Which high-flying teams are in for a fall? When should the Anaheim Ducks trade a goalie? Should Ray Emery’s fight spark a rule change? All these questions and more in this week’s mailbag. And remember, if you want to send in your question or comment on anything hockey-related, send it in here, and you may find it published in a future column.
Goalie Jonas Hiller has six wins for a team that finds itself with even greater goalie depth than it had after Viktor Fasth‘s emergence last season.
Rookie Frederik Andersen, substituting for an injured Fasth, followed his shutout of Dallas in relief of Hiller on Oct. 20 with a 3-0 showing on the eight-game trip.
Edmonton Oilers will hotly pursue Jonas Hiller as free agent if Devan Dubnyk doesn’t work out in goal
The Edmonton Oilers will be all over Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller this summer, when he’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, if Devan Dubnyk (also unrestricted) doesn’t pan out as their No. 1. The Ducks are loaded in goal with Viktor Fasth, Frederik Andersen and John Gibson, the AHL’s Player of the Month. Hiller, 31, will be the Swiss Olympic goalie.
At this time last week, no doubt everyone thought Edmonton was going to make a goalie move. The Oilers didn’t for two reasons. First, they just didn’t believe what they could get would really solve their problems long-term.
Ducks’ D-man searchWord is the Ducks are looking for blue-line help with Luca Sbisa and Sheldon Souray out.
My sense is Anaheim would be looking for a young defenseman and would be willing to move a forward in return.
Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Toronto are among the clubs with depth on defense, something to keep an eye on.
