Will The Panthers Look For A New Goalie Too?

from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald,

The Panthers kept goaltender Tomas Vokoun past the trade deadline. Now, with unrestricted free agency approaching, the question is how much they want to keep him beyond this season.

Vokoun, who has a no-trade clause, said he told the Panthers there were three teams he would have been willing to accept a trade to, but Florida never came to him with any proposal before Monday’s deadline.

“You want to play in the playoffs,” he said. “In a way, it is a little bit disappointing. But I like being here, too. It’s not like I asked to leave. I told them I’d like to stay.”

After initially expressing interest in extending his contract, the Panthers announced last month they would not offer any new contracts until the season ends.
