I think that Theodore had a lot more problems than his goalie coach. First of all, I think that his downfall started when the league reduced the pad size. Theodore isn't that tall, which isn't good when you're a butterfly goaltender, so he used his pads to compensate the height when he got on his knees. I don't think we can blame Melanson for him being too short.
Furthermore, I don't think we can blame Melanson for Théo's personal problems. Blame Melanson for his family's betting and gambling ring? Blame Melanson for his legal dispute with his neighbor? Blame Melanson for his party lifestyle and his superstar persona that got to his head?
