He was the ONLY reason why won games 2 seasons ago. Right now the reason why we are winning is because of the defenseman , the system, the players buying into it and playing as a team.
Before the season begin I said the key wasn't even Theo playing as he did in 01-02. I said he just needed to play better than last year. And I still believe that.
Honestly, the team has played very good defensive hockey and limited a lot of the numerous scoring chances of the past. Thus, Théodore and Garon haven't had to steal a game so far.
Against the isles, most of the shots on goal had to be from the perimeter. Still, a few good chances, but nonetheless most of those théo should've and did stop.
