I fully expect Fasth to outplay Hiller, everything else would be a huge dissapointment. I rank Fasth as number second behind Lundqvist among Swedish goalies.
It's not about having high demands at all. Lol

It's about all the people overhyping him like yourself. His play in net yesterday left lots to be desired. I understand it could be first game jitters but people in this thread are anointing him as some great goalie and essentially saying he's on his way of being our new number 1.

If yesterday was any indication I personally would say he won't last long playing like he did. This is basing it off yesterday's game only. Needs to work on rebound control, lateral quickness and needs to track the puck better. Maybe he needs more of an adjustment period as he alluded to in the interview after the game that the small ice is much faster. This can account to why he struggled in those aspects. He may end up being a very solid goalie but he was nowhere close to being a number 1 based off last night IMO.
