So many hypocrites on this board. People don't want to give Bryzgalov 6 or more years (taking him to age 37 or more), or give Vokoun 3 or more years (taking him to age 38 or more), but people complain we didn't make a move for the guy who was 36, with 3 more years on his contract, taking him to 39.
Oh, and his is a 35+ contract (something that neither Bryzgalov's or Vokoun's will be).
You just couldn't risk that contract.
In a capless world, I'd have made the deal in second, but we don't live in a capless world.
