The Flames were very vocal about the need to add another NHL goalie heading into free agency and they managed to get one of the better options in former Duck Jonas Hiller.
His per year money is somewhat high at $4.5M/year, but the two year term makes that number moot. The dollars somewhat suggest that Hiller will at least be battling Ramo for the starters job, but for the Flames it's very much a case of "let the best man win" when it comes to their net situation.
The relatively high AAV also gets the Flames a little closer to the cap floor, which is also good news.
Another decent addition from Treliving.
