Yvon Pednault Article on Untouchables and 1 year.

Why Théo? Yvon Pedneault

Saturday May 8 2004 - THERE he has irreproachable? The question was interesting and, visibly, Bobsled Gainey not s’attendait to this qu’on l’invite to do a quick and especially public evaluation of his personnel.

Irreproachable?

« Eh, I would say that yes… » was the response.

But, this response hides also a « no ». In no moment, the general director of the Canadian risky n’a to raise a name. Not the one of Saku Koivu. Not the one of José Théodore. An alone sentence on the subject of the custodian: « he been perfect? No. In this case, we no more!. »

If the Oilers d’Edmonton already exchanged the better player of the planet to l’époque, the term « irreproachable » should be scratched vocabulary of the world of the sport. L’argent, the wage masses, the statute of the autonomous player without restriction did in to go out that l’athlète has clearly more liberty, it now can choose his destination, it does not live anymore in a climate d’appartenance.

Here that rule the case Théodore comparatively to the evasive response of Gainey.

Because qu’il is necessary well to talk about Théodore. You pronounce yourself aujourd’hui by the bias d’un poll Light & Light that we publish in our orderlies aujourd’hui. The question: has one to exchange or keep Théodore?

Why Théodore? Because, since l’élimination of the Tricolore in front of the Lightning of Tampa Bay, it seems to be the pointed player of the finger. One forgets that the Canadian lost in front of a better formation, a team more talentueuse, quicker and more creative.

On the other hand, one n’est all d’accord on a point. Théodore n’a not dominating summer during the series éliminatoires. In any case, its benefits could not marry themselves to the exploits of Evgeny Nabokov, or again to those of Mikka Kiprusoff, or well to the exploits of Nikolai Khabibulin.

L’élite of the circuit

But, before of him to launch the rock, it would be necessary anyway to recognize qu’il belongs to l’élite of the custodians of l’Association is. Qu’il is necessary a custodian of first value to attain the series éliminatoires especially in a league that attained his first objective, c’est-à-dire to create a parity despite l’écart that separates the rich teams of the formations of small market.

Théodore was l’un of the big craftsmen of l’étonnante season of the Canadian. It was the one that gave to his team a luck to win to every game, a quality that l’on strictly rediscovers with the custodians talentueux, with the custodians that do not fear to challenge l’adversaire and that, very often, intimidate l’adversaire.

Qu’il knew, during spring tournament, a performance in déca of the standard qu’il had established, two years ago, standard, qu’il does not be necessary s’en to hide, pulled sometimes science fiction, true c’est. But is it the first one to live such a experience?

Nikolai Khabibulin had lost his post to John Grahame, last l’an, at the time of the second round one series éliminatoires. Now, it presents this morning an inferior average to a goal by game. The Devils of the New Jersey did they have exchanged Martin Brodeur, in 1996 then qu’ils had spoiled the series éliminatoires, a year after to have won the cutting Stanley? Do you believe that the name of Brodeur will be on the market of the transactions because the Devils were eliminated in round first and that Brodeur n’a been not as brilliant as d’habitude? J’en doubts. One also could add as Patrick Roy also knew for him difficult moments during certain series for more better to rebound l’année following.

Not to l’abri

Théodore n’est not an irreproachable one and it n’est not to l’abri d’un change setting. Bobsled Gainey never will refuse an offer qu’il judges essential. Nevertheless, that n’enlève nothing to the statute of the custodian. It is, jusqu’à proof of the opposite, one of the elements more important in the successes dune organization as the one of the Canadian. All during the calendar, it played with determination, it maintained s’est among the better ones of his profession, it did Canadian an improved team and a formation able to compete with most of the teams of the circuit. All that despite events that have perturbed passablement his family and its friends. Without forgetting l’affaire Guy Cloutier in season end.

There is a factor nevertheless qu’on seems to forget. Before judging the performances of the custodian according to the series éliminatoires, n’est-it not more important to recognize than, without Théodore, the Tricolore probably would have spoiled the appointment d’avril?

A year in the American League

The debate is launched. Is this the professional hockey that has just banished Alexander Perezhogin or strictly the American League? In the office national League, to Toronto, one is carried to believe that if the Russian player won a spot uniform with the Canadiens, in next September, it not said that they will forbid for him to participate in the activities of his team. A story to watch...

I think they are just posturing to reduce Theodore's contract next year.

broduer wins 30-50 cause he is playing in NJ. if he was playing in MTL, he wouldnt be that good.

everyone praises him about how many wins he has but he wouldnt win like this anywhere else.

Brodeur is obvisouly good but you also have to look at the team he's playing for. I am not saying he isn't good. He is great but in my mind, he is the 2nd best goalie in the league right now behind Roberto Luongo and he showed some very very weak playoffs without Scott Stevens..

Another intersting part of the thread:

A year in the American League

The debate is launched. Is this the professional hockey that has just banished Alexander Perezhogin or strictly the American League?

That's perhaps the funniest translation ever. I was completely lost.
