Dishy Goalie Monday- Jose Theodore

Playoffs are right around the corner and this week we're featuring a none playoff contender, who nonetheless greatly impacted the playoffs.

Jose Theodore is a goaltender for the Minnesota Wild. His 26 save effort against Dallas on April 10, 2011 granted the 2009-2010 Stanley Cup Champion, Chicago Blackhawks a playoff berth.

Theodore is a NHL veteran having played for the Canadiens, Avalanche, Capitals, and most recently the Wild. His indomitable spirit is truly inspiring.

Jose spent two seasons with the Washington Capitals before finding a home in Minnesota, splitting ice time with Niklas Backstrom.

Alot has been written about Jose Theodore. The tragedy he faced with the death of his infant son, being teamless at the end of summer 2010, and his time in Montreal.

Me, well I just want to write about his eyes.

The seriousness of his gaze is mesmerizing.

The Minnesota Wild signed Jose Theodore at the last minute and the decision was sound. While the team is in flux, one thing is for certain, the former Vezina winner has still got it.
