I would have loved them to sign Vokoun and worked but Bob in but I am not going to monday morning QB like everyone on here that swears they knew Bryz would be a bust.
Bob was noticeably better than Bryz (I'm pretty sure he maintained a .920 to Bryz's .900) until January, when he hit the wall again.

This year he managed to play a combined full season in two without burning himself out. It's conceivable that he wasn't sure how to balance the workload and pushing himself in his first two years without burning himself out. This year it seems he learned that skill. Having a consistency to your workload helps, too.
