Did Ward die or something? They aren't in the market for a starting goalie.

Great thread. You offer no real justification for the canes making the move and you don't include a proposal or even what the ducks might be looking for.

If Carolina does add a goalie, it'll likely be for the ahl or someone along the lines of a Ben Bishop. It won't be a clear-cut #1. They won't give up the assets required to acquire someone of that calibre when Ward will be back in 2 months tops. What do they do then? Spend 10 mil+ on their goalie tandem?

2 months is a significant time. It's the rest of the regular season. Maybe Hiller is available a little cheaper right now with Fasth as the potential future starter.

Hiller for Jussi Jokinen, McBain and a 3rd or GTFO.

Also, we're probably not going to trade for a goaltender. More likely, a defenseman.

That'd be such an FU to Dan Ellis..Hiller won't be moved until at least this summer. Having two starting goalies like Hiller and Viktor is a luxury and we need to keep the tandem together for a run at the playoffs.

The organization? Guy had to fight for an NHL job. played well enough to earn the backup spot and has played great in that role, probably the best backup we've had since Gerber/Ward

Yes, but then, Ward's goaltending hasn't exactly been winning us games outright either.

Ellis doesn't have to be good, he just doesn't have to **** up until one of the two Staal's gets back on the ice.

Andersen for a 3rd?

Can't see Carolina doing this. Hiller's contract is 1 year too long. I can't really see the Ducks doing this either. Fasth will have to play a little longer first. The Ducks are much better off keeping Hiller around until the trade deadline in 2014. By then they will know if Fasth is the real deal.

If Carolina adds a goalie, it'll be a backup they can move to the NHL or someone on an expiring contract. Hiller at 4.5 is way too much for a band-aid.

He's a fine backup, he was awful in Tampa and for some reason his reputation from there is still with him. Other than that he's had a solid career as a backup and even had a decent year as a starter. He and Emery took the Ducks to the playoffs when Hiller went down a couple of years ago, and he's been pretty good so far this season.

Teams don't bring in established #1 goalies like Hiller when their #1 is injured, especially not when Hiller has another year remaining on the contract. If anything, they'll probably just end up trading for someone who can share some of the workload with Ellis, or just some good AHL goalie with NHL experience for depth insurance.

there is literally zero goal-tending market this year.

and nobody is giving up assets for a short term solution - the trade deadline could change things but as of now, don't hold your breath

Let me rephrase that then: Hiller is not available right now, and so, Hiller is not available.

Well if Carolina is willing to crazy overpay then you have to listen to the offer.

Carolina isn't going to "crazy overpay" for a goalie. Ward is still their guy.
