Wilson has to say that Giggy is the #1 as that would be the only way to justify bringing in a goalie @ 6/7 mil a year. If he didnt come out and stamp him w 'most of the starts' the Toronto media would have crucified Wilson and Burke for a stupid move [which the media and fans are already grumbling]. Yes, my saying Gust getting 75% of the starts was a bit ambitious, but it will be around 50/50 between the two. Giggy isnt that saviour or the future of Leafs net-minding, Gust is.
dont be fooled or swayed by him getting a shutout last night, its one game, played against a struggling team. Giggy had a shutout for the Ducks this year, but still struggled throughout behind a sub-par defensive core. A defensive core that is no better or worse than that of the leafs.
And dont get me wrong, I love Giggy, Ive watched him since junior and have nothing but respect for him. Im just being realistic and hopefully the Leafs coaching staff will be too as Gust needs development to know if they should sign him...and what better time to allow him to develop than getting minutes during the remainder of a lost season?
