I wouldn't want him as the stick boy if it means he might get to raise the cup.

Burke on Hacksaw's Show just now...

I listened to Burke be interviewed on Hacksaw just now. I'm a Kings fan here, not an ounce of me is in favor of the Ducks.

Burke said his payroll will come between 42 and 44 million next year and that he'd like to keep his team together. I looked at the numbers and think that caliamad has it right.... 5.5 is the max that Burke will go.

Burke also said that the figure and term had to be good for his club. He said that he could separate the business side in his negotiations. I have a feeling you'll all end up with Giguere in net again. I wonder if you'll have Selanne and S. Niedermayer moreso.

Congrats on the Cup victory.

was thinking about the situation a little bit, and although he is without a doubt the best goalie on the market this year, i dont think there will be a lot of buyers, especially with hasek resigning.

phoenix, st louis, and florida (maybe, their board is saying belfour is likely back) are the only real buyers i can think of. everyone else is either set in net, or no cap room.

i could see any of those 3 teams deciding to let Anaheim take the larger contract with Giguere and try and trade for Bryz or Fernandez.

all i can hope for is that Giguere is back at a reasonable price. a contract wiht a cap hit of $5.7 (same as turco) would be ideal.

If Burke has a budget at 44m with a salary cap @ 52m....I have a hard time thinking it will be difficult to re-sign Giguere at 5.5m-6.0m. He's going to command at least what Luongo is earning at 6.75m and maybe more.

With that said it would appear that Bryzgalov is opening his mouth again, firing the first shot over the bow of the USS Brian Burke.

Quote:
"I am sure that either I or Giguere will be leaving the club soon, since Anaheim have signed a strong Swiss keeper, Jonas Hiller," said Bryzgalov. "Giguere had a nice season, and I think Anaheim can sign him.

"Though I have an existing contract with the Ducks ($1.8 million for '07-'08), and I have proven I deserve to be on the team, I am not the one who will decide. It all depends on our general manager, Brian Burke."
Ilya Bryzgalov expects to be gone

Who expects that Bryzgalov will say he was misquoted by the Russian media....

That link doesn't go anywhere.

In any event, he's at least not saying what Brian Burke wants to do, but rather his own thoughts on what will happen.

But Bryz needs to follow Don Corleone's advice and not tell anyone outside the family what he's thinking. I can't tell if the kid lacks self-confidence or he just likes talking to the press.

No, he's just oblivious to media scrutiny. In fact, he's a pretty weird bird all together. He totally speaks his mind but doesn't have an ego. He's really smart but kind of naive too. I seriously think he doesn't realize what kind of weight the things he says have. Oh well, his interviews crack me up.

You see, I've not got any problem with what's been said here. He's just saying what we've been saying for ages. I'll never understand why telling people what you think is a bad thing. If he said anything else then I would call him an idiot.

Exactly. You want your backup saying he thinks he can be our #1 guy. It's much better than eternal backups who never push themselves to be starter.

No, you want your backup THINKING he can be the #1 guy, but that doesn't mean he has to say it to a reporter for public consumption.

I'm not really pissed about this though. The writing is pretty much on the wall in this case unlike last off-season.

I think he has a better chance to win with the ducks and will take a hometown discout.

take it for what it's worth but Eklund posted on his blog that it's 'more likely' JS will sign before the draft.

I've heard the same thing. Should be done by the draft.

Also to add I'm hear the contract to be in the area of 3yrs @ 19.2 million.

That is a fair bit of money. Still, I know that he deserves it. JIGGY!

Now that Burke (supposedly) is offering this amount of money, I have to think that possibly some money got freed up from another source. (Retirement(s)) I hope that is not the case, but 6.4 million is 900K over what Burkey wanted.

Wildcat's usually solid, but I'm skeptical. If Giguere and his agent accept a deal for only three years, I'll be ****ing astounded. I mean astounded. I just can't fathom that.

Then again, I have no idea how the hell Burke got Bryz to ink a two-year deal when he could have been a UFA this offseason.

It is really bad quality, but the better quality image wouldn't fit and MS Paint is rather limited in what it can do (though I love it... ).

Ditto, the yearly is a bit high but if it's for 3 years that is probably better than say a five year deal. Does anyone know what the payroll would be if this happens?(And subtracting Bryz's salary via trade makes this type of figure possible)

The Ducks would be in perfect position if the Kings sign him at $7M a season for four years. That would be great for Anaheim.

C'mon Kings lunkheads - we want a dynasty!!!

Glovehand high - GOAL!!!

I'm on my way out the door but wanted to pass along information that will back-up what Ek has already reported. I met up with J.S. Giguere today and while he cannot disclose information about his negotiations with the Ducks I left the conversation very confident that he will re-sign with Anaheim.
