$5,8 Million

...are the Days for Hiller counted in Anaheim?


One of the breakout stories of the 2012/13 NHL season was rewarded on Wednesday as the Anaheim Ducks signed rookie goaltender Viktor Fasth to a two-year, $5.8 million contract extension.
This season for the Ducks, his first in the NHL, Fasth has posted a perfect 8-0-0 record with a 1.78 goals against average and a .933 save percentage.
He is just the third netminder in NHL history to win his first eight decisions, joining Ray Emery, who accomplished the feat with the Ottawa Senators and Bob Froese, who did it with the Philadelphia Flyers.
"Viktor has proven himself not only this year in the NHL, but the previous two seasons as the top goaltender in Sweden," said Ducks General Manager Bob Murray. "We are pleased to be able to keep him and feel fortunate to have two top NHL goaltenders going forward."
Before joining the Ducks, the Kalix, Sweden native was named the Swedish Elite League's goaltender of the year the last two seasons, the first goalie to capture the award in back-to-back seasons since Henrik Lundqvist.
Fasth also led Slovakia to a silver medal at the 2011 World Hockey Championship.

interesting to sign him after 8 games. i like the cap hit though wish corey signed for that much. although not sure if hes gonna be a #1 unless he has a good backup.

Cant overlook back to back years a sel goalie of year. last guy to do that was lundquist, so maybe anaheim just got a good deal?

i think they want a goalie tandem like the canucks have had, we have all seen the benefits of that in the regular season and that is the name of the game to get into the playoffs and anything can happen.

$7.4m on a goaltending tandem.

Pekka Rinne is pulling in $7m all on his own. Lundqvist, $6.875m.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

yeah it makes the canucks goalie $ allocation seem okay, we spend 9.3, NYR spends 8.175, nashville 8.5. Not bad considering the quality of our backup.

Smart signing by anaheim, teams starting to figure it out that a bad/average backup can cost you a postseason birth.

A fasth response to a goalie emerging fasth.

However, with the hefty contract, I believe he'll go down in ratings fasth. He'll be overpaid and he won't play as effectively. You'll see.

A little soon, but he has been lights out. This signing will make Hiller fight for his job.

So, why exactly 5.8 million when they'll swap goalies in tandem?

Burke went to Sweden to get Gustavsson.

Ducks quietly sign Fasth and he emerges as a starter.

Lol laffs.

I keep wondering when someone will get serious about Joacim Eriksson.

He was drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 draft by Philly (22 years old) but he went unsigned meaning he is a UFA now. All he has done is put up insane numbers in the SEL.

Back up for Schneids next year?

Fasth is good, but this is a bad move by the Ducks. Don't sign a player on a hot streak, you'll over pay. $58 mil over 10 years for Quick looked like a great deal last summer, but if he was playing then like he is now, he'd have got no more than $20 mil over 5 or 6 years.

Nine career NHL games, bit of a gamble by the Ducks no?

Is she a dress wearer or a pants wearer? Could you share a rowboat? Could a rowboat support her? Would an average size rowboat support her without capsizing?

ATTENTION:

Just for clarification, Canucks are not going to try to get Hiller.

Fasth should just leave NHL and go back to Sweden.

I don't get why Philly, of all teams, not sign him?

Ducks need to work on Getzlaf and Perry. Instead they sign a guy who's only played 9 games. Get your priorities straight Ducks
