Vokoun faced more shots/game away than at home in three out of the four seasons he played in Florida. Hard to prove that it was Florida scorers inflating his stats if the rest of the league seemingly did the same.

Vokoun has ONE playoff win post lockout! When Vokoun starts playing well in important games, then maybe he can be higher than the 7th best.
Don't see how you can blame Vokoun for drawing terrible teams (and an injury in this most recent year). And Vokoun has played extremely well in "important games" in international play.

If one evaluates goalies based on their actual play, Vokoun absolutely deserves to be mentioned amongst the very best goalies since the lockout.
