Tomas Vokoun has talked with Florida Panthers general manager Randy Sexton about his no-trade clause and a potential move at Wednesday's trade deadline, according to George Richards at the Miami Herald.
We spoke to T-Vo today after the morning skate at Taco Mac Arena and he said he had spoken to GM Randy Sexton regarding the trade rumors and his stance on dropping his no trade.
Vokoun says he had not told Sexton that he would not waive the no trade as I had read somewhere and he knows there are potential deals out there. The Twitterverse is, ahem, a-twitter with rumors that he might be going to Philadelphia.
Which would make for an uncomfortable night come Wednesday what with the Panthers playing host to the Flyers and all.
Many of those Philadelphia rumors on Twitter are stemming from the usually never-reliable Eklund, infamous for simply making rumors up more often than not. But whether he could be going to Philadelphia or somewhere else, Vokoun is at least aware that he may be moved.
With a no-trade clause, the ball is in his court, but according to a Q&A transcript Richards posted on his blog, Vokoun has not said that he will flatly reject any trade.
Vokoun, via Richards:
It's more like, if there's a deal in place, [GM Randy Sexton will] let me know. Ultimately it's my decision, yes or no.
