While some look at Jose Theodore‘s recovery window from a torn groin muscle as four-to-six weeks, an update from RDS’ Renaud Lavoie spins it another way: the 36-year-old goalie hopes to play two or three more games this season.
It’s easy to look at that as a wasteful goal considering his injury – especially if the team’s fate doesn’t change in the next month or so.
From Theodore’s perspective, it makes perfect sense, though.
His contract runs out after this season, so if he wants to stay in the NHL, he might be forced to prove that he’s healthy enough to play. Considering the fact that surgery was at least a consideration following that torn groin muscle, it might be a hard sell.
Still, he’s quietly put together decent work here and there as a backup and occasional spot starter, so he has at least a shot at sticking around – if he can prove to a team that he’s healthy enough to do so.

All Minny in this one, as we said earlier.

Timing of the goal couldn’t have been better for San Jose.

Boston wins it on an odd goal.

All Minny through two – except on the score board.

Out of his control, however.

It’s due to flu-like symptoms for Detroit’s normal starter.

He’s glad the former got some playoff reps, though.

He sure looked yippy last night night in Columbus.
