***Youngman Reports Preliminary Talks For Giguere To Toronto***

New, comments

THE TELETYPE:
Per a blog post on The OC Register, Randy Youngman is reporting whispers of preliminary trade talks between the Maple Leafs and Ducks regarding Jean-Sebastien Giguere.  The post (made at 4:10 PST) included a link to Youngman's story, but the link is no longer good. The story was also available in the paper's printed edition.

In the current cached version of the webpage, Youngman specifies that, according to his sources, talks are in the very early stages, but a deal would take place long before the trade deadline.  He speculates that Anaheim would likely have to take Vesa Toskala in return to finalize the trade.  (UPDATE 11-9: the page was apparently unavailable due to a website redesign/upgrade.  You can now find the article here).

Giguere hopes to be available for the Ducks road trip this week and improve his 0-2-1 record and 3.64 GAA. Toskala has underperformed expectations in Toronto since his arrival and is again off to a poor start (0-2-2 with a 5.13 GAA).
