Jose Theodore's Goal

drew0118toon.gif

We all watched Patrick Roy... Jose Theodore is no Patrick Roy.
He's a bust and a very expensive one at that. It's too bad he's dragging the Avs down. They could certainly use his salary for something other than an overpaid goalie.

I'll be taking Friday off so be sure to look Saturday for a new cartoon.

    It's a shame you have to protray Theodore as being a jerk when in reality he has been nothing but a great teammate, in spite of not playing. His contract is the problem, yes, but not his attitude. By all accounts, he works his butt off every day and he does everything he can to support Peter Budaj (Budaj even credits Theodore with the advice that has helped him win in the shootout). They have a great relationship, because Theodore has not let his on-ice struggles affect his attitude, work ethic, or support for his teammates. Too bad you have to paint him pretty much exactly opposite of this.

    Ho hum, another negative cartoon about the Avs from Drew. God forbid you ever say anything positive, like about the bright young stars on this team - Stastny, Wolski, Budaj.

    I like how Drew forgets all of the bad cartoons he drew about Patrick Roy. The one that immediately comes to mind is when he portrayed Roy as a snail after game 5 of the 2001 Stanley Cup Finals.

    This is the second incident in Denver sports like this. The first being Jake Plummer's benching, and give the dude credit for the way he handled it. Theo is doing the same with "Boots".

    As far as the cartoon, all I can say is free speech man...free speech!!!

    I think the idea is more to show that the Avs have no problem letting the guy making the money, sit on the bench.

    Drew is exactly spot on. The Avs didn't trade Abby for Theodore so that Theodore could be a $5Million goaltender coach for Budaj. He was traded for because Pierre Lacroix was in love with French-Canadian goalies that previously played for Montreal. He was trying to catch lightning in a bottle one too many times and he got torched on this deal. Unfortunetly for the Avs, Budaj is not the long term answer either. He's not doing badly, but he is not going to lead this team to the playoffs, much less the Stanley Cup. Anyone check the standings lately? The Avs are flirting with .500. They are on the outside, looking in.

    Tom-

    I think you're dead on about why Theodore is here, but you lost it at Budaj.

    I don't know if Budaj is a stanley cup winning goalie, but rest assured, he is the reason we're even flirting with .500

    I agree, we're on the outside looking in, but the reason we are even looking at this point is because of Budaj. If we only had Theodore, we wouldn't even be looking in.

    Budaj is far down the list of concerns with this team. We need defensemen to stay healthy, and some consistent scoring. If Budaj had that, I would really like to see what the AVS could do.

    Theo was never "all that" anyhow.
    Why are people so shocked by his lack of pure talent and cosistent play?
    He was "in the zone" for a few months ONLY in Montreal.
    Here in Montreal, he walked the streets like he was God.
    When clubbing, same thing.

    It was great to see him go, and let it be known, there is only 1 Patrick Roy!

    What were the Avs thinking.

    Good Luck to Joe and the boys!

    its obvious that theodore will never be a "patrick roy" but i think he needs someone to just clarify to him that he is NOT what he is getting paid for...why not reduce his pay and see what happens?

    Ha I"d like to see you come up with something negative to draw about Theo this year. Last game stopped 38/40 shots when we got outshot 40-17 and helped us take the series lead and made some AMAZING stops. Good luck with that.
