Ellis or Emery will get the bulks of the starts in Anaheim.
With this trade, I think Hiller is gone for a while....

Ellis needed a fresh start - they are likely going to platoon the rest of the way until Hiller's vertigo issues disappear.

Ugh, just picked up Emery too. Not too thrilled as a Tampa fan either, but if we waive him/Roloson gets the bulk of the starts I guess it's good to get that extra million off our cap (for Richards duh :D) . Good chance Smith comes back up again so no worries really.

Good deal for the ducks. Who does TB have in the wings nearly ready?

Smith could come back up, or Desjardins played great when he was called up. Next year I imagine we re-sign Roloson to a short deal or a UFA goalie and have Desjardins/Tokarski back up, then have them split time the next year.

Cedric Desjardins.. remember him? Did amazing when called up and then when Rolie came, they sent him back down.

Ellis or Emery? Who gets most of the starts? I am thinking about picking up Ellis with my last few moves now that I have Emery. Then I can roll with Brodeur, Rinne, Emery, and Ellis..and drop Elliot..and keep Giguere on IR just incase.

Whoever starts tomorrow will probably see more starts, but if neither does exceptional they'll probably just platoon. Don't pick up Ellis, you don't need 4 goalies anyways and you certainly don't need 5.
