Cechmanek stats are as good as Theodore. Cloutier can be spectacular sometimes.
There is only a handful of goaltenders that are bad and don't give their team a chance to win every night.
In that regard, Theodore is overrated because most Habs fans talk about him like he's one of a kind when he's just one of a pack of 20-25 starters (on a total of 30 teams).
Even though I wouldn't take a guy like Cloutier over Theodore, the idea of paying Theo like he's some kind of unbelievably rare commodity is just nuts. If he'd played all of last year and the first 25 games of this year like 2001, I'd be a believer. He hasn't, and I isn't.
