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.
the last couple games hiller's played the team has completely left him out to try. They've been so fatigued when he's in net. I dont really think they aren't "confident" in him. As for rebound control, I really find it funny considering fasth's worse part of his game is his rebound control. Hiller's is bad as well no doubt, but his is definitely better than fasth's is...
The thing that fasth has shown right now is that he'll make basically save all the shots that he SHOULD save and he'll maybe make a save that he shouldn't.
Hiller is prone to the soft goal which can be deflating but he'll also make the huge stop.
