Maybe Theodore should just worry about playing hockey

In response to this comment on Tuesday by Tomas Plekanec, “It’s not as though we are facing (Martin) Brodeur or (Ryan) Miller,” Plekanec told La Presse. “They don’t have a dominant goaltender. When you look at the goaltending matchup in this series it favours our team. I just believe that our goaltending is more solid than theirs.”, Jose Theodore, the Capitals’ goalie said, “Tomas who? Jagr?” [Jose] Theodore said, referring to five-time scoring champion Jaromir Jagr, Plekanec’s Olympic teammate with the Czech Republic. “Oh, Plekanec, okay. I thought you meant Jagr.”
Well, guess who scored the overtime winner for Montreal in Game 1 of their series last night?
Anyone that thinks we here in Pittsburgh started to panic after our first game should read this – www.japersrink.com– to see how badly the folks in Washington are panicking after last night. Occasionally bad things do happen to bad people.

    One of the more interesting pieces was by a WaPo columist who claimed that Ted Leonsis puts his nose in the middle of Al Ovetjkin’s style by telling him in so many words to slow down his game.
    Leonsis must see the hitting and the rover-style being a little risky and probably see’s a major injury and another contract being paid without a performer on the ice—- aka Jagr.

    What’s going on is that they have a star player and can’t control him—- McPhee and their coach at the time (Hanlon) recruit Kolzig and the three of them take him to task in the paper—- they want him to play with more grit—- then it’s one after another attempting to change his game leading to Leonsis who can’t stopped sticking his nose into his “investment” kind of asking him to play with less grit—- in all seriousness, this guy gets more messages in a bottle from management than the Atlantic Ocean. No wonder he’s so screwed up. In about another year he may be “dying alive”… Capital’s NATION is in panic mode after one loss.
