Pittsburgh Penguins acquired goalie Tomas Vokoun

Would have gladly offered a 7th for him, Vokoun likely "chose" pitts as he has a NMC and seemingly already had a deal worked out

Great deal for the Pens. Get Vokoun's rights for next to nothing and get him signed pretty cheap. Definitely a much better back-up option if Fleury struggles.

And that takes another goalie option from us.

Too bad. I would have been ALL over that sort of move.

Surprised Vokun would sign as a Backup. Must really want a ring.

Probably why, yes. Or Pittsburgh might be trying to lighten the load on Fleury during the regular season. Or they might be trading Fleury.. We'll see what happens.

I forget the exact rule but it's something like teams can make trades after the deadline, players just can't play for that team until the next season.

Awe shucks. Really thought he would be perfect here.

Does this make Luongo option A now?

This. There's no rule saying that deals can't be made during the playoffs, its just uncommon for GMs to trade during that time. Despite popular belief, there is no "trade freeze."

I think the reason is more about the former possibility of lightening Fleury load, as he wasn't sharp this last playoffs after playing so many games..

Don't see Fleury being traded as he is a core piece, and Pens realize you need to build from the net out with strength down the middle.

Vokoun gives them a veteran depth presence as an insurance policy to a Fleury injury, without it potentially costing the Pens a playoff year.

Wonder more how this move effects the Leafs now, as it was said Vokoun was an option Toronto was considering for their backup needs.

Exactly my thought as well. Coming here, or even somewhere like Tampa and he would have a great opportunity to be a #1.

Edit: What do you guys think this means for the Leafs? Luongo? Lindback? Someone else off the board?

I believe you can make a trade after you have been eliminated from the playoffs. So 28 teams can make a trade with the exception of two right now (LA and NJ).

In addition to this non playoff teams off-season begin at the end of the regular season..

With no more games to be played there is essentially no trade freeze as the player can't effect the current season's results any further.

Kyperos is reporting that the Leafs rejected the exact same deal from Washington.

They would have had to give up a 7th and signed him to a two year deal worth 2 million per.

Well lets put it this way, This is burke's 5th season, and his job is on the line.

Would u want,

A - Harding
B - Lindback
C - Luongo

Pretty clear, he NEEDS to make the playoffs this year, its luongo or bust for burke.
