Its time to end Jose "contract year only" Threeormore's NHL career and just stick this loser in Hershey. The league as a whole will be better without him in it.

Yeah just keep coughing up the puck in our zone. That's a great idea.

Big step back for this team. Blown out by the Flyers and not even playing against the Rangers.

I feel terrible for Theo, it's not like he's playing poorly on purpose. He's played almost 20 games now though - I think he's been given more than enough opportunities.

You could tell this wasn't going to be a good game when, in the first five minutes, the Caps had three icing calls against them and NY was able to wash out one icing against them.

Why do you feel terrible for him? He's one of the most over paid players in the league... no need to feel sorry, hes a lucky SOB.

Looking at the contract's handed out to two nothing in Nylander and Threeormore, how do you allow McPhee to come back and keep handing out more contracts?

Caps take offensive zone PP penalty.

Shooting wide.

Dumb and undisciplined is their Achille's Heel.

He's given up 7 goals in his last 31 minutes of ice time. I feel bad for him but I feel worse for the Caps. Call up Varley and put Theo on waivers.

because he's built an extremely successful team from the ground up in 3 seasons?

He sucks in free agency and for the most part with non-lottery draft picks.

I would have to say that Theo's roster spot is in jeopardy.

Gimme a break! Try looking at those contracts in context please. Huet walked. If he hadn't signed anyone people would be calling for his head. He took a chance on the best goalie available. It isn't panning out but at least it's a short contract.

We got Nylander when we had a HUGE need for centers. No Feds and no Backs at that point. Nylander was fairly highly sought after.

A little context is key. GMGM is doing a great job with this team and I, for one, hope he stays.

The way people panic and point fingers at the drop of a hat really amazes me. Try being objective instead of just throwing out one of the oft-used "sky is falling" type of posts without even thinking about it.

Its not the end of the world, but I think it could be the end for Theodore. I suspect that this was his chance to earn some playing time back. He failed. Johnson is hurt and shouldnt be playing.
