It would have been awesome to keep him, he fit well and was good in the room, but he obviously didn't care all that much about staying.
Theo wanted to come here, and his deal actually makes sense for the team. It was a no-brainer once Huet got Chicago involved.
I don't know whether it is true or not but i heard Huet backed out because Washington refused to give him a 4th year.
