Tomas Vokoun Likely Staying

Vokoun ATLANTA -- It doesn't appear that Tomas Vokoun has played his final game with the Panthers as it looks like he will at least finish this season in sunny South Florida.

The Panthers will likely reassess things in the summer when more teams -- and more assets -- are available.

Of course, things could change. But right now, it doesn't look like the Panthers are going to get what they think they should for a goalie of Vokoun's caliber.

With money tight between most teams in contention, Vokoun's cap hit of around $1.2 million from now until the end of the season is prohibiting most teams from making realistic offers.

I would be surprised if Vokoun wasn't in net in Sunrise tomorrow -- backstopping the Panthers and not the Flyers.

Of course, you never know what kind of deal Randy Sexton might be able to swing between now and then. Wednesday's 3 p.m. deadline is quickly approaching, but plenty can be worked out in those hours.

Tick tock, tick tock.
