Can Giguere Become ‘Giggy’ Again?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

The reinvention of Jean-Sebastien Giguere begins in earnest when the lights come on Thursday night.

This is another chance, maybe his last, to reclaim the kind of hockey greatness that won him a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe Trophy in two different seasons in Anaheim. This is his final year on a contract that pays him an elite wage, more than either Ryan Miller or Martin Brodeur. And this, more than anything else, is what the downtrodden Maple Leafs are counting to begin their own road to redemption.

“Re-establishing myself as a No. 1 guy is my main priority right now.” said Giguere. He knows where is he and where he was. He isn’t one of those athletes who tends to fool himself. He know he doesn’t have Brodeur talent.

To be back, to be great again, all begins with hard work.
