The Pittsburgh Penguins have goaltending problems, and that could be in part due to missing Tomas Vokoun. The plan was for Vokoun to retire after the 2013-2014 season, but it seems that he has changed his mind. Vokoun is a free agent, with no clear landing-place.

For Vokoun a return to the ice is a great thing, but there may not be any work for the aging goaltender. With Ryan Miller, and Martin Brodeur hanging out in the free agency market; Vokoun may just need to wait and see. I could see a few teams taking a chance on Vokoun, he has proven to be a solid playoff goalie, and will most likely come cheap.

I believe this comeback is about proving something to himself, and not about grabbing a big contract. Maybe the Buffalo Sabres, or Minnesota Wild could look into bring in the veteran. It doesn’t really matter where Vokoun signs it will be a great story. It’s not every day that a player is able to return to the NHL after a life-threatening health problem .

 

What team will sign Vokoun?
