The criticism got so big (despite us winning games), that I had to start an "Official Jose Theodore thread," in which fans would post after every poor performance.

Wow, we've come a long way. Theodore was absolutely brilliant in 2002, and in the 2004 playoffs against the Bruins (Games 5-7). However, as time has worn on, I am relieved he isn't here anymore. We're much more solid and reliable, night in and night out with Price and Halak.
Oh I remember that. He pretty much started sucking after signing his big ass contract, but people were in denial and kept making up excuses for his poor performances, saying stuff like "if it wasn't for Theodore LAST GAME, we would have lost". Then he kept getting worse and worse, and people started waking up.

Yeah, glad that's over.
