Well nobody could have predicted a fluke, long term injury to Vokoun. As it would have stood we would have had to go out and acquire a stop gap of sorts, a capable fringe starter who could provide us something resembling average goaltending. It's not hard to find a goalie who fits that description who couldn't be had for relatively cheap. Hell, isn't Bryz playing in the ECHL right now? Maybe you take a chance on him and see if he can turn his career around here.

Point being that not having a name #1 goalie is far from the end of the world. There is so much parity at this position that you can find capable goaltending all over the place. Maybe you have to send a pick and a prospect to get Reimer from Toronto. Who knows? What matters more is that you no longer have a historically bad playoff goalie on your team.
