I've already addressed and debunked that myth. The trade deadline actually expired at 3pm. The waiver deadline was noon. Since the offer for Vokoun didnt come in until late, those goalies on waivers had already cleared BEFORE Vokoun wouldve been traded. So no YOU are incorrect in what you're saying so please stop trying to perpetuate that myth.

Also I believe the rosters are frozen in that no players outside the organization can be claimed after the deadline (has nothing to do with playoffs or not). So if Tallon traded Vokoun at the deadline since he couldnt claim anyone before trading him, the only option wouldve been to call up a goalie.
