Burke & Leafs to target Giguere?

This is from our board (Leafs)

Just wanted to know what Duck fans feel Giguere's value is, and what players it would take for a trade to happen.

I personally like Giggy, but feel he is overpaid, and if a trade happened Toronto would have to send Toskala back.

What type of players do you guys think gets moved if Toronto takes on Giguere?

Burke likes Gigučre?

It's very rare that I deal with rumors of transactions on this site, but my source has never failed so far, so I venture. In the worst case, I will lose a few minutes to analyze this rumor, which is full of good sense.

Jean-Sébastien Gigučre, the Anaheim Ducks should be traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs when the season is finished. The deal is already closer it seems. However, I do not know which player the Leafs will play in sunny California. Probably salvage a choice if you want my opinion.

Gigučre has a contract guaranteeing him a salary of 6 million next season and say that the GM of the Ducks does not have much leeway

Since Giguere is on a NTC I have never thought of it much... His value should be atleast somewhat good still as he only had one bad season and has had lots of great seasons before that.

Because of this, I can't put a finger on what his value might be, but the Ducks are in need for a 2nd line LW and a 2nd line center. The Ducks might be interested in a deal including Matt Stajan.

I don't think that they would consider Giguere until the Gustavsson thing is all finished up, or maybe he would be a good mentor?

Hasek

Ward, Zetterberg to name a few.

He's good, but he's overpaid.

Hasek never won the Conn Smyth but he did sign the biggest goalie contract in history (up until that point in time) in Buffalo.

Ward is RFA and will be making at least as much as Giguere when he is extended. Zetterberg makes more than Giguere with his new extension.

Dont forget Moen. May and Nonis will meet them at the airport and show them around town.

You guys make a great farm team!

I hope not, I think Giggy is a top 5 goalie in the game when he's on but we are rebuilding, having Giggy will make us better but still not enough to get us into the playoffs, besides he's a UFA next year.

I was joking about Hasak ..

But when Ward and Zetts won the CS they made less...that was my point.

When Giggy recieved his contract he was worth it, and he may be again, but his trade value has dropped because of this years performance.

I think we have to at least send Toskala back...if we take on JS-G

We are the leafs, we are not rebuilding...there is no such thing in Toronto.

Only if the Leafs arent able to sign Gusto.

And I say that because I know that Toronto wants to be active in free agency, and by the looks of it, Burke would like to make the playoffs next year. I believe we fans wont put any real pressure on the team to make the playoffs, but if they did it will be great for the kids development, and if they dont, next year's draft is on par with this years. Win win !

you can have them!!! except leave us allaire... you can have the headstrong blowhard, the overpaid (although skilled) goalie, and the as probably the only ducks fan whos sees pahlsson for what he really is, the most overrated defensive forward in this league... one good season and he's suddenly Jesus Christ.

KEEP THEM!

farm team? sorry pal it seems like BURKE is just licking our table scraps off the floor under the dinnertable. you guys really want moen too?!?!

i must say as much as i hate the leafs, i feel bad for you guys and must give you this warning..... THESE PLAYERS ARE ENTIRELY OVERRATED!!!

moen could be a good 4th line player, but burke will probably pay him 2Million a year.

Well if anyone knows this it's Burke. I can't see him signing guys who aren't going to make an impact

And yes, as someone mentionned, Burke fully intends on being in the playoffs next season and he has the cap room to do it.

look, i am around many many fellow ducks fans constantly... and i know many many of them all have creepy crushes on pahlsson... the fact is,

he HASNT played good for the past 2 seasons... actually i think he was pretty BAD the past 2 seasons.
the year they won the cup he looked unbelievable. the year before,(1st post lockout) was pretty good, but was nothing to rave over.

the fact that everyone said the pahlsson trade was a BAD TRADE, makes me believe that alot of our fans dont understand players. his last GOOD season was a while ago, get over it, KEEP HIM!

this does make alot of sense to me...i remember during the playoffs the broadcasters would say giggy and allaire are really tight so if he might have his NTC to stay with allaire but doesnt his kid have lik medical problems and need to stay in the anahiem area?
