Joe Pavelski wanted to win the Stanley Cup and visited only Tampa Bay and Dallas during his free agency in the summer of 2019.
Pavelski became a UFA after 13 seasons in San Jose and decided to visit the two cities now vying for the Stanley Cup. “For where we were in San Jose (as a family) and what San Jose meant to us, if I was going to be leaving, I definitely wanted a place where I had an opportunity to win,” Pavelski said. “There were certain teams that identified themselves, you know, clearer than others. Ones that I had visions for. And then also there were certain ones that had mutual respect coming back. So it kind of cleared a few things up. I had some good options. And I went from there.” Pavelski had only 31 points in the regular season but has turned it on in the playoffs with nine goals and 14 points in 21 games. Yesterday 8:28 am (EST)
