Any news re: a new deal for Vokoun? i.e. What he's asking for, what the Preds are offering, or have any discussions even happened yet?
There have been discussion.
This from The Tennesean
"Deadline approaching: The NHL's deadline to file for arbitration is Thursday, and six Predators the team is interested in keeping — defensemen Zidlicky, Mark Eaton and Shane Hnidy, as well as goalie Tomas Vokoun and forwards Steve Sullivan and Vladimir Orszagh — have arbitration rights.
Predators General Manager David Poile said the organization has been in touch with the agents for all the players, and he's hoping deals can be agreed upon without going through arbitration.
Even if players file for arbitration by Thursday, deals can be worked out all the way up until an arbitration decision is reached in August."
