Sure when you fabricate every trade into something it wasn't you can make it all look worse and much better that Bowman did nothing. But in the real world that's not the case.
No, he was talking about 2010 before the deadline after the Barker trade. Florida was willing to move Vokoun and many people were speculating that Chicago was among the interested parties. Reports (other than the blog clowns) were reporting rumors that Chicago and Florida were talking about a trade since Huet and Niemi were playing hot potato with the starting job. I've never heard the rumor confirmed though but I believed it based on some local interviews and answers to some of the questions about the goalie mess at the time. They were poking around other goalies at the time too.
