By your philiosophy, why the hell do we even have defenseman?

Vokoun hasn't been fatastic this year, but welcome to the life of an NHL goaltender. No goaltender is consistently fantastic. The only one that remotely comes close is Martin Brodeur. Meanwhile, guys like Khabibulin, Giguere, Cujo, Theodore, Checkmanek, Salo, Dunham, Turco, Kolzing, etc will all of their ups and downs. Sometimes they will be fantastic, sometimes they will be average. Right now, Vokoun is average. Expecting him to be fantastic all the time and cover up all the defenseman's mistakes all the time is asking quite a lot.
