Fasth or Hiller
 
Who will get more starts this year?

Duck Off 02-15-2013 01:24 PM

Fasth

DarthYenik 02-15-2013 01:42 PM

I hope Hiller, but I have a feeling Fasth will be hot for a good portion of the season.

Ducks DVM 02-15-2013 02:24 PM

Whichever one stays healthy and performs. Impossible to say if/when Hiller will return to form or if/when people will get enough film on Fasth to exploit his weaknesses.

bumperkisser 02-15-2013 02:35 PM

pretty sure hiller will still end up with more starts when all is said and done

Adam Banks 02-15-2013 02:43 PM

I think it depends on when Hiller gets another start (I would imagine sometime between now and Monday depending on how he's feeling) and how well he performs when he does. Also when Fasth cools down and how badly he falls etc, etc. Anyways, short answer; I think that Hiller comes back and plays out of his mind for a stretch and that he ends up starting the majority of the games this season.

Jonimaus 02-15-2013 02:49 PM

Don't expect Fasth to fall hard. He is the real deal, he's had been dominating SEL in a weak team for a couple of years. While he might not be top NHL-level, he's better than a lot of the goalies.

My feelings here.

Getz2perry 02-15-2013 04:23 PM

I think itll be a pretty even mix, unless one of them just drops off completely.

You figure we have (not postive) but 8 more back to backs if they split those and you add fasth currant 6 hell be at 15, depending on how soon hiller gets back and how he plays he could easily see 20ish games this season.

I think Fasth will start having issues when opposing teams notice how easy it seems to score on his five-hole. If he's an elite goalie, he'll start shutting it down quick and can continue with his current performance, but until that I'm sticking by Hiller. A good 6 games by his backup doesn't make all the good games Hiller has played during the past seasons irrelevant.

Maybe if Fasth is still starting when the playoffs come, maybe then. But until we even see Hiller back this question is moot.

davidy2d 02-15-2013 05:15 PM

It's hard to say how the games will split given injury and the schedule, but a healthy Hiller is still the #1.

eenok* 02-15-2013 05:40 PM

fasth hammers net while hiller keeps a tipping them in.

are you hillers cousin? hiller has never been this fasth in net...not at least in last season or this. amen

Thinking the same way. I don't expect Fasth to fall apart. He has looked sharp, but without doing anything that isn't usual for his style. His numbers won't always be as pretty, but I don't think his current play is giving us a wrong impression whatsoever.

That said, at this point, I believe that the ultimate answer to the question is a lot less about Fasth than it is about Hiller. I'm confident Fasth's play will be consistently good enough to require him to push himself to have to be very good. Either way, I am not overly worried about our goaltending right now.

next time hiller in net expect him dig many pucks from net as he did from last season., why expect anything else. no memory , king of wishfullness thinking?:help:

Eenok, your memory seems quite selective, if one was to believe everything you say. Hiller was weak at the beginning of the year, but the second half of last season he was outstanding. One of the better goalies in the entire league for that stretch.

But I don't think you're being entirely sincere with us in at least some of the posts you have for us, anyway. :)

AnaheimGuy 02-15-2013 07:14 PM

I have a feeling since Hiller didnt have a great start he might be over exaggerating his injury.

Any which way though I am very happy with Fasth. He looks confident with each SOG.

Next thought would be... are we going to re-sign him after this season and longer?!

That's been my biggest worry. Is he going to push for free agency or ask for the moon based on the way he has played? We may have to just enjoy it while we have him.

ducks8 02-15-2013 09:16 PM

I would not sit Fasth with the way he is playing. To short of a season to let Hiller ride out his funk

He said he came here to be a starter. I don't see him staying here.

I think there's a chance that we sign him for 1 year for 3-4.5 million, and we have a 1A/1B situation next year to see who becomes our starter long term, as Hiller is a UFA after next year.

This is a difficult situation, as we don't want to commit to a guy long term after only 1 season, but he's been better and more consistent than Hiller has. One thing I hate about Jonas is that he's either amazing, or dog crap, and he's the latter a little too often.

Eddie Shack 02-15-2013 10:22 PM

It's still way early in the season (even a shortened season) but if Fasth keeps playing more and keeps playing this well I could see us signing him to a 3 year deal for starter money and either keep Hiller in his last year, or trade Hiller and hope Anderson can make the jump to back up. Next year Gibson goes to the A and after that he could potentially back up Fasth for at least 2 years.

Ideally that'd work, but that's a tough proposition in a year when Fowler's raise kicks in and we're ostensibly trying to resign our current UFAs or their replacements.

bumperkisser 02-15-2013 10:32 PM

we can't sign fasth to a 1 year 3-4.5m year contract. its not doable with our twins needing contracts
