Those who say this is too much for an AHL goalie aren't seeing the full picture. Anaheim needs a goalie to expose to Seattle, as others have noted, Ryan Miller is probably going to retire at the end of this season so Anaheim will need a backup in 2021-2022 and Stolarz is the prime internal candidate for that slot, and the facts that there will be several better goalies available (Jake Allen, Anton Khudobin and Vancouver's, to name just 3) and a couple of nice young Ducks forwards or LDs to choose from make the chances of Seattle selecting Stolarz pretty slim. So this is a very good move for the future.
