I want a proven netminder, someone who has been there, done that. Emery made it to the finals, yes...but also played a year in Russia (not an everyday goalie, mind you). I'll say it until I am blue in the face, but I wanted Giggy. The guy has proven hes a consistent goalie and a winner. Two cup appearances and one win. These high risk high reward goalies are not for this team, and we have seen it time and time again, and until that changes its doubtful we will win the whole sha-bang.
Giggy earns 6 million / season is in his 30's and was unseated by Hiller as the starter on the Ducks. Is that really who you covet?
