So Montreal Canadien goalie Jose Theodore is having a bad season. Bad enough, in fact, that he’s now backing up his back-up, Jeff Hackett. Despite this goalie controversy, Montreal is feeling no need to tighten up their defense. That’s how they allowed Ottawa 45 shots in one game. So with all this going on, what’s a coach to do? If you’re Michel Therrien, you throw another goalie into the mix. The Habs have recalled goalie Mathieu Garon from Hamilton.
I suppose it’s possible that Hackett is being showcased to move via a trade, but who’s going to take him? Toronto could use him, but it’s still kind of early to give up on Eddie Belfour.
