Well same goes for Giguere.

I would still think Pitkanen would be in there. They could be out of the playoff picture by the deadline and more importantly, if they don't plan on resigning Pitkanen, they would probably be better off trading him for a package just to have something for the future. I don't see them winning the Cup this year, and yes I know that anything can happen in the playoffs, but still.

For Giguere, notice that there are only two goaltenders on my list. Few are available or worth while and the Leafs have three goalies, two of them much younger.

As for Pitkanen, at the time this blog is written, the Canes are in the tick of a playoffs' race, and he's a key component to that team. Just like I don't see Montreal trading Hamrlik as long as they're in a playoffs' race and yet, I don't see them as a contender even as a fan.

Playoffs dollars are so important for a franchise that I simply couldn't see them trading him at this point. Of course, things may be different in a couple of weeks.

Why not? Seems to me that he's done alright in the playoffs' career-wise?
