Giguere Willing To Waive NTC

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,

Goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere said he is willing to consider waiving his no-trade clause if Leafs GM Brian Burke wants to trade him.

“I haven’t waived my no trade, I haven’t talked to Burke at all about it, but I’ve said, if Burke was to come see me, I would owe him the respect to think about it and talk to my family about it,” said Giguere.

“When and if this happens, we’ll see what happens.”

Giguere made his comments Thursday morning, prior to his 7 p.m. start against his former team, the Anaheim Ducks. Giguere waived his no-trade clause last year when Burke acquired him for Jason Blake and Vesa Toskala.

I guess he’s not going anywhere, as Burke has made it clear he won’t ask a player to waive the no-trade.

...but Nonis will.  That is a technicality that Burke likes to throw around.

Not even sure there is a market for JSG?  1.8 mil at the trade deadline is a big chunk of change to take on.
