The issue is Theodore's consistency. He's a potential backup because he's not as reliable or consistent as guye like Luongo. Any goalie can have 1 good to decent season. It's the ability to string them together that separates the marginal netminders from the top tier.

Tallon already went to Panther management to get the okay on Luongo's contract and he got it. There's no question they're looking at upgrading the position. They just don't want to move Bjugstad to do it. And with where they are, I wouldn't either.
