And you're right they could have been worse. Sadly they were only as bad as their worst record in the last 5 years.
Unless you take the position that they had a better alternative available (and that's a position that could probably be argued, no doubt, if you had a lot of faith in Holtby or think Neuvirth responded too poorly to the signing) then the signing was good. Even if it's Vokoun's worst year, if his worst year is better than the alternatives then you take what you can get.

If they had no home-run options, then an underwhelming one is a good signing if it's cheap.
