Where's that poster who continually insisted that Montreal made a boneheaded move in letting Brisebois go, just because he had a good start?

Unrelated to the thread's purpose, but oh well. Like McPhee, I'm not much of a sign guy...

It depends if you like Theodore/Brisebois or not too.

Yes, you can blame him in part for the losses to Tampa Bay and Carolina. Not saying it was all his fault, but he certainly didn't come up big for us ever.
I really don't see how in 2001-2002 he wasn't the main reason we won, he carried that team on his fu**ing back into the playoffs and through the Bruins' series. Man we were completly outclassed. Don't even try to say it was his fault against the Canes, he facing 40+ shots on average and they weren't perimeter shots like Huet faced yesterday. Sure 2 years ago he wasn't all that but he was competent.

It's just hate to say he never came up big for us because he did, he was inconsistent but he did deliver, just not lately. I'm not even a Theo fan, he was overpaid and overrated but he was a top 10 goalie and when he was good with us, he was elite.

I wasn't clear in saying he never came up big for us; I don't mean ever ever, I was specifically referring to in those two second round matchups. Again, I don't hate Jose. He was incredible in 2001-2002, good in 2003-2004, and though he had a rough year in Montreal this year, is still a capable #1 in the league. But to say he was so great for us in the playoffs, as many do, is IMO a big exaggeration. He was a normal goalie. An Emery, or a Grahame. He was no playoff performer.

It doesn't matter: they went to the Jacques Demers school of reading.

Actually, I like the "we're even" idea.

That I agree more with, he wasn't so great, he was just great at times.

Would u want to write something in french for them instead?

I agree with you. Theo wasn't excellent in either of those playoff series.
He did play well though against the Bruins but I believe the reason we won was mostly because of a team effort.

Any idea when you'll make it ? Then we'll know how much time we have to become better people. If I was a hockey player, I wouldn't vacation in Latvia, no senses of humour. Oops, damnitt, I've stereotyped and judged a whole country by one silly poster. My bad. Sorry. Just look away.

Without Theodore, you don't pass the first round in 2002, and possibly in 2004. He was the key player in defeating the Bruins in the playoffs.

2002 - key players were Koivu and Zednik
2004 - key players were Koivu and Kovalev - koivu tied a team record for points in a playoff series.

2002- he was awsome after Zednik got hurt no question but that was only two games

2004- He was average to awful throughout the the whole series except for game 7

Ohhh...BALOGNA!!!
Montreal is the best place to play by far. The fans are nuts about the hockey team and all the tradition that goes with it. If you're a pro player and can't handle a little criticism, then you don't belong in Montreal or the whole league for that matter.
The way I look at it, the fans are who buys the tickets to help pay the players salaries, I don't think it is too much for them to ask for the players to try their hardest and to play at the professional level. They booed Breeze-by because he was a brutal player that made more mistakes then anyone else in the league on a regular basis and they run Theodore out of town because he was making $5 million a year and wasn't playing well enough to earn $100 a game.
If I was asked to play in any city in the league, I would pick Montreal...nobodys got you back like a happy Habs fan!!!

Yup, as they say, montreal fans are with you, win or tie as long as you don't tie too often.
