This makes me happy if only because it reminds me how bad Fleury was.

The risk/reward here doesn't seem to be worth it, but meh. Maybe GMGM knows Vokoun's groin is pretty bad and isn't concerned that he might have a good season in Pittsburgh.

Fleury is so bad they paid an asset for a ufa with an absolutely shredded groin. I had assumed Vokuon would have to go to someone's training camp without a contract.

This is a steal. Why on god's green earth would the Penguins give up a bag of pucks, much less an actual draft pick?

Something for nothing. We couldn't stop him from signing with the Pens on July 1, so might as well accept a free pick now.

As CapsWolverinesUSA pointed out, that's something for nothing trade. Same with Hamill/Bourque. I'm happy with it. Grrreat. No irony, but that's a well done job by GMGM. We've got two assets out of nothing.

He was *bad.* Hope he can get a chance to redeem himself somewhere but it wouldn't shock me to see him head to Europe if he can make it work family-wise.

Man will the goalie market be fun to watch now. Vokoun was, what, the biggest UFA option out there? And he's signed by a team that, if you had asked yesterday, probably wouldn't have been mentioned as looking for anything this offseason.

Risk/reward isn't worth it here...with here being Pittsburgh, right?

This is an old UFA, who suffered a pretty bad injury and wasn't all that happy in town(see: Probably not going to re-sign)...and somehow we got something for him and that's...bad?

I never get it. If you get a guy through FA and flip him into a pick, all you've done is basically buy a pick. If the owners willing to front the cash, does it matter?

Vokun may give us a headache next year but how bout a few years down the road? While we're gonna get some possible 20 something that could give them a headache in a few years.

This is part of GMGM's master plan...trade his bad pickups to the enemy.

Vokoun wasn't even remotely close to a bad pickup,

Vokoun wasn't bad this year. Maybe the first... 1/3 of the year... he saved us in at least a handful of games.

Yeah, seriously. I'm kind of surprised by Vokoun's choice here. I guess what happened last year made him really wary of waiting.

It will be when they select the next Haar.

Now they can pick up the other Rupert twin as well.
