Tomas Vokoun Quotes

18 Tomas Vokoun quotes:

"You got to have dreams and obviously that [the Vezina Trophy] is one of them, ... I want to be the best goalie in the league, not because I think I will be one day just because you have to set your goals as high as you can. I want to win it one day. I'll do everything I can, and I'll know that if I don't win it, that at least I did everything I could. And that's more important to me than actually winning it."

"We had been scoring a lot of goals and maybe we felt like we just couldn't lose. We started playing loose, but now we're not scoring four or five goals a game per night. And in this NHL, you're not going to win many goals scoring two goals a night."

"I don't know if it's the Red Wings. We've been giving up that many shots about the last three weeks. We're not playing well defensively. If you want to win, you have to start in your own zone. You can't give up 40, 45 shots every night. Especially in this league where you can't hold guys, you can't give up these kind of chances."

"For European goalies coming over here the toughest thing is learning how to play the puck and deal with the traffic. You often have to fight through the traffic to see the puck. Those things you have to learn. Every European is usually good on breakaways and back door plays because we are so used to it. There are not as many shots back in Europe but (there are) a lot of back door dishes and plays around the net."
