Don't forget where Hiller comes from.

And I guess the answer to this question depends on Hillers play. I don't expect Fasths numbers to decrease drastically (something around .92 / 2.1-2.3 GAA would be what I expect from him), so Hiller definitely needs to improve. But he always was a slow starter and went on a tear in the second half of the season, so I'm not really worried about him.

Since this is a shortened season I think we will see Fasth having about 25-30 starts in the regular season with Hiller playing about 70% of the games in the playoffs.

If the things stay like this or Fasths numbers will come down to the area I predicted, the Ducks have most likely one of the best goalie duos in the league.
I have no idea who eventually will get the highest number of starts this season.

It depends on how Hiller will respond and if Fasth manage to continue his stellar play.

I fully agree though that a high performing goalie duo would be the best for Ducks with both of them playing well.

Fasth is living out his childhood dream right now and thus having tons of motivation and focus. Fasth being a late bloomer is kind if rare too, it has happened before though. Thinking about another goalie having played for AIK, Tim Thomas. In the same way a setback wouldn't be surprising either.
