08:21 AM ET 04.09 | No stranger to speaking his mind, Jean-Sebastien Giguere took things to new heights in the Mile High City on Monday night. On a night where he moved into 47th placed on the all-time NHL list for games played by a goalie, Jiggy blew his top after the Avs' 3-1 loss to the 29th-place Calgary Flames at home. ... "Some guys are more worried about their Vegas trip at the end of the season than playing the games, than playing every minute of the games. Quite frankly, I don't care about your Vegas trip right now." ... Then this, as Jiggy got even more red in the face with anger: "It's embarrassing. I'm embarrassed to be here right now. It's not even funny."

And he played for the Leafs during the Burke era. He must be freakin livid.

I guess planning golf outings at the end of the season is more palatable than Vegas trips?

The Vegas trip sounds more interesting that what the Avs have done on the ice this season.

Could be worse.We coulda just traded for Steve Mason and signed him to a new contract to back up Ilya Bryzgalov on our 12th placed team.

Well, as you are the resident expert on these things, you'll have to guide me on how to deal with a team not making the playoffs.

Agreed, but he does have a point. Good for him speaking up.

After his exposure to His Irkness and the Leafs, I'm not surprised at all that "Jiggy got even more red in the face with anger." He's damaged for life.

Zing!

Seemingly, 40 games is enough to wipe away eight years of history....

Don't you live in Philly? You have the Eagles to teach you that.

Yea, but you have the Leafs, Raptors and Blue Jays - a natural hat trick.

I'm pretty sure we are just doing a bit of trash talking. No venom on my part.

Like the Moody Blues reference, tho.

I think by him speaking up, he just threw Joe Sacco underneath a bus.

The 'last place' these losers need to be is Vegas.

C'mon Dave. let 'em be. I want to see a "no-pity" fight to the end! DL is getting cockier every day and Phantom is, shall we say not happy a lot of the time (I've been there a lot of the year too). So, let's give both a shiv and let 'em go at it. :)
