Miami Herald Article about José Signing

For those interested, @onfrozenpond is the Panthers' beat writer on Twitter (George Richards.) (And I already tweeted him that he put the wrong pronunciation of Theodore. Dear God, here we go again.)
Here's his first article about José

The Tomas Vokoun Era Ends: Florida Panthers Sign Jose Theodore

Tomas Vokoun opted for free agency on Friday at noon and the Panthers quickly pounced on a replacement.

Jose Theodore, who went 15-11-3 with the Wild last season, signed a two-year deal worth $1.5 million per season.

With this goalie tandem, the Panthers are going cheap in net.

Theodore -- he pronunces his name Joe-Zay Tee-o-dore -- and Scott Clemmensen will make $3 million between them next season. Clemmensen's cap hit is $1.2 million, but he'll be paid $1.5 million.
Tomas Vokoun made $5.7 million last year all by himself.

Theodore spent nine seasons with the Montreal Canadiens before going to Colorado. Theodore also was with division rival Washington for two seasons before going to the Wild last year.

He's definetely been around.

More as we go.
