could you supply a complete example next time ?
Try myfunc[] with a more restrictive pattern and 
it works:

myArray = Flatten[Table[{n, 1, Random[]}, {15}, {n, 1, 21}], 1];

myfunc[n_, pthreshold_?NumericQ] := 
    t = Max[Cases[myArray, {n, k_, p_} /; (p >= pthreshold) -> p, 2]];
    If[t >= 0, t, -1]]

Plot[Evaluate[Table[myfunc[n, p], {n, 1, 21}]], {p, 0.0, 1.0}]
