Goaltending is no longer among the issues the Ducks must address this summer in pursuit of a return to their 2007 Stanley Cup-winning form.
By signing backup Jonas Hiller on Wednesday to a two-year contract that will pay him $1.3 million annually, the Ducks would appear to be set in goal through the 2009-10 NHL season.

Never a bad thing to have two quality netminders locked up for the next couple of years. Giguere is the established veteran as he has won a Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe Trophy award.

While not young (26 years old), Hiller still has time to find his groove and become a sought after commodity in the summer of 2010. Aside from maybe Hiller opting to sign a one-year contract, the deal made complete sense for both sides.
