NHL News: Tomas Vokoun Wants To Play Again (Poll)

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 .
