The Ducks were responsible for several hellos and goodbyes.

Jonas Hiller signs with the Flames

#488378013 / The Calgary Flames and Jonas Hiller agree to a 2 year $9M deal. Great sign by the Flames. Hiller had a great year last year with the Ducks, the Flames really do need a good goaltender and Hiller is that guy. He did get benched in the playoffs but I think he will get passed that and have a good career with the Flames.

What Direction Are The Vancouver Canucks Going?

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, If you believe the reports the Vancouver Canucks have contacted the agents for Dave Bolland and goalies Jonas Hiller and Ryan Miller, you have to wonder what the green brain trust of the Vancouver Canucks is thinking these days. Not sure whether it escaped their notice, but only the Buffalo Sabres scored fewer goals than their...

Anaheim Ducks Koivu, Hiller, & Winnik To Hit Free Agency

After consecutive Stanley Cup Playoff disappointments, it is no surprise the Anaheim Ducks are looking to shake things up in the time leading up to the 2014-15 NHL season. Despite the Ducks finishing at the top of the Pacific Division for the past two seasons, the team has failed to make it past the conference quarter finals both years. While the Los Angeles Kings recent second...

UFA: Thomas Greiss

I feel Greiss may test the waters as he wants to be a starter; I just don’t feel there is a team that would sign him as a starter. I can’t think of too many teams that need a starter, let alone one who has never proven himself to be a starter. I can think of maybe 4 or 5 times that will need a starter. There are some big names who will most likely make it to free agency, including...

Jonas Hiller sad knowing end of Ducks career is here

Earlier this season, Jonas Hiller's name popped up in trade speculation, his future with the team very much in doubt. In the end, the Ducks hung on to Hiller, who was playing well, and dealt Viktor Fasth to Edmonton, taking a chance on their veteran. Hiller faltered down the stretch and lost his starting job first to rookie Frederik Andersen and then to another rookie, John...

Ducks-Kings, Game 4: Morning skate notebook

LOS ANGELES -- Rumor has it, the Ducks are becoming the most interesting team in hockey.  Saturday morning's skate only served to bolster that reputation as a third goalie was introduced and head coach Bruce Boudreau announced more lineup changes on the way. Left winger Matt Beleskey and goaltender Frederik Andersen are listed as day-to-day and will not play Saturday night....

Visiting Ducks check in, cut Kings' series lead to 2-1

An old winger and a cold goalie. That’s not exactly how the Ducks intended to win. The Ducks, to a large extent, followed their plan Thursday night. They moved the puck with speed and poise, forechecked effectively and got traffic in front of the Kings’ net. Then, when it all nearly blew up in their faces in the third period, they held on and regained some life in this second...

Ducks hold off Kings in Game 3 to get back in the series

LOS ANGELES -- For a brief moment, the Ducks have some respite. Anaheim defenseman Ben Lovejoy's third-period goal allowed the Ducks to sigh a collective breath of relief. Holding a slim lead in a period where nearly everything went wrong, the goal gave the Ducks just enough insurance for a 3-2 win against the Kings, Thursday night at Staples Center in Game 3 of the Western Conference...

NHL Playoffs Game 2- Los Angeles Kings at Anaheim Ducks Preview

“The Freeway Faceoff” between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks was supposed to be a close series between two evenly matched teams. Game 1 did a lot to reinforce that theory.  The Kings escaped Anaheim with a 3-2 overtime victory despite being outplayed for long stretches of the game.  Marian Gaborik tied the game with just seven seconds left in regulation time and...

Freeway Faceoff: Ducks' starting goalie a mystery for Game 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- When the Ducks take the Honda Center ice Saturday night, all eyes will be watching the home side goal. In a somewhat odd move, head coach Bruce Boudreau has declined to name a starting goaltender for Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Kings.

Who will start in the Ducks net for game 1 and beyond? That is the question being asked of Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau--a question that he is firmly avoiding.

All three are capable goalies. But the question...
