The extension for Fasth meant that they're betting on him to be a starting goalie, Hiller is pretty much gone. It's still a bit of a gamble since Fasth is not a proven option but they really do need more cap space that bad. And I think they are comfortable betting on Fasth because long-term Gibson is a franchise goalie in their minds already.

So with Hiller gone, Gibson getting some seasoning in the AHL and Bobkov not even in the picture at this point (he's a long-shot to make the NHL and even if he does so it will take years) I think everything will work out pretty well for Andersen as he should be on the Ducks' roster as Fasth's backup as soon as next season.

This is how it all looks like as of today.
