I doubt it. Burke won't want to trade Giguere after just aquiring him, he brings value in not just his golatending but mentoring, and work ethic, not to mention his NTC as well. Chicago doesn't have the space to aquire him either.
Realistically, this is a trade that I could never see happening for reasons that others have already mentioned (NTC and Burke's history with Giguere) and also because Giguere and Gustavsson have looked like a pretty good goaltending tandem, albeit in a relatively-small sample size.
Just based on comments from Gustavsson alone as to what it has meant to have a guy like Giguere around, I'd keep him. Personally, cap hit and all, I like seeing a proven veteran goalie like Giguere back there. When he's on his game, he's just so solid positionally that it brings back fond memories of what it was like to have a solid positional goaltender like Belfour in net. Not to mention that Giguere seems like a fairly affable guy and a good guy to have around the team.
Tell me this, next year the goal is to make the playoffs, right? Do you have 100% confidence in The Monster to get the team there? Or would you feel much better having both Jiggy and him around? I know I would feel much more comfortable with the latter.
Gustavsson plays a string of very good games he's and automatic number 1 NHL goalie.
Gustavsson struggles in several games since arriving in Toronto, he's a bust.
He's a young talented goalie who looks like he has the tools to be a good number 1 eventually. No need to rush him, Giguere is only helping him and the team by being here.
How about you go look at my previous posts before thinking I'm another Maple Leaf Drone? I look at everything very carefully and some what pessimistically, but Jonas has impressed me with his slow progression. That is why I expect him to be playing well next season.
Unless Burke takes back Campbell and Huet and the forward he was looking for (Sharp). I'm not even sure if we'd have enough room in the cap to fit those two contracts, but if we did, we would just reverse the problem. Not a good idea.
