We're paying less for our tandem (Neuvirth/Vokoun) than Phoenix is for theirs (Labarbera/Smith).

That's unfathomable.

Goalies are like running backs in the NFL. They can really help your team but more times then not it's a bad idea to put yourself in a position where they eat up a ton of your cap.

The only thing I don't like about this is that Scott Burnside called it.

Yesterday I saw what people were signing for and I was feeling better about the Bryzgalov contract.

Then, today I saw this.

Dang. Just Dang.

If voukun shines, he's still young enough to sign to term and trade one of the other kids.

Basically puts us back into making a decision next year on a goalie as gmgm stated in his presser.
Dude, hes 34.

@brs03

That made me almost spill my beer on my keyboard. Guess Phoenix should be pretty upset too.

TedStarkey: Fun fact: Bryzgalov will earn more in the first month of the season (13 games) than Vokoun will all season.

This just put Washington as Stanley Cup Favourites.
They will be number 1 in the league for sure.

Dude sometimes stuff comes up. They certainly didn't expect when free agency started to get a guy like Vokoun for a one year $1.5 million contract.

No, he can't be trusted.

They said they wouldn't trade Varlamov and would show restraint in FA---err...

It will be interesting to see how Vokoun does. I've always liked him. But he doesn't make the Caps Cup favorites. But it does solidify the position. I would've like a 3 yr deal.
