I hope he gets trusted enough to get a couple meaningful starts.

If the playoffs go well, Vokoun never starts another game this season.

I like Vokoun but, this will be the best team that he ever saw win 16 games from the bench.

And that's no indictment on Vokoun. Simply that if he sees the ice it means either an injury to MAF, or MAF sucking... neither of which are good for the team.

It means no injuries to MAF, and it also likely means the Pens win each series with little adversity. The irony of this is that Vokoun was acquired to give Fleury more rest so that he wouldn't have to play at all this time of year. And nobody understands this better than Vokoun. He knows he played a huge role in this team getting where it is.

Exactly! And I'm sure Vokoun would be the first one to tell you he hopes he doesn't get a second of ice time in the playoffs, because him not playing means the team and Fleury are doing well.
