New Washington goalie Tomas Vokoun appeared at the Kettle Ice Complex and took in some practice today. Vokoun gave few details about how and why he chose to sign a one year deal with Washington after the NHL free agency demand for goalies collapsed before him during the off-season. Vokoun was pretty clear. He picked the Washington Capitals over the Detroit Red Wings. This from Chuck Gormley;
Honestly, you can't and don't want to expect any other kind of attitude for a young net minder. The fact he is not just ready to cede the starting job to an elite goaltender like Vokoun speaks volumes on the kid's confidence and how he has handled the Vokoun signing.
