Important things to remember regarding Vokoun:
- 35+ contract
- He only got paid so low because of how quickly the goalie market dried up.
Let's say we don't sign Bryz when we do, and instead wait it out. Suddenly, we have only two goalies, both who want to get paid. One is about to turn 35 (meaning we then have someone else who were are on the hook for for the foreseeable future, in addition to Pronger, Lilja, and Lappy (any others?)), or a guy a few years younger.
My guess, and it is only a guess, is that we picked the lesser of two evils, and paid more for it. Vokoun is a good goalie, no doubt, but the 35+ contract and the uncertainty of what would happen would have driven his price up, instead of him getting low balled.
