I'd want to see them build up their d before giving up on anderson. A lot of our problems stem from havin no physical play in our own end and getting bullied in front of our own net. I'd rather seem them make a move for seabrook jbo or borque before changin up the goaltending. Anderson was beautiful for us last year and I don't see them givin up on him just yet, budaj has also had some good games for us.

Just a freaking name. He is cheap because he does not have it anymore. Get real.

dream on. He is NOT WORTH 2nd or 3rd and forget about 1st!!!

%899, missed 11 games because of groin injury and makes 6M. Are you freaking kidding me?
clearly you cant read.

If he is the starting goalie and helps the team all the way to the finals. Im sure a team like Philly wouldnt mind giving up a 2nd.

If he doesn't play, or the team doesnt go far; than the team only has to pay a 3rd.

Its more of protection for the play-off team, and benefits for the leafs; if he plays well.

He did not help Ducks last season, he did not help Leafs this season. He has a HUGE cap hit and I am sure teams lineup to add 6M in TRASH at the dead line or during mid season! Get a clue.

That's not what he said. There would be like 1/3 of a season left, so the team getting him would not be on the hook for the full $6M.

He basically had 2 good playoff years a while ago. A lot of things changed since that. BIG DEAL.

He hasn't had a good playoff since 2006-2007, there has been a lot of bad hockey played by Giggy since then. He was once a very good playoff goalie, but time has a way of changing things

I can see a playoff team agreeing to something like that. Losing the higher pick would be worth it, if Giguere is part of the success.
I could see that, much similar to langenbrunner deal to dallas, pick raises depending on how far the team makes in the playoffs.

Giguere is still a great goalie. His biggest weakness is breakaways and shootouts, which because rarer and impossible in the playoffs.

In terms of playing in a game, Giguere is still very good.

Do you think Detroit would prefer to a move a pick or a player, is there someone Detroit would like to move?

Giggy's contract will have approximately 1.5 million left on it at the deadline, the Flyers have $400,000 ish space available. Do you actually believe that they would be willing to move another $1 million in prorated salary so they can add Giggy at the deadline?

Realistically Colorado and Atlanta are the only teams with space, and playoff potential, but Giggy isn't enough of an upgrade to Chris Mason to justify the expense and I question if the Avs would consider him the solution to their goals against issues.

I wasnt saying that the Flyers should or will do it.
Simply responding to the other poster about Giguere not being worth anything. yet, if he plays well and somewhat carries a team; he would be worth the upgraded pick.

He is a shadow of his former self but is still a veteran and been the distance before. If he goes on a heater, he's a better option going into the post-season than Boob or Bob

Yay. Only thing going for his trade value is an expiring contract. Perhaps his playoff pedigree. Not sure there would be a lot of teams banging on the door though. Could make sense for a team like Phoenix.

Maybe something like Stempniak and LaBarbera?

Toronto gets a goalie to mingle with Reimer and Gustaffson that is a UFA at season's end, and they get Stempniak back, signed at a reasonable rate through next year.

Phoenix cuts Stempniak's salary for next year (1.9), they need to start making some room for their younger guys. They gut Giguere for insurance through the playoffs and let him and his contract walk. Phoenix takes on a bit of salary for the remainder of the season, but it allows them to cut a bit more next season.

Vokoun is in talks with Florida right now about a possible extension, so he might off the market by the deadline.

Based on what because he had 2 good playoff seasons behind strong teams? If any goalie goes ona heater they can be good.

He is not better option. Screw that.

You guys are going to feel like mighty large 'tards when Giguere lands his next starting job. When will you ever learn to not bet against professional athletes, especially the humble, accomplished and resilient variety?
