Unfortunately, his play in Syracuse really hasn't helped his chances. Had he been decent, that fact about his contract would have made him a safe bet for backup-duties in Anaheim next year, but he wasn't, and seeing Hiller struggle to start out of the gate and the impact of that on our season made it obvious that the spot was deserving of more attention, I suppose.
Lol. Ducks will regret this, i just cant understand this deal. Fasth is the most overrated goalie... So shaky when there are real games being played, easy goals too often. Well, 1 year and then back to Sweden/KHL.
He is awfully bad, he's the biggest reason sweden failed at the latest WHC too.
Too...? What other disappointments for his teams is he almost single-handedly responsible for? After winning SEL goalie of the year for the second time, I would guess not a lot. Honestly, I can't help but assume that this is just some fans of other SEL teams blaming him for their country's success at this WHC. Maybe that's even accurate, but it's a short tournament that isn't suitable to judge a player on, and certainly not compared to the years before.
