  • Theodore out with Injury

    Jose Theodore has been playing with a groin injury since the Tampa Bay game on November 8th. Theodore did not start last game against the Panthers and won’t start tommorow in New Jersey. Theo has been under fire for a slow start this season despite having 10 victories.

    It’s too early to say how serious this is but should Theo miss 2-3 games Yann Danis is ready to go and Cristobal Huet appears healthy as well. Theo haters got their wish, we’ll see how it pans out.

    Jan Bulis will make his return Friday but Radek Bonk is still not ready to go.

  • Todd Marchant won’t be a Canadien


    A lot of bogus rumors floating around Montreal lately. The newest is that Todd Marchant who was waived by the Columbus Blue Jackets to make room for Sergei Fedorov – will become a Hab.

    Why? Just because a player’s last name can be pronounced in French doesn’t mean he is coming to the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens don’t need any players like Todd Marchant. Small, speedy – we have plenty. The biggest reason however? $2.47 Million for this year, next year, and then $2.66 Million for the 3rd. Who the hell negotiated this guys contract? Michael Ryder only makes 1 million! I think he is highly overpaid and I’m sure most GMs will think the same. I expect him to clear waivers and go to the minors. Someone can pick him up closer to the playoffs but it looks like Todd’s contract came back to haunt him.
