I'm letting you off easy. You were comparing him to a back-up goaltender. A majority of those people took Vokoun or Turco and that thread is just a day old!
Letting me off easy? Bring it on oilflip. you'd better have better evidence than a link to a discussion board. That's just fan opinion, and most fans are ruled by the "grass is always greener" scenario. Thibault and Vokoun are not bad keepers by any stretch, but I wouldn't necessarily think that Vokoun would dramatically improve our goalkeeping situation here, or is THAT much better than Salo. Vokoun has had ONE full season as the #1 keeper. Stat-wise, Vokoun had better stats than Salo last year, but I'm not about to write Tommy off yet.

As I said earlier, I'd be willing to trade for Vokoun (or Thibault) for a prospect but not for Comrie.
