Vokoun has never done anything in the Playoffs, and how is that any different from Hackett? He is still a better, younger, cheaper goalie.

Thibault is injured, true, and it is probably wise to wait until he is healthy to see how he recovers. That said, we dont really need him to be healthy now. We need him for March and April.

I just have never liked Weekes, and wouldn't trust him to be my starting goalie in the playoffs.

Vokuoun may be better or worse than Hackett or Esche, but if I'm making a trade for a goalie, I'm only doing it for one with proven playoff experience.



Also I think Esche will be the guy, not Hackett.
