Tomas Vokoun has had an interesting couple of months. He went through the free agency freeze, expecting to be coveted to waiting around a few days for an offer. The frustration of that was offset by going from a perennial loser with the Panthers to an annual power in the Capitals.

There he will battle with Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby, but that's another story altogehter (which Adam Gretz already covered!).

Vokoun only spent four years in Florida, but he made no secret how much he enjoys living in the area. So it's no surprise that he was working out at the Panthers team facility in Coral Springs, Fla. on Monday when Miami Herald writer George Richards caught up with the goaltender.

In their nearly 15-minute interview, the conversation runs the gamut from Vokoun playing for a contender and the possibility of pressure joining him. Plus they talk about the frustrations of July 1 and the relationship with former Panthers coach and now Devils head man Peter DeBoer.

Above is the first of three parts in the interview. Click here for Part II and click here for Part III.

Vokoun talks about joining Caps, leaving Cats

Finally a reliable, underrated goalie who was a diamond-in-the-rough, has an offense which score 3 goals with regularity & 4 on most occasions. Caps would ice Southwest Division despite emerging superstar Steven Stamkos' presence with the Bolts.
