Theo does seem to a be perturbed via CapsInsider, heh.
It's a breakthrough for Neuvirth, who has won two in a row and is starting to look like the top-notch prospect the Caps consider him to be. But, as you might imagine, not everyone is happy about Coach Bruce Boudreau's decision.
Jose Theodore snapped his stick blade when he came off the ice and then offered, "I just work here" as he pulled off his pads. The veteran has not played since a 3-2 loss in Vancouver eight days ago, but insisted that he's not hurt and is ready to go.
I think we've got a fully fledged goalie controversy...
And we can count on TEB, who proudly stated that his job was to sell newspapers, to fan flames, stir pots and filter events and quotes to advance his own agenda. I guess he is bored with identifying and bird dogging Cap injury specifics so that our opponents know how to hammer our players.
Doesnt Theo know we cant possibly win with the kids between the pipes?! Maybe he will realize that some may think that we cant win with him either.
Regardless, I am very happy we are beginning to see signs of passing of the torch. Neuvy has earned a look, tough sheet Theo. UFAJT will bail to sign a fat contract at year end if we start him tonight, or not.
Last year should have been proof to all that we may need a young goalie to step up to the plate near the end of the year. Do those that dont want Neuvy to start, oppose Varly getting time last spring? I for one wanted to get him into a lot more games in case we needed him. Turns out we did, and he only had 4 games under his belt. I think its very important to groom Neuvy just in case he gets the call. Varly is injured now, all the more reason to get MN a solid dose of NHL speed.
