Would Burke Take A Huge Cap Hit For A Goalie?

from Randy Youngman of the OC Register,

Is Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere on his way out of town?

If so, all signs point toward Toronto.

The rumors that were rampant in the offseason and then dissipated in training camp have resumed in earnest….

Giguere (0-2, 3.65, .895) is winless in four games this season and currently is recovering from a strained groin muscle. Giguere, 32, makes $6 million this season and $7 million next season, so the Ducks obviously don’t want to pay that much to a backup.

Jiggy has a no-trade clause in his contract, but the word is that he would waive it to go to Toronto, where he would be reunited with General Manager Brian Burke and longtime goalie coach Francois Allaire. He also would have a chance to play more regularly.
