While I am excited about Shea Theodore, I think it's ludicrous how much you are hyping him.
How many NHL games has he played in his career???
More importantly, how many NHL playoff games has he got under his belt?
Well I like the fact that out of everything I said, this was the only argument you could, or decided to make.
I hear what you are saying; small sample size. However, in that small sample size Ive been more impressed with Theodores first games than with Fowlers first games. If Fowler was considered ready, I see no reason why Theodore cant be considered ready.
Did Theodore ever look out of place in a game? Did you ever go "Alright, hes gotta go back down."? Becuase I havent. Right now the track record he has is this... While replacing Fowler in the lineup the defense has looked just a good and the team is scoring more.
And I dont think im hyping him at all. I think Im looking at what hes done to this point and saying "I dont think this team misses a beat with Theodore in for Fowler or Sami."
Playoffs is a different beast. Are you finally coming around tot he idea that they will make the playoffs? Concern is there, of course, but if I look at the trade offs I think the Ducks stand to gain more by bringing in a top 6 forward than what they would lose with Theodore int he lineup for Fowler or Sami.
