Is Giguere on the block?

The Avalanche is expected to be a seller going into next week's trade deadline, as the Denver Post reports that goalie J.S. Giguere could be a good pick for a team that needs netminding experience heading into the playoffs.

Speculation suggests forwards David Jones, Shane O'Brien, Jay McClement, Daniel Winnik and Cody McLeod, and defensemen Kyle Quincey, Ryan O'Byrne and Ryan Wilson could interest teams, but the 34-year-old goalie could provide the veteran experience several contenders are looking for.

Giguere has a small cap hit of $1.25 million and is signed through next season, and could catch the eye of the Chicago Blackhawks or the San Jose Sharks, who have struggled with issues in between the pipes in recent games.

The veteran netminder could provide an interesting return for the Avs, possibly a high draft choice, as the team does not have a first-round pick in the upcoming draft due to the Semyon Varlamov trade.

In 28 games with the Avs this season, Giguere has registered a .923 save percentage and 2.13 goals-against average.

Meanwhile, several other trade scenarios could be considered, some involving players that once seemed untouchable, as top-forward Paul Stastny could potentially be dealt in a last-minute trade if the return offer is too good to pass.
