I think it would have been wrong
to chant his name. Of course he doesn't suck. I think everyone is grateful for what he did for us. However, he's now a goalie on another team.
We gave him a standing ovation during the first TV timeout and a video tribute. Had people booed him or not clapped or whatever, that would have been disgraceful.
I don't think Vokoun is going to walk away from that game thinking, wow they don't really like me there. He acknowledged everyone during the video tribute.
Those people calling in in disgust over his name being chanted are the same ones who complain about every little thing. They were probably the same people last year calling in to complain that Chris Mason wasn't playing enough and will complain whenever we play Chris Mason again.
