But you are right we would probably dont get full value of theo in a trade.
Guaranteed: If Theo were dealt, and Garon had a strech of bad games, we would then engage in another bout of handwringing regarding the goaltending situation. Why focus on one area where there isn't a problem and try to create one?
There is a good reason Theo is adored-because he is a superstar who undoubtedly got us into the playoffs one season and arguably was the main reason we made it this season as well. A player should not be dealt simply because he is popular! Who cares if he is overrated by the media? He achieved superstar status because he played like a superstar. He is better than any alternative....
I shudder to think what the opinion of the Board would have been back in the 70's. "Lafluer is too popular in Quebec. We should deal him for a couple of grinders to allow for more focus on the entire team..."
