Has what I understand , you are fan of the Ducks but you hate Hiller , and you won't another goalie . well , When Ducks will have change them goalie, you will be satisfied one time. Later it will be the same genre of topic No. Faith in Miller, or Gibson, or Andersen or another one. it is sad. For my part I adore Ducks and I support every player, but if Hiller Is fired, and will go to play in another club, I shall become a fan of this other club, even if I remain a fan of the Ducks come what may in the coming months.
It's just my opinion , I respect the yours ...don't forget Go Ducks coin coin coin ( in french)
as already said... each team has a salary cap so they can't dish out money like they do in football. However, you are perfectly right that for some reason.... a lot of Ducks fan don't like Hiller or they are just a few but much more audible. However, Fasth was supposed to take over from Hiller last year and Andersen is it currently... yet Fasth is no longer with Anaheim and Bruce backed Hiller for surely not trading him just now.
Apart from that... I don't doubt that he could look just for a couple of more years and play his career out in Switzerland as other Swiss goaltenders have done in the past.
Apart from that, I don't understand the discussion around Miller. He's 33 (2 years older than Hiller) and if Hiller is looking for a couple of years contract.. why in the world wouldn't Miller looking for the same but for more bucks?
I don't think Anaheim needs Miller next or even in the season after that. In case we don't sign Hiller, because he's looking for a 4-5 year contract which we may or may not give, Andersen is doing just fine and he's ready to get playoff experience. No need to prolong it for another year after the current season. We can get a cheap backup and spend money elsewhere.
