All the best for TV's recovery.

On another semi-related subject: Does having TV on LTIR make us salary cap compliant?

Not sure what their current cap situation is. capgeek says they are approx. $1.1 mil over the cap but there have been reports it is lower than that, up to only being over by $.5 mil. The Pens can't put him on LTIR until after day 1 of the season, so to get around that would have to demote a player to WBS for a day. They did something like this a few years ago (Tangradi) when Staal started the year on LTIR. Depending on what cap number you use, $1.1 would mean with Zatkoff ($537,500), the Pens would have approx. $360,000 in cap space (13F, 8D, 2G).

Is murphydump55 one of those French Canadian haters? Or does his negative attitude extend to all areas regardless of ethnic background?

So who is next on the depth chart?? Or does Ray go looking for a short term sub.

Oh yeah and all the best to Thomas V. and getting better. He was a wall during the playoffs.

OK MAF get your head and game together lets do this.

i don't think this affects much of anything. this team makes the playoffs no matter how many games zatkoff plays. assuming vokoun comes back by march, i don't see the big deal. now if he's out for the whole year, we're screwed, but that's not likely, i imagine.

If Vokoun is out until March, who is to say he'll be capable of stepping in and playing at a playoff level? I'm not necessarily worried about the regular season (aside from a potential injury to Fleury, of course), but if he's out long-term, an external backup or potential platoon goaltender is a necessity. I hate to say it, but Bryzgalov should be discussed in addition to Hedberg, Theodore, and possibly (as stupid as this sounds) DiPietro. My choice would come down to Hedberg and Theodore, but I certainly wouldn't rule out Bryzgalov, who could be a strikeout/home run signing on the cheap, given that he's being paid $1.6+ million per year by the Flyers.

Blood thinners suck. I get a paper cut and bleed for 2 hours.

he'll have a over a month to get into game shape in that scenario. but removing the "march" specificity, it still comes down to this...as long as vokoun comes back before XX/XX/2014, this is almost certainly non-issue. the debatable element is when "XX/XX/2014" is.

Does anyone know if this was deep vein thrombosis, or phlebitis. The first is much more serious. The second is only superficial. Since he had a medical procedure done to dissolve it, rather than just going on blood thinners (as I did for a phlebitis in my left leg last year), I suspect it was DVT. That's some really scary stuff.

Was this posted on hfboards - a piece on Vokoun in a Czech newspaper today. Link below is translated to English through Google Translate.

Vokoun was afraid to die. After surgery says: Maybe I will not be playing hockey


Doesn't sound good. As the article brokenly states - Vokoun may be an old man in the hockey world, but he still got plenty of life to live.

That would be a big loss for the Pens, but TV needs to do what's right for him.

As soon as I heard about it, I kind of assumed he'd be retiring. Hopefully he Savard/Prongers his way through the remainder of the contract.

This is the last year of his contract, so he just needs to spend the season on LTIR then retired.
