The 30s are when most goalies play their best hockey. Age is totally a non-issue.

It's not his age. It's the sample size of NHL games.

Here's to hoping that he can keep it up the whole year and give us the ability to trade Hiller for cap space and some nice pieces.

I think it is a little too much BUT it is much better then losing him for nothing in a few months.

I'm doing the chicken dance of victory right now. Is Bob reading our minds? I like this move as it makes our goal tending that much stronger! Even if we don't trade Hiller away, it ensures we will always put up very good back stopping for the next few years. Also, it gives more time for our younger goalies to develop and mature.

Since our goalie is the last line of defense and they make a huge difference if our team playing in front of them is sucking terribly (as it has many this year), then I subscribe to the idea of solidifying that position for years to come.

Risky move. Here's hoping Fasth doesn't crash back to reality before 2015.

30-33 is not a problem at all, such a small difference.

I just want that Bob signs our big duo soon.


As for Fasth, i`m happy we resigned him, but personally, i`d like to take a longer look at him before giving him almost 6m in 2 years.

I think this is a good signing but why is everyone so anxious to trade Hiller? He is a #1 goalie and we've all seen the ability that he has to steal games, he had a rough start to the season and then got injured. I really think it would be a big mistake and I for one would be extremely ****** to trade the guy who's carried the team on his back for the better part of the last three or four years for some of the packages I've seen in this thread.

I love this signing. I was hoping Murph would sign him to this exact contract. Well done!

We needed to commit to Fasth soon because if he keeps up with great play he'd be well sought after. I think a lot of people are putting too much emphasis on the 8 games thing. He's 30 years old and has been a pro hockey player for a while. He's no rookie, just new to the NHL. He had to prove he can handle the NHL game and he has. If he were younger I might question whether he could keep this up but I feel like this is a good indicator of the kind of goalie he's going to be.

I'm not a big fan of Hiller. He some how stops a lot of pucks but he never looks comfortable. My wife swears every great save he makes is an accident. I want to start a drinking game where you take a shot every time Johnny or Hazy says something along the lines of "Hiller didn't see it" or if he's looking in the complete opposite direction of the puck. I hope Fasth keeps up his great play and makes Hiller expendable. That shouldn't happen until the summer for a few reasons: 1) to make sure Fasth is the real deal, 2) to ride what might be the best goalie tandem in the league into the playoffs and 3) the trade market will be so much better.

I'm on board the Fasth bandwagon 100%.

Don`t understand it either, but i think some part of us here were just jocking about that.

Sad if they didn`t

Hillsy is striky (is that the word? not sure about the spelling either) , but, when he`s on his game, usually, on the 2nd part of the season, he`s on it big time.

Streaky. And I agree.

I just hope that we don't lose whoever leaves to waivers, like what happened with Bryz. But I think at that point Burke was more interested in looking for another job than trading Bryz.

As for Fasth, it's not like he is an 18 year old straight out of juniors and doesn't have professional experience.

Do people really think a 2.9 million average is a crippling number? Even if he goes Steve Mason on us he'd be worth more to us than the two years of Jason Blake we had to endure. At worst he becomes a relief goaltender for Hiller. He's not, however, an unproven goaltender. Internationally he was one of the best goalies outside of the NHL, and he's shown that he can adapt to North American hockey.

I'm very happy Murray struck a deal this soon. I was really hoping we'd get Fasth locked up asap, and it's not surprising considering the Ducks have been after Fasth for a couple of years now. If I recall correctly, didn't Fasth mention a while back that part of the reason he chose to come to Anaheim was because they had expressed the most interest over the past couple of seasons?

Pros
* Ducks get their guy locked up for a few years at a fair 1B price, and a steal 1A price.
* Ducks have the option to go 1A/1B for a few seasons giving them more time to make a choice between the two when Gibson is ready.
* If we waited much longer, there's a strong possibility Fasth's value goes beyond what we can afford.

Cons
* It's a huge contract for a guy who has only played a handful of NHL games. But to be fair, the Ducks have been scouting him for a long time and probably aren't all that surprised by his performance up to this point.

Not a bad deal, although maybe a bit too soon. I'd let him play few more games before jumping on it.

What I really don't like is Murray fiddling with all the small bits but always leaves big nuts to the end, then it fails (Schultz for example).

Hope he won't screw up Getz/Perry contracts.

There's no need to mischaracterize the argument that way, despite how excited you get for new guys. Signing Fasth right now is a risk. We may need that money later; it depends on how things work out. You're assuming when you talk about what happens "at worst."

And yes, he's an unproven goaltender. His career overseas is comparatively brief for a man his age and ultimately amounts to a successful minor pro career. Nor does an 8 game streak prove that he can adapt.

Which is why it's a risk. I think it's a good risk, but it's still a risk.

actually at worse, he completely fizzles out and we have to find a new backup to replace him. that's the factual at worst

once again, not saying its an awful signing. just early and risky

Absolutely nothing wrong with a 1a/1b goalie tandem with two legitimate starters IF both can handle it mentally. If the Ducks do lose one or both of the twins having solid goalies will help keep the team relevant. Absolutely nothing wrong with this move.
