Agreed. Fasth just looks more in control. He plays the percentages. He'll never be flashy but there's nothing wrong with that. I think trying to be too flashy gets Hiller into trouble sometimes. There's times when he should just get infront of a puck, and he tries to glove it. Hiller is better at the desperation saves though.

In fairness to Hiller though, Fasth has had the luxury of having big defenseman clear the rebounds he does give up. Hiller hasn't had that since Pronger left. Granted he's had it this year like Fasth though.
