6mil is crazy for ANY goalie, even Roy in his prime. Most 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?

All things considered, he's still a high ranked NHL goalie in terms of status. He went from 6 mil a year to 1 mil with Chicago. My point is the days of goalies getting those kinds of salaries are over.....unless your GM is Brian Burke.

Actually, if he gets healthy and playing well, he could be pretty attrative at the deadline for a team looking for an experienced goalie.

His salary is an absolute non-issue. There won't be much left on his salary come the deadline and he's a free agent at the end of the season.

There are only two issues regarding his trade value:

1. - needs of other teams
2. - his health

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?


Um, The Wings paid Hasek and CuJo 8 million, which included a 1 million Cup bonus.

I don't think Giguere has even made up his mind yet. One day he sounds like he wants to leave and the next day he mentions how much he loves Toronto. Just 2 days ago he said "I like playing here, I love wearing the white and blue."

I think Giguere is hoping he could put together a decent 2nd half and make burke consider re-signing him to something like 2mil.

Re-signing Giguere didn't look likely, but with Gustavsson drowning on them they might want to consider it.
