Theodore Salute

via the CP,
The Canadiens' training camp had not even officially started when goaltender Jose Theodore was embroiled in his first mini-controversy. TV station TQS played and replayed tape of Theodore making a rude gesture, pointing the middle fingers of each hand, during a photo shoot at the Bell Centre on Tuesday. The picture also appeared in local newspapers yesterday. While it cast the Canadiens' highest-paid player in a negative light, Theodore said it was a playful gesture made after team photographer Bob Fisher asked him to do something with his two hands. He said he was only trying to make the photographer laugh. "It was a fun day for everybody and the media were following us around, which is good," said Theodore. "It was funny at the moment, but the way it came out in the media wasn't fair. "Bob Fisher is a guy I've done pictures with for 10 years." Le Journal de Montreal called it "a tempest in a teapot." But Theodore worried it would be viewed around the NHL as one more instance of the local media blowing incidents out of proportion and may put players off playing for Montreal. "I'm sure players around the league will see that," he said. "That's why we have some players who would rather sign somewhere else."
