At this stage of his career, the change of scenery will only do him good, IMO.
From a 1st goalie (kinda) position in a media-pressured Toronto to a backup-role in sunny California
with Selšnne + Koivu + Nokelainen.
A perfect time for Vesa to get his confidence back.
Cause seriously: lately he's been looking like a scared rabbit in that goalcrease...

Just like Finnpin and FiNsKa said, it's a good thing for Vesa getting out of TO. Every player in Toronto during times like these, when the team is underperforming are under a microscope. Every mistake they make will be noted and mentioned about in the media / interviews.
I wish Vesa all the best in Anaheim and hopefully he will regain his confidence and be a trustworthy backup for Hiller.
Good for Toskala (eases the pressure).
Good for Anaheim (got rid of Giggy, no team wants a six-million-dollar backup in their roster).
Good for Toronto (needed a solid starter, got something that at least resembles one).
