Compared to Bryzgalov:

Bryz has had some bumps and bruises here and there but it appears that Vokoun gets injured more often. Combine that with Vokoun's age and maybe that's a reason we went for Bryz.

Of course you could say that since Vokoun is older that he has played more games and therefore has more of a chance of getting injured. But regardless of that fact, Bryz is definitely the fresher goalie.
If so, then that's kind of dumb. The worst injury of his career (20 games) was a thumb injury. He's averaged 60 games a year down in Florida. The rest, similar to Bryz, were just bumps and bruises here and there.

Vokoun: 11 games the last 3 years.
Bryz: 8 games the last 3 years.
