Jean-Sebastien Giguere will start his very first game as a Leaf tomorrow night against the Devils, this acorrding to Ron Wilson who told reporters at today practice "He"ll get the majority of starts the rest of the way."
There was also a Dion Phaneuf sighting with him wearing the number 3 jersey which belong to Exelby. Phaneuf was paired up with Francois Beauchemin in practice with Luke Schenn paired up with Garnet Exelby and Tomas Kaberle paired up with Carl Gunnarsson. Now, I like those pairing for the game on Tuesday night but going forward it just does not suit me. I hope once Komi gets healthy pair that they him up with Schenn, Kaberle with Phanuef and Gunnarsson with Beauchemin and get rid of Exelby.
I understand you have to make Giguere the starter because he is making starters money with his salary being $6 million but in my opinion he will be a bit rusty after playing 4 or 5 games in a row and you have to give Jonas Gustavsson a chance to show some of that talent that made him a target coming out of the Swedish Elite League
