Yeah, it's too bad the season ends after five games. If Theodore had something along the lines of 77 more he might've been able to pull up his game.I said Theodore would blow it. One of the Sportsnet.ca headlines is "Avs must work through Theodore's slump".
The fifth goal was even worse, Theodore wasn't even within twenty feet of the net.He blew last night against Chicago. Martin Lapointe's game winning goal qualifies as the softest goal ever.
Lol, Phish, you are getting pretty sarcastic. Anyways, everyone's allowed a bad game. Theo has only had two of those. Remember Vokoun's first two starts this year? Everyone's just ragging on him because he had a bad year last year, so automatically they assume that he's back to his bad self.Yeah, it's too bad the season ends after five games.

You are aware that that is a video of some guy at the Oilers home opener right Kermit?He's not bad. Sure he had a bad season last year, everbody has a bad season once in a while. Okay everyoine is an overstatement. A few people did. But I mean, Look at this video from a few years ago. This isn't proving that he is good, but he is. I think on the saves in the video, he was extremely lucky. Theo, is a great goalie, and He'll show everyone that we won that trade.

He cant win....Aebischer's salary is way below Theo,s and he is able to pull better numbers....and even if the stats were equal....Montreal still would get the edge since it cost them cheaper having Aebischer and Huet together than having just TheoHe's not bad.

I agree. If we are going to have a mediocre season, play Budaj, he could use the experience, because sooner or later in the next couple years, he will be the starter. He might has well get the experience now. Theo had a chance to proove that he was not a one season wonder, I don't think that chance is gone; yet. I think that we'll need spectacular play from our goaltenders in order to good. Play Budaj and let him get experience, then play Theo and let us loose games. When we play Budaj, we have a shot of winning. Sure he let's in weak goals, but then so does every goalie. But Theo just plain out looses games for us.As an Av's fan I have to speak my opinion on this. Theo did have a chance at a fresh start. Now well into the season all he has proved, except in a few showings, is that he is a multi-million dollar shooter tutor. If we are to have a mediocre season we might as well let Budaj get the experience. Budaj will more than likely step up and play the way he can given the chance.
Well and the fact that Lacroix didn't make that trade...I think Montreal won the trade so far, Abby is posting similar numbers while we have him for 1.9 million. And that money we got from trading Theo helped us to re-sign Huet, who is currently leading the Nhl in sv% and GAA. Since the Avs are my second favorite team, I want them to do well, but with Theo in net I doubt they could go far, and sadly in the past few years Lacroix made some bad trades, such as the Drury trade, Morris-Ballard trade, and recently the Abby trade(didn't count the Tanguay trade since we haven't seem Leopold yet). And that sucks for the Avs since Theo makes 5.5 this year and 6 the next. With that money they could have gone out and get the D-men they need so bad.
Goaltending, just like last season until January and after Aebi was traded, is the missing link and the one part of our game that is not solid. We had last game, until Theo screwed it up for us. Both goalies have solid games everyonce in a while, but they don't have that consistently.
So am I. We got him for a reson, and he is on the sidelines hurt. When is he coming back we could use him.Well and the fact that Lacroix didn't make that trade...
Leopold has yet to play, and I'm getting pissed about it. We have yet to win three games in a row, and I'm getting pissed about that, because we have no consistency.
Yeah, he was the gm during the trade...so...assuming that he was the one that made it.“Jordan is a solid defenseman and a very good skater,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. “He is a former Hobey Baker Award winner that has great playmaking abilities at both ends of the ice. He is only 25 years-old and has a bright future ahead of him.”
“Moreover, we are hopeful that this year’s second-round draft pick will become an Avalanche player in the near future,” added Giguere.
