Yeah, he "suspected" they wouldn't re-sign Huet. I'm sure there was no talking going on behind the scenes there...

If the Washington Capitals of two years ago had tried to recruit Jose Theodore, he would have been a tougher catch.

"I might have paused," the 31-year-old goaltender said. "I don't say I wouldn't have come, but it would have been maybe a different scenario."



Show's what kind of player he was, or how much faith he had in our team.

BTW who's ignoring the fact that said goalie is 2-12 in the second round?
I think it's 2-16

swept in 04, 06, and 08

lost 4-2 in 02

Good link Jori.

As for Coach Bruce Boudreau's high-octane offense, which can ask a lot of goaltenders, Théodore cracked: "I'm aware of that. It just means more highlight saves for me, I guess."
Reading the tea leaves on that comment I feel much better that him and his pimp cane are on another club.

He is going to be just terrible in washington because of their system and all the shots and quality scoring chances theo will have to stop. I for one cannot wait to watch theo just get lit up this season because it is going to happen.

I was still worried everynight when he was playing good the last 1/2 of the season because he is a schizo goalie and so inconsistant. After watching him just get smoked by the wings I knew the bottom was falling out again.

so glad he is gone, I was worried when the avs and theo were thought to be close on a new contract.

We should really thank huet after reading that article above....

Yup...like a christmas tree. It will be fun when the NHL announces the new standards for smaller goalie equipment as well....then we can all think of Theo and his 'Macaulay Caulkin-like' stature and smile.

Starting goaltender for the Washington Capitals was a spot Theodore said he coveted from afar.

"They have the best player in the League, first of all. By watching them the last couple of years, I saw them progress so well," said Theodore, at his introductory press conference yesterday in Arlington, Va. "When I saw things weren't getting better with Cristobal, I knew there was going to be an opening. I didn't want to sign too quickly in Denver. I just waited for the spot, and that was my first choice."

That's a bit of a punk comment right there.....good luck next year jose, im sure your average will be above 3.00 for sure.

It sure is. I've got nothing against Theo for signing elsewhere, but comments like that make me hope he fails for the schadenfreude it'll bring.

He'll have an off year next season, then after play just well enough to get another 4+ million dollar contract for 3 years.
