Maloney Has Contacted Vokoun

Quote:

EDMONTON JOURNAL: Peter Adler reported Florida Panthers goalie Tomas Vokoun recently told a Czech newspaper he wouldn’t be displeased if he got a good offer to stay with the Panthers, but would also consider an offer from a team which he felt had a chance to challenge for the Stanley Cup. Interestingly, he cited the Colorado Avalanche as a possibility. He also acknowledged he’d heard from the Philadelphia Flyers and the Phoenix Coyotes. David Staples suggested the Oilers should consider making an offer if they’re serious about winning now, though it sounds as though they wouldn’t be his first choice.
Coming from an interview with the Edmonton Journal, where Vokoun actually comments on possible destinations.

According to Mlada fronta Dnes, Vokoun has heard from Philadelphia where the club is trying to decide whether to hire Ilya Bryzgalov whose rights it had obtained from the Phoenix Coyotes, or look elsewhere (such as Vokoun) instead, and from the Coyotes who would like to replace the spot left by Bryzgalov’s departure.

“I would not be displeased if I got a good offer from Floria and accepted it,” the paper quotes Vokoun as saying. “But if I happen to get an offer from a team that might have a chance to challenge for the Stanley Cup, now, that might be irresistible.”
Well, take it for what it's worth. I certainly believe we will be in the running.

We will for sure be in talks with him but hopefully we do not get into a bidding war with another club which seems likely.

I think Maloney knows better. He's a smart guy.

This is ********. I don't buy it at all. That would be tampering. We aren't tampering. We're owned by the effing league for eff's sakes. We're the last team that would be tampering with another club's players. No way this is true.

rt 06-17-2011 01:29 AM

Haha. Looks like somebody on the main board has ALREADY squashed this as false. Gotta love the internet. Haha.

I kid. I'm just reporting what I see, Spector has always been fairly consistent with breaking rumors.

Tis the season for rumor-mongering... Buy Outs, Qualifyings,and the Draft are still in the future... I do wonder which buy outs will try to resurrect their career in AZ if any...
I can't see the Coyotes offering Vokoun more money then he offered Bryzgalov, and unless he has no other option...

Doubt we get Vokoun, I'd like to go younger ala Bernier or Rask. Would be really funny if we dealt the best FA goalie and signed the other one though.

The first thing that came to my mind was the tampering charge, so it's likely not correct unless Maloney got permission from Tallon to speak to Vokoun's agent. It's possible, but usually a team would trade for the rights like Philly did with Bryz instead of just letting teams talk to your UFA's early without any compensation.

I look at as his agent put out feelers (generalization questions to see if there might be interest) to see if there is, and who, that has interest in a UFA #1 goalie and no direct contact...

A foreign news report, I suspect some sort of bad translation being involve...

Tampering much?

+1

Maloney, when asked specifically about Turco on that radio interview last week, said he wouldn't comment on any players under contract until July 1st, because that would be tampering. So any 'rumor' claiming that he's talked to a player without explaining how he got the right to do so, is not only false, it's dishonest.

That's why you could get away with it! The league can't fine itself.
