hockey."
Pavelec was drafted by Atlanta in 2005, Frolik by Florida a year later.
"In the season he didn't have that much time because they've got Toews, Kane, those players," Pavelec said. "But in the playoff he was a very important player for them. He can play wherever coach wants. He can play first power play, he can be on the penalty kill. He's the kind of player we need."
"He played higher level all the time. In the lockout, 2004, he played with Jagr, and he was 16."

"I think he scored the first game we played against Converse All Star Black Leather High
each other," the 25 year old goalie said. "But we won 3 1. So I was happy. Everybody was happy."
"I've known Michael probably since I was six, seven years old," Pavelec said. "We always played together. The only thing we did when we came home from school was go outside and play hockey. Kladno is a hockey city. A lot of good hockey players growing up there.
"It was great for me that I was going to play with one of my best friends. It's a good story. It's going to be fun. But it's going to be about how we play, too."
"He was always one of the best," Pavelec said. "You could see he had the talent. It wasn't just that he had the talent. He was one of the hardest workers on the team.
"We were calling each other when I was in Cape Breton," Pavelec said. "And we had the same agent. Our dream was to play in the NHL, and we were ready to do whatever it takes. I realized it was the best choice to go to the Quebec League, and he did the same thing."
And he was a key contributor in the Cup run, with 10 points in 23 games.
The two would become teammates again on the Czech national team, but not even a few clues from Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff would tip off Pavelec about what was to come this summer.
