Hey, coldsteel, I understand you're angry, however, did you hear that Vokoun was allowed to "shop around"? It sounded like he may have approached Pittsburgh and Toronto, but Pittsburgh was the only team to give him a two-year deal. Maybe Vokoun didn't even want to come to Chicago. Bowman can't put a gun to his temple and make him put on our sweater.
I have no doubt Bowman had no interest due to having two goalies under contract but yeah, maybe at this point he doesn't view us as much of a contender as the Pens. The fact that we didn't have a spot open makes the rest of it meaningless though, it just wasn't going to happen simply because of that. I don't know what Bowman was thinking not seeing what was out there before committing to Emery (still shouldn't have signed him no matter what, but what backup goalie gets a new contract in season? Pretty much nobody, let alone someone who played so poorly, it hurts).
