NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators made sure goaltender Tomas Vokoun knows exactly how much they appreciate him.

A franchise that lost in the opening round of the playoffs last spring with Vokoun out because of blood clots announced Monday they have signed the 30-year-old goalie to a four-year extension and given him the franchise's richest contract ever at US$22.8 million.

"Our expectations, our goals are very high," general manager David Poile said. "It starts in goal. If you don't have a good goaltender, you're not going to go anywhere. Certainly with Tomas, we've got a chance to win every game and every playoff game."
