|Quality of play isn't a question mark for Tomas Vokoun, but age and workload might be heading into the 2013-14 campaign. The 37-year-old went 13-4 with a 2.45 goals-against average, .919 save percentage and three shutouts in the regular season. He then helped to save Pittsburgh from an early first-round playoff exit, relieving an ineffective Marc-Andre Fleury in Round 1 and then leading his team to the Eastern Conference finals. Vokoun probably can't handle more than a 55-game workload anymore and there are no guarantees that Fleury doesn't continue his regular-season prowess and leave 30 or so games for Vokoun. The Czech's numbers are still quality-filled, but the quantity remains in question. (Updated 8/12/13) |
