So Giggy said that if Burke asked him to waive his NTC, he would :lol: ... who would want a $6 mill underachieving goalie ? ... even at pro-rated amount with 1/2 season over?
From Toronto Star

Burke's grand plan ... unload Giggy and pick up Nabby on waivers from Detroit :angry: . Unfortunately, that would actually be a good move for Burke!

Are you just speculating? Because that would piss me off.

Of course I'm speculating ... Nabby's signing isn't even confirmed. AND no team in my opinion would want Giggy!

Nobody in their right mind would take him.

He is willing to miss out on "The Parade"? He is the true definition of a "team player".

They were talking about Giggy's trade value today on the FAN590 in Toronto. Greg Brady, former radio guy in Detroit, said Giggy wouldn't get anything better than a 4th round pick. I agree!

And the Wild, and the Stars, and the Devils. He didn't win the Conn Smythe for nothing, although his equipment certainly helped.

That said, Dave Lewis was a terrible head coach.

Right - but his star was made with 63 saves in game 1 of the playoffs against the Wings ...and the series .977 sv% and 1.00 GAA... They put him on a heater that he rode til the end. I remember it being the most frustrating series ever because it seemed like all 171 shots they had were bad angles or just plain crappy.

works every time

why not just wait for them to put Giggy on waivers if that were the case?

They must have reviewed that situation for 20 minutes. We had like 70 shots on goal that game, and found a way to lose.

6mil is crazy for ANY goalie, even Roy in his prime. The fact is, especially with the salary cap, money these days has to be allocated elsewhere and goalies can no longer demand the huge payout that they could in the past. GMs are getting wise to this, as high caliber goalies can be signed for relatively cheap now. Look at Turco and Nabakov. Leave it to Burke to throw a gigantic chunk of cash at a goalie to play for a team with horrid defense and little offense. Anyone else see a problem?
