With Huet Out of Reach, Caps Snag Theodore

TSN is reporting that Jose Theodore is now a member of the Washington Capitals. It’s a two-year contract for $9 million.

Going into the offseason, the Washington Capitals were facing several challenges. Challenge #1 was re-signing defenseman Mike Green. That mission was accomplished earlier today when he came to terms with the team on a four-year contract. Challenge #2 was getting Cristobal Huet, who was acquired from Montreal at the trade deadline for a second round draft pick in 2009, re-signed. It was Huet, as most folks will recall, whose incredible play down the stretch enabled him to displace long-time franchise stalwart Olie Kolzig (now off to Tampa Bay) and helped the team qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in five seasons.

Last Friday Huet’s agent, Stephen Bartlett, told me that while his client was comfortable with the term of the contract the Capitals had put on the table, the money was a sticking point. Yesterday, Bartlett told Corey Masisack of that Huet was prepared to wait until today to see what the market had to offer. For more details, check out Capitals Insider, where word is already out that Huet is off to Chicago for four years at $5.6 million per season.
