So that started rumors about a possibility of José getting a call.
Today it was announced on twitter by Renaud Levoie that the Panthers offered José a PTO (professional try out), but he rejected it because he's waiting for a contract:
With Clemmensen out for 3 weeks, Panthers offered a PTO to Jose Theodore today. Theodore rejected the offer. He's waiting for a contract.This doesn't surprise me at all. A "try out" in camp does nothing for him. And it might keep him from the possibility of getting a contract from another team. I find it a bit of an insult that they even contacted him about it myself. Either you want to sign him or not. Don't come asking when you are short a goalie for camp. Nope. But that's just the way I see it. Maybe I'm bitter.
