I like Vokoun but I find he is a tad overrated on HF boards. He hasn't really proven anything yet, IMO. He is defenitely better than Turek though. He's only been a starter for 1 season now but people talk about him as though he's a Vezina candidate. The defence left him out to dry last night. The 4th goal, he had already made three saves and Lombardi is standing in front of the net with 2 Preds D-men and neither one of them even look at Lombardi. Vokoun keeps them in a lot of games because of their weak defence but I still feel he is overrated.
