We had a chance last year to aquire Vokoun but Burke didn't want to do a multi year deal with him, which I was really upset about. Now we're trying to aquire a goalie that relatively the same age (3 years younger) that has ten more years left on his contract.
Vokoun age 36
2011-12 season 25W 17L 2.51GAA .916%
$2 million until 2013-14
Luongo age 33
2011-12 season 31W 14L 2.41GAA .919%
5.33 million until 2021-2022
So I need to ask who would you guys rather have not who do you think is better because for the same price and term most would agree Luongo is the better goalie. But consider all aspects.
vokoun. Funny you changed your username right afterwards Burke's firing.
To be honest with you I didnt want to but I think it would be more disrespectful to him to keep it.... almost look like i'm slamming him... I think it was stupid to let him go and he was an excellent gm... But I do like Nonnis..... But I still love Burkie and will cheer for him where ever he goes
The journeyman, of course. We must preserve the opportunity for high draft choices at all costs. Any attempt to move up the standings must be thwarted immediately. The next 8 drafts are the deepest in all of world history and we must take advantage.
We will have thee #1C's, three #D's and two #G's and then we can trade them for more draft picks.
I dream of the day when we own the first 20 overall picks in a single draft.
