I know these are normally tough shots to save, but it's even worse for Giguere with his narrow butterfly and average lateral movement.
If that were so easy, there would be no butterfly goalies left.
It reminds me of a time when a guy criticized DP when he was at the top of the game (not mr. brittle bones). Said something like, "if you one-time a cross-ice pass at the circles, it beats him every time."
If this is true, I'd say the D had a pretty bad game.
As for Giggy, I'd have the Isles give up #37 for him. It'll fit with my plan of making the '11 playoffs. But with his son's eye condition and his NMC, it's unlikely to be waived. So it's moot.
(cowers and waits for isles fans screaming about "mortgaging the future" giving up a 2nd round pick <whoa!> and that it's an irresoponsible use of wangbucks, also duck's fans saying that that's not enough value)
