I think this season is completely understandable even non-hockey wise for Theo since his Father and some Brothers are locked up , his God-father is also locked up and is soon going to become a father , what a bunch of good and bad emotions the same year the NHL becomes quicker and the goalie equipment becomes smaller !!!
and get paid 4.5 million to do it.

Theodore is still one of the best goalies in the league, there's no doubt. it was simply impossible for him to play Montreal anymore, and in Colorado, he's gonna be one of the best goalies in the league, that's for sure.

Huet is a very good goalie, and he's awesome for a goaler that in fact, is just here to wait until Carey Price is ready to play in the big league. With Aebischer as a back-up, we are very well equipped for the present, and for the future.

Agree. A joke of a pool honestly. There are at least 2, if not 3 categories i would think would fit him better instantly than all of thoses. Biais pool.

Overpaid - But he's an elite
An elite having a sub-par (abysimal) year
An elite on the verge to rebound big time
A top 10 goalie that have been affected more than you though about the changes
...

...

Where is the need to compare him with Huet et Aebisher. Talent wise, he's head and shoulders over both. Right now however, he could not fill Huet's jock strap.

He was the best goalie to play for the habs since Patrick Roy.
Anyone want to argue that?

Theodore is overated plain and simple. For those colorado or other fans who come here thinking that theodore is an elite goaltender because hes now in colorado or left the habs, youre no better than habs fans who are trashing theodore because he left montreal.

Theodore is not an elite goaltender and is overated plain and simple. An elite goaltender is a goaltender who make his team finish in the top 5 seeds in his conference year in year out. Theodore is no were near that goaltender. Since theodore was with montreal the habs allways strugle to make the playoffs. that is not an elite goaltender or even a top 10 goaltender.

The media in montreal has a huge influence on fans and theodore was the result of the media making him bigger than what he really is. Theodore dosent even have 500 stats as he has a carrer 141W 158L. Carreer wise abeisher has some better stats than theodore. 89W 58L Theodore is overpaid overated and it wont take long for colorado fans to find out.

The year theodore won the vezina and heart montreal fans fell in love with him. For the fans urond the league who bashes us for overhyping him it was a normal thing at the time. We were a franchise going no were constantly missing the playoffs and needid some one to step up. Montreal is a tough place to play, If you have an amazing year you better keep it up because it wont be long before fans are on youre back. Its the downside for playing on such a prestigus team as the montreal canadiens. You got to be consistant if you want to be a montreal canadien for life something theodore wasent able to do.

He was but that just because we had some awful goatending between him in roy. He dosent come close to roy and comparing theodore to roy is a huge insult towards patrick.

was there another above average goalie between them?? I think all the goalies between them were quite average... Anyway, there's like 6 years between, so there isn't room for many other goalies, so it's just normal for Theodore to be the best since Roy loll
