Ducks get Giggy after all

To the surprise of everyone at ITCS (in other words: me), the Anaheim Ducks have re-signed goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere. I speculated that, despite his performance in the playoffs this summer, the Ducks might let him leave via free agency and go with the cheaper Ilya Bryzgalov. Instead, they inked Giguere to a 4 year, $24 million contract - something close to what he would have gotten on the open market. Bryzgalov looks like the odd man out in orange county and, with a low cap number (about $1.2 million), should command a nice return for the quackers.
