Tomas Vokoun signs a one-year deal with the Washington Capitals for $1.5 million.
Holy ****.

Definitely makes you wonder what the Avs were thinking though.

GMGM is an f'ing wizard.

$1.5mil? He might be the best goalie in the division still.

Hershey will now win the Calder with Holtby in net.

Jeffler 07-02-2011 05:11 PM

GODLIKE. Immense signing for the Caps.

Pretty much, probably. This definitely...changes things from top to bottom in the organization.

It's Vokoun who messed up. Or his agent maybe more precisely. He priced himself out of Florida, Phoenix, and Colorado. Now the Caps get him on a bargain basement deal. Congrats, you are probably Cup favorites out of the East now.

Dirtbag59 07-02-2011 05:12 PM

BTW are we just trying to sign everyone thats kicked our butt in the past? First Hamrlick and now Vokoun.

Brilliant signing by the Caps. They have been very aggressive this offseason.

Atlas 07-02-2011 05:13 PM

I like it!

mrwarden 07-02-2011 05:13 PM

Now we need to trade him to Colorado for their next two 1sts after 2012. Heh.

IafrateOvie34 07-02-2011 05:14 PM

ROFLMAO! Now get Alzner signed so no more trolls post about RFA contracts.

mrwarden 07-02-2011 05:14 PM

In summary, trade young, brittle goaltender, get 1st and 2nd round picks, sign better goaltender for less money.

Ovechkins Wodka 07-02-2011 05:15 PM

love this signing. sucks for holtby but its nice to have a proven goalie now

Wow. Speechless. Unbelievably happy. Thoughts later!

i2edAlien 07-02-2011 05:15 PM

Wow.

Lucbourdon 07-02-2011 05:16 PM

WOW 1.5m for the only gamebreaking goalie and imo alongside richards, the only gamebreaking players in free agency.

What a ****ing steal, you guys have a true #1 now.

JVR21 07-02-2011 05:16 PM

**** you guys.

Mystlyfe 07-02-2011 05:16 PM

I'm not sure who to feel worse for. Flyers fans or Avs fans.


In reality though, I CANT STOP LAUGHING.

mrwarden 07-02-2011 05:16 PM

Yeah the Bryz deal is pretty funny now too

usiel 07-02-2011 05:16 PM

Man that came out of no where. GREAT signing. As much as like Neuvy/Holtby thats just a young tandem to attempt to contend for the cup. I wonder what the fail bots will say now, heh.

Holtby does need another year at Hershey.

Ovechkins Wodka 07-02-2011 05:18 PM

I love gmgm. where is that pic

Yeah things worked out perfectly for you guys yesterday. Unbelievable luck.

HSHS 07-02-2011 05:19 PM

Holy ****.

Wow

mrwarden 07-02-2011 05:19 PM

The Caps just trolled the **** out of the league. First time with an established true 1 since Olie. Man.
