My point remains.
Its is a lousy point as having Vokoun as a number two playing a limited (for him) number of games decreases the value he has.

Personally I think Vokoun is better than Fleury, and the net gain in points of having him start Fleury's games would be bigger than the loss from having Reimer take Vokoun's starts. But as that is (despite of everything) a minority view here, say for arguments sake that Fleury is better than Vokoun, the net loss would not be significant.
I would greatly prefer adding Kulemin to Malkin's line and having extra cap-space to find a winger for Sid also, and in any case I think Fleury could likely net more than this anyway. At least if any GM agrees with you that he is a franchise goalie.
