Washington Was Theodore’s First Choice

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,

“Alex Ovechkin just called me to say we have a great group of guys,” Théodore said during his introductory news conference yesterday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. “We like to have fun, win and work hard. When he said that, I knew I made the right choice.”

Théodore also revealed that he delayed re-signing with the Colorado Avalanche because he suspected that Cristobal Huet might not return to Washington. When Huet bolted to the Chicago Blackhawks, Theodore quickly agreed to a two-year, $9 million contract on July 1.
