Free agent options are really thin:
Vokoun
Bryzgalov

Goalies stuck behind big names:
Schneider
Rask
Lindback
Enroth(RFA)
Bernier
Harding

Vokoun would be my far and away #1 choice. The bottom names all have NHL experience but it's really a gamble unless you're trading for a Rask/Schneider.
I agree, Vokoun would be the one to shoot for, with Bryzgalov a close second. While he may want top dollar, I doubt Bryz ends up with a contract exceeding $4m, which is a stretch itself. Detroit tore him to pieces and goalies simply are not worth significant invesiment barring rare exceptions. Schneider is definitely NHL ready and has stellar written all over him but he would cost an arm and a leg to acquire. Bernier is less proven but bodes a similar problem. Rask is all but untouchable and I wager Boston would abandon Thomas before Rask.
