I think the reason is more about the former possibility of lightening Fleury load, as he wasn't sharp this last playoffs after playing so many games..

Don't see Fleury being traded as he is a core piece, and Pens realize you need to build from the net out with strength down the middle.

Vokoun gives them a veteran depth presence as an insurance policy to a Fleury injury, without it potentially costing the Pens a playoff year.

Wonder more how this move effects the Leafs now, as it was said Vokoun was an option Toronto was considering for their backup needs.
