From Jamie Bell:
"(Goaltender Tomas Vokoun) is entering the final year of his contract that will see him earn $6.3 million this season. He is worth every penny of it to the Panthers and they would undoubtedly like to sign him to an extension. However you have to wonder if Vokoun would be open to the idea as he no doubt would like to play for a contender at some point in his career. This could well become an unwanted distraction for Florida and if it appears that a deal is unlikely, than Vokoun may well be traded at some point before the deadline."
Not sure the Cats "undoubtedly" wish to extend him, given what's in the pipeline. Lots more above.
