Don’t be so obsessed with Beauchemin level of play. He is very good dman, but he also has learned a lot from Niedermayer. He would not have been so dominating in Montreal or in Columbus without Scott.
But his aggressiveness and ability to make open ice hits like before the first goal are still amazing and Scotty did not teach him that for sure.
BTW, Theo looks horrible once again. I guess he simply ran out of luck in the second period. Horrendous rebound control during the first two periods.
theo plays one decent game and there all saying he is back...
i dont care 5 million dollar goalies supposed to be able to carry the team .
Doug, you're not nice.... He's playing better than he was with us, it's not hard you'll say and you would be right on, but he will never be the guy he used to be in the old NHL, anyway I may be wrong, but that's what I think.
But something in his favor, and I know it's only one game, but who would take in your team today, Emery or Theo??? Gerber or Theo??? Legacé? Turco? Esche? Aubin? Grahame? Khabibulin and his contract? Cloutier? Auld?
There's so much crappiness nowadays that even him could be better than most of these goalies. Doesn't justify this 4.5 going 5.5. and 6 but at 3 of 3.5, he would be a good investment I think......
