Tomas Vokoun says Caps closer to Cup than Detroit
Looks like Detroit also made a similar offer
Capitals goalie Tomas Vokoun said that Detroit offered him a deal similar to the one he received from the Capitals, 1 year at $1.5 million.
“Looking at Washington’s lineup compared to Detroit, they are comparable teams,” Vokoun said. “But Detroit in last 10 years won three times Stanley Cup. And Washington never won it. But that’s a lot better challenge for me and the team, to be able to do something special.”
“My belief is this team has a better chance to win than Detroit does. And they showed a lot more interest, so that was the key for me, too.”
