Really feel bad for Vokoun. he really gave everything he had and played great. he finally got a chance in the playoffs and really came through for the team.

Seeing him lift the Cup as a starter would have been the ultimate. I was a little kid ThunderBird fan when he started out in Wheeling and always wished him well. He played above and beyond and I think I'm more dissapointed for him than I am losing this series.

He let up 3 goals in 2 games in the ECF. That should be much more than enough to win. Oh well, if he's got 1 more year in him you never know.

Absolutely. Vokoun is the man. If Bylsma survives this, he can thank Vokoun as well because the Pens were on their way to a first round exit before Vokoun stepped in.

Vokoun is an awesome dude. Such a refreshing interview and just altogether someone I'm proud to be a fan of.

It's funny, Vokoun was (supposedly) brought in to give MAF some rest in the regular season, so he would be fresh for the playoffs....

This summer, the Pens just may bring in a similar goalie, so Vokoun is fresh going into the playoffs next year....

Vokoun did everything he could to win a Cup, his .933 save percentage was pretty impressive. He can hold his head up high and know he wasn't the reason for the team's failures.

Thank you, Tomas.

No one could have asked for more from you. Stick around and avenge this year.

Koun was awesome. Stood on his head for the most part. Feel bad that he got literally no help from the rest of the team.

He was awesome and didn't deserve those losses in games 3 and 4.

Yeah I agree, we could not have asked for more from him. He was great. It's so weird that all the questions surrounding our defense and goaltending and the reason we lost is because of lack of offense.

Vokoun played great despite the malfunction of rest of the team.

But it now forces Shero's hand. He must do something with Fleury now.
Similar situation to Luongo's, but fortunately age and length of Fleury's contract are much better. Vokoun though, is 36, and Cory Schneider is young.

So it's not like Vokoun is the answer long-term. We have a year to work this out.

Adding my respect to his thread. What a great job by a guy who had the heart to win and played hard. I hope we can give him a cup next year with our team.

I am 100% in agreement with this thread. Koun was the glue that kept the team in games 3 & 4, despite the eventual losses in each of those games. He's got the 3 "C's"...calm, cool & collected. He definately deserved better than he got. Here's to better results for you in the '13-'14 playoffs. Thanks 92!!! :thumb: :thumb:
