Making our team worse just to upgrade from a 2.19 GAA to a 2.00 GAA and a 0.920 SV% to a 0.930 SV% is not worth Jeff Carter.
I agree Vokoun is not worth us giving up Carter, but you're comparing 18 starts of a career minor leaguer to a legit #1 goalie. Vokoun is unlikely to be much better than Leighton's current performance, but Leighton us unlikely to continue at this level for the rest of Vokoun's contract.

Obviously not. Leighton is just hot right now. He's bound to mess up.

Even so, Vokoun is no way worth the loss of Carter, though I will admit I would love to get Vokoun in Philly. It's a much better option that Halak, Price, or Turco.
