hiller to the leafs.

Given burke history of dealing with the ducks since he arrived and the fact that we need a goalie it would not suprise me at all if when the lockout ends brian burke places a call to his old buddy murray and inquires about current ducks starter Jonas Hiller in fact it wouldn't shock me at all if they have had conversations and a deal gets done when a cba is signed.

what I want to know is what in your opinion would need to go back?

Another starter? Reaching at straws, Deslauriers is the only other goalie with any NHL experience. I can't say I know too much about Fasth, Anderson, Gibson, Bobkov and Cousineau, but I have yet to hear of any of their records in the bigs.

I could see Hiller to the leafs as an interesting scenario near the deadline if the Duck are out of the playoff, and decide to trade Perry, Getzlaf, Selanne and Koivu for a big Rebuild!

In this case, they would not really mind if they dont have starter until the end of the season.

they would ask for picks / prospect / young player.

The chances of that are as high as Scott Gomez scoring 30 goals in oneseason again .

Well doesn't surprise me that a leafs' fan can definitely see this happening . There's absolutely no way that this happens.

Yes, better players have been traded. There's usually a reason for those players being traded. If you want someone in this town with a spare goalie, bug the Kings fans. We have one starter.

Besides, didn't McGuire say that you guys are trading Bozak and Kadri for Luongo? What the hell do you even need Hiller for?

We have a few talented prospects, but no one that's close to playing in the NHL.

if the lockout wipes out this season he will be in the final year of his deal. I'm sure they will attempt to sign him if they can't he likely gets moved.

We have no reason to think that he won't. Even if he wants to leave at the end of his contract, by all means let him play out the final year. Who gives a damn about some draft picks and prospects. We have those.

The Leafs having nothing that I want MORE then Hiller. We lose him and we are SOL in net.

Lets say we take Gardiner or Grabovski, we are still much worse without Hiller. We have a pretty good future in net but they are a few years away and not a sure-thing.

Lol, well of course better players have been moved but do tell me, who is going to be the starter for Anaheim? There's no way that Hiller gets traded if there's no one to take his place.

I figure if Hiller is being traded some goalie prospect would need to be coming back. Hiller to anywhere I think Florida would be the best option.

Why? Unless the management feels Markstrom isn't starter material anymore, which is doubtful.

Markstrom is nice and all but it all depends on when Florida is ready to take the next step to becoming a great team. Most goalies don't come into their prime till the mid to late 20's.


Also I find it funny a Vancouver fan critiques when all I have seen is Van fans preaching that Florida needs to trade for Lou.

Florida doesn't need Luongo, Hiller, or any goalie at the moment. Markstrom is the same age as a lot of their core pieces going forwards. It doesn't really make sense for them to go and acquire anyone right now. Theodore/Clemmenson is a good enough tandem to keep them reasonably competitive while their prospects develop and gain experience, and Markstrom will likely take over the starting role in about 3 years, when their other young players start hitting their prime as well. Maybe if by that time Markstrom hasn't panned out they'll look to acquire a goalie, but otherwise I'd think there are far more likely candidates, like Chicago, San Jose, etc.

Sorry I thought you were one of those Van fans who keep telling Florida they need Lou. Don't get me wrong I like Markstrom I just thought if Anaheim was trading Hiller they would want a young promising goalie in return. There is only three I can think of and Markstrom being one of them. The other two being Bernier and Campbell and Hiller is great but I doubt he can surpass Quick or Lehtonen.
