Jose Theodore Appears Unlikely To Return To Capitals Next Season

It was not a good end of the season for Jose Theodore. The veteran goalie was benched in the playoffs for Semyon Varlamov after two shaky games in the Capitals' first-round series against the Canadiens. Now, Theodore is a free agent, and it appears he's no longer in the Capitals' plans.

The Washington Post's Tarik El-Bashir talked to Theodore's agent, who said the Capitals have yet to even discuss a contract extension with his client.

The agent for goaltender Jose Theodore, who just completed his second season in Washington, said there have been no discussions regarding an extension for the 33-year-old unrestricted free agent to be.

"They haven't communicated with me at all," Don Meehan said this morning from his Toronto area office. 

Theodore finished 30-7-7 this season amid difficult circumstances after the death of his infant son in November, but at his age and with Varlamov's emergence, it's not a surprise that the Capitals seem to be moving on.
