Tomas Vokoun signs a one-year deal with the Washington Capitals for $1.5 million.
Holy ****.

Definitely makes you wonder what the Avs were thinking though.

GMGM is an f'ing wizard.

$1.5mil? He might be the best goalie in the division still.

Pretty much, probably. This definitely...changes things from top to bottom in the organization.

It's Vokoun who messed up. Or his agent maybe more precisely. He priced himself out of Florida, Phoenix, and Colorado. Now the Caps get him on a bargain basement deal. Congrats, you are probably Cup favorites out of the East now.

Brilliant signing by the Caps. They have been very aggressive this offseason.

In summary, trade young, brittle goaltender, get 1st and 2nd round picks, sign better goaltender for less money.

WOW 1.5m for the only gamebreaking goalie and imo alongside richards, the only gamebreaking players in free agency.

What a ****ing steal, you guys have a true #1 now.

I'm not sure who to feel worse for. Flyers fans or Avs fans.


In reality though, I CANT STOP LAUGHING.

Man that came out of no where. GREAT signing. As much as like Neuvy/Holtby thats just a young tandem to attempt to contend for the cup. I wonder what the fail bots will say now, heh.

Holtby does need another year at Hershey.

The Caps just trolled the **** out of the league. First time with an established true 1 since Olie. Man.
