2-year, $5.8M extension for Viktor Fasth. #whereshiller... RT@DennisTFP That was Fasth. #Ducks G Viktor gets two year extension.

Wow, just wow. That could turn REALLY bad. I would never, ever, ever give a guy $2.9M/per after less than a dozen games. It's far too easy to get lucky for that many games. I mean, if he's good and can be good consistently, then this will be a decent contract, but if he's not a #1, that's a lot to pay for a back up.

Wow, what a knee jerk reaction. Risky deal for the team but good for the goalie I guess. :yay:

High risk, high reward.  If he's bonifide then the Ducks get a steal.

The thing is, Fasth is not some 21 year old phenom out of nowhere. He has several seasons under his belt in the SEL, a world championship tournament and he's 30 years old. I don't mind that contract at all - a bit surprised they made it two years but if he keeps up his level of play it's a steal.

 

I'll take him over the guy with vertigo.

It's time for my annual goalie scouting report (I kid, I kid...). Skelleftea's (Larsson's former team) goaltender Joacim Eriksson is fielding offers from NHL teams. Flyers drafted him in 2008 but didn't sign him. He has OK size (6'2, 196) and moves very well. His numbers aren't Fasth or Gustavsson-like but he does play for a much more offensive team and sees more odd-man rushes. He's been very good for SAIK this year and they're up 3-0 in the SEL final.

I wouldn't mind him instead of Hedberg next year...

Since I was completely wrong about Fasth last year, I say give him a shot.
