Whispers heard on possible Giguere trade
For those that missed it in print or online, Register columnist Randy Youngman reports that there have been preliminary discussions between the Ducks and Toronto involving a possible trade that would send goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere to the Maple Leafs. jiggyThe Maple Leafs would like someone to mentor goaltender Jonas Gustavsson, and the Ducks would likely have to take on Vesa Toskala’s $4 million salary, Youngman writes.
Speculation about Giguere going to Toronto has been thrown about ever since former Ducks general manager Brian Burke and former Ducks goaltending coach Francois Allaire re-united in Toronto this summer.
Meahwhile, Giguere is recovering from a groin-muscle injury and could be available on the upcoming Ducks’ road trip.
