Still can't see what the change from Carolina to Anaheim was all about...
Yeah in hindsight that redraft move was pretty weird! Hiller and Fasth seem extremely solid right now, so only if they both get injured he will have any chance in the foreseeable future.
His chances in Carolina as backup contender with Dan Ellis behind Cam Ward looks actually about the same as Anaheim, since both Dan Ellis and Viktor Fasth has been outstanding backup goalies this season.
Frederik Andersen has to really impress in AHL and hope for a trade to a club that lacks a good backup goalie! So maybe Islanders...ever injured Di Pietro and old Nabokov. They might want to go after a good goalie and then having a cheap backup. If Nabokov gets "to old" or change club there might be a small opening?

Others ideas, thought, anyone?

A small hope might be that Viktor Fasth has signed a contract extension (2 year 5,8 mil dollar contract) so if he is really good for the rest of the season, they might try to sell Hiller before he is UFA and then Frederik Andersen are in a backup position!
