Obviously Vokoun comes here its as a backup role, I was just curious if he and Deboer got at it like a lot of players on that panther squad, it was just a simple question.

I'm not being completely literal, just like your quoted post isn't entirely serious. I'm saying that in a nutshell, that is the backups role and mentality.

Yes, but you were addressing Zubie saying Pete had already existing issues with Vokoun and you said to tell him to just sit down and do the job. Maybe in 1978, but this isn't how successful people do things in today's world.

I still think Vokoun should be a starter somewhere. With the number of back to backs we have I would be very happy to see him in NJ. Although if there are any issues with the coach, then I would pass. Last thing this team needs.

A professional true back up does not need to be reminded of what his position entails. They get it. It's always the former starters that you have to have this conversation with and even then (Brodeur anyone?) it takes time to "house train" them.

Didn't Vokoun had a shaky relationship with Deboer? Or am I thinking it was Clemmensen.

 

Probably both lol...Clemmensen was more vocally anti-Pete but Vokoun I'm sure wasn't thrilled the times he was benched for Clemmensen.

He's an old veteran, he knows what his role would be, similar to Hedberg and that was I was implying.  And Vokoun? A starter?! Name one team where he would be considered a starter where he could play more than 40 games.  There isn't a starting job on the market right now really.

No one thinks that except Leafs fans.

Not true. Habs fans are as bad if not worse for players that came up in that area. And the WCF fans did the same before the Flames and Oilers became terrible that they then joked that even those players would stay away.

Updated (Gustavsson and McElhinney are gone)

 

Keith Kinkaid - Albany
Chad Johnson - UFA (the Bruins give any goalie a boost but he's been really solid)
Giguere - UFA
Viktor Fasth - 1 year left (trade possibility)
Jhonas Enroth - 1 year left (but there's an overflow of goalies in Buffalo)
Thomas Greiss - UFA
Joey MacDonald - UFA (not an exciting choice)
Al Montoya - UFA
Justin Peters - UFA
Darcy Kuemper - RFA  (but there's an overflow of goalies in Minnesota)

I'd give Giguere a year if he decides to not retire, he did well with the Avs.

He's retiring.  He's said it multiple times.  I can't imagine he'd say it over and over again and then come back.

Well, he said he would officially announce in June and he has yet to do so. Until he makes it official I think he should be kept in the conversation.

I guess add Jacob Markstrom as a possibility if Vancouver feels like giving us another goalie?  ha

Just heard this on the NHL Network coverage.

Didn't see anything official yet but that was the word they got and reported.

"Its official the Brodeur era is over in NJ"

 

TG saying its a one year, two-way contract....maybe this means backup duties can be rotated between him and Kincaid?
