The Penguins get an awkward dynamic with having added a starting goalie to their roster after their franchise goalie shat the bed in the playoffs, and the Capitals get an extra draft pick for someone they signed as a UFA last year and weren't going to re-sign. A 7th rounder, yeah, but one of those netted Garrett Haar, so don't write it off as worthless just yet. There aren't very many teams looking for a starting goalie, and the Penguins could have just as easily signed him on July 1st. Good trade.

Word around the trade deadline was that Toronto has no interest in Vokoun. Maybe Chicago, I guess.
