By far the most consistent goalie in the SEL the last two years. Lundqvisting AIK to the semifinals twice.

$1M will be a decent salary upgrade for him too..
People seem to have forgotten Gustavsson played on one of the best teams in the SEL before heading to NA whereas Fasth's AIK was supposed to be the laughing stock of the SEL last season.

Fasth was shaky at the WC this year, and a mess in the final last year, but as a backup in Anaheim I think he has every chance in the world to be just fine.

And no, there were no goalie CLEARLY better than him in the SEL lasts season. A couple of them are fairly close though.
