How do you know he wanted a "rediculous out of this world contract?" Did he tell you that over dinner He is 35, and was looking for one more mid term deal to finish his career, which he had every right to do. He had a decent offer from Florida, but his agent thought to hold off on it. Again, as a free agent, he had every right to see what was available that was best for him. He didnt slap Florida in the face either, because he signed when there were no other options available, and he decided to go to a team that could give him the best shot at the cup. And Vokoun is a much better goalie than Theodore, more that "not by much!"
