In Case you Missed it: Habs News and Blogger Views for Aug 20 2009

Leading off, my heart-felt condolences to the family of former Canadiens goaltender Jose Theodore.

There was sad news earlier today that the Vezina and Hart Trophy winner’s two-month old son has died.

The Washington Post’s Tarik-El Bashir was one of the first to break the story.

Theodore’s sister-in-law, Veronique Cloutier, confirmed the reports this afternoon on her Montreal radio program. Causes of the infants death are unknown.

Our thought are with Jose, wife Stephanie and their, three-year-old, daughter Romy at this time.


I came across a couple stories, from the last few days, on Canadiens enforcer Georges Laraque.

Mark Spector (Sportsnet) talked to the big guy about the new roster changes for the upcoming season. Laraque passes on some advice for the likes of newcomers Brain Gionta, Mike Cammalleri, etc.

Second was a piece from Derek van Diest (Edmonton Sun) on Laraque working out with Oilers tough-guys Zack Stortini and Steve MacIntyre.


Jason Alexander (  posts on and asks, “Are they French enough?”

Topham from Lions in Winter on his contributions to The 2009 Score Sports Forecaster.

A couple days old, but well worth mentioning Dennis Kane’s talk with former Canadiens d-man Terry Harper. reports that Henri “Pocket Rocket” Richard will be doing an autograph signing on Saturday in Dollard des Ormeaux.
