Markstrom is still a year, year 1/2 away from even playing in the bigs, let alone taking the no. 1 spot.
I have been a big fan of the Vokoun trade and his play here. Yes he has given up some softies (as everyone does; see Fleury, Price, Luongo, etc.). But when he is on his game, he is top 3 in the league. The main reason why we have won games the past few seasons is because of him. Had he more support upfront and a better defensive core he would have more wins and would most likely carried us in the play-offs.
Now I may start a ruckus here but watching these two goalies play as Panthers, Vokoun is the best goaltender this franchise has had. Vokoun > Vanbiesbrouck.
I hope Tallon signs Vokoun to a 2 year - 4.5 deal with incentives. Option for a 3rd year.
