Blame The Equipment

from Sportsnet,
Star netminder Jose Theodore has been at the centre of the storm surrounding the Habs. ...Sources told Sportsnet the meeting stemmed from concern Canadiens management had with Theodore's off-season equipment change. Gainey and Melanson asserted the former Vezina and Hart Trophy winner was giving up too many rebounds and was struggling with his new glove. It is alleged Theodore felt pressure to rethink his three-year endorsement deal and consider going back to his old equipment, or try a new company. Sources also said with his confidence already somewhat rattled, Theodore left the meeting unhappy with the message he had been given and that he was prepared to accept a trade rather than abandon a company he had chosen to work with.
