With Fasth he's shallows up rebounds or least puts them in a better spot allowing the d-men to do their job better. When he handles the puck he actually is able to pass it to his d-men. I think Hiller struggles with that because he catches with his strong hand (writing hand) and essentially handles his stick backwards.

There's no question our D plays a more confident game with Fasth in net.
Completely agree with you here. That being said, Hiller's athleticism does allow him to make those second and third saves which has lead to such a successful career so far. But as a viewer, even I've felt more comfortable watching Fasth so far this year.
