Vokoun is one of the best free agent goaltenders this year, and he’s ready to get out of Miami.
His resumé from last season includes a respectable .923 save percentage with a goals against average of 2.57. He’s been the one to keep the Panthers in the game, but after a record 10th straight season without a playoff berth, Vokoun is looking for new surroundings.
Vokoun might be able to stay in Florida. By going to Tampa Bay, he can stay in the state he enjoys and play for a playoff-bound team.
The Lightning currently are looking at resigning Roloson, but at 41 years old, he shouldn’t be looked at as their main guy. If Tampa Bay can afford it, both goalies would be great, but if they can get Vokoun, it would be a huge upgrade.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have also been in the conversation around Vokoun. It’s unsure if anything will come of it, but with the possible departure of Jean Sebastien Giguere, that is another possibility.
