Timonen and Kariya's no-show against the Sharks(both were downright bad) this year was a big part of why we lost.
If Sullivan's surgery takes care of the chronic problem, having him back..and healthy...is an upgrade over Kariya, IMO. We lose Timonen's offense, but with Weber being another year older, and Zidlicky getting back on track...we can fill it in. DeVries is better defensively than Timonen.
Vokoun was great in the playoffs...but was wildly inconsistent during the regular season. I said before...I think he has higher end ability, but Mason is more consistent...and it's not like he's a bad goaltender. I think he's capable of being a starter, most of us felt that way last year..it's just easier to be doom and gloom at a time like these.
I think this is easily still a playoff team.
