Vokoun -- He's always been the better goaltender IMO.

That said, Fleury will be the starter.

They just got his rights from Washington for a 7th round pick.

Fleury will be the starter assuming the Pens don't move him(which I don't think they will)

Fleury.

But I wouldn't be surprised if Vokoun took over. Never been impressed with MAF.

Funny how steeply one's reputation can drop with just one sub-par season (Vokoun)

Vokoun is better (counting more than just the last season into account), but Fleury will be the starter going into the season because of his age, being a former #1 overall pick and winning them a cup already. Wouldn't be surprised to see Vokoun become the #1 as the season unfolds though.

I think that Vokoun has an excellent chance to take the #1 job. Fleury is so erratic that gives it up at times per season anyways and Johnson seems to get a bunch of games, but is unable to hold onto it. Vokoun could easily prove more consistent than Fleury. Come play time, Bylsma says to himself "Hmmm, put 3 bullets in the barrel, spin it, pull the trigger or just put Vokoun in and have a better chance of winning the game?"

MAF will start the season as the starter if he isn't traded but will lose the starting position by mid season to Vokoun.

Fleury, but Vokoun is a very good insurance policy.

MAF will be the starter, but Vokoun will play a lot more than Brent Johnson did last year and he'll have a far greater chance(still low) of getting a shot at starting if MAF isn't doing well.

What others have said, with Fleury starting, but Vokoun possibly taking over.

It's also possible that MAF had a mental breakdown

MAF is obviously the starter at the beginning, and in all likelihood will remain the starter. But it's definitely not out of the realm of possiblity that Vokoun takes over as starter, and indeed he does have a good chance at doing so.
