Vokoun A Fit In Toronto?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

On the day before he signed with the Washington Capitals last summer, a representative of Tomas Vokoun called the Maple Leafs and inquired about whether there was interest in the free-agent goaltender.

The Leafs said they had none.

Now, in fact, they have a different view. Vokoun is among the goaltenders the Leafs have targeted as they head towards the NHL draft and looming free agency.

And while it may not seem like the most ambitious of pursuits by the Leafs, it represents a nice, and relatively inexpensive Plan B, should the Leafs determine they can’t or won’t go after the very available Roberto Luongo.

continued plus a few hockey related points…

Why can’t TOR just ever draft a decent goalie?

They could probably get him cheap.  He’s a good stop gap still something better comes along.
