A ton more than Fasth and Andersen have combined. No playoff games, but 172 regular season games, two seasons above 92svs% as a starter, and made Canadas World Championship roster twice (only got to play the 2nd time, but that's the most difficult WC roster to make). He made a name for himself around the league during the 03 cup run, but he had been good for a fairly long time already.
The Mighty Ducks didn't enter the 2003 playoffs as a contender either. They got in as a 7th seed, and missed the playoffs the three or four years prior to that. If the Ducks fall this season to a low seed come trade deadline, I'd move Hiller. But if we're looking like a contender at that point, I'd feel better entering the postseason with Hiller/Andersen than Fasth/Andersen, especially since the latter could end up being Gibson/Andersen as Fasth seems to struggle with groin issues.
