When the Toronto Maple Leafs unloaded underperformers Jason Blake and Vesa Toskala at the trade deadline last season, many felt just getting those salaries off the books was a stroke of genius by Leafs GM Brian Burke.

The fact that Burke was also able to obtain a goalie with the pedigree of Jean-Sebastien Giguere was seen as icing on the cake.

Reunited with longtime mentor and goaltending coach Francois Allaire, Giguere is looking to recapture his past glory in Toronto. In 15 starts last season with the Leafs, the Montreal native, had a record of 6-7-2-2 with a save percentage of .916. While his numbers are not awe inspiring, it is expected he will compete with Jonas Gustavsson for the staring job this season.

Matt Krebs takes a closer look at Giguere and his relationship with goaltending guru Francois Allaire.
