He's there to lighten Fleury's regular season load and provide quality veteran insurance in case he falters again in the playoffs. Kulemin would be a nice wing target to take a flier on, but Mike Bossy wouldn't help us win a series if we get goaltending like we did vs. Philly.

The answer's a resounding "NO". Vokoun has an absolutely essential role to play here.
I guess the main thing we disagree on here is that I think Reimer is pretty similar in skill to Vokoun at this point.
