Rookie goaltender James Reimer is on a Cinderella ride, getting the start on Saturday in Buffalo against the Sabres at HSBC Arena.
Second-year Leaf Jonas Gustavsson was lent to the AHL Marlies for a two-week conditioning stint and is expected to get the call in Rochester on Saturday.
Where does that leave Jean-Sebastien Giguere?
Sure, he's going to be trade bait. But will anyone bite, especially since any team acquiring him will be on the hook for about $1.6 million US of his salary over the final six weeks of the season?
And, in the meantime, where does he sit in the pecking order of Maple Leafs goaltenders?
"I can't tell you that. No one has said anything to me," the personable Giguere said on Friday. "But, to be realistic, the guy playing on a particular night has to be considered the No. 1 guy - at least for that night."
Leafs' Giguere understands his spot
