Earlier this offseason NHL Rumors were making the rounds that the Edmonton Oilers had been looking to upgrade their goaltending. Reports had the Oilers inquisitive about Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson.
Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reviews Edmonton Oilers’ GM Ken Holland says he believes in his goaltending, “however there’s no question an improve is something he’d strongly keep in mind — and something that’s much more likely than no longer to arise.”
Nugent-Bowman went on to mention, that both Marc-Andre Fleury and John Gibson may be at the Oilers’ radar. With the awful begin the Chicago Blackhawks have had and if they're not a playoff contender after the primary 25 games, Fleury should waive his modified no-trade clause and take delivery of a change to a Stanley Cup contending team.
Gibson could be a harder change to make as he has 5 more years on his contract plus a changed no-exchange clause. The Anaheim Ducks might need a hefty charge which can be a great roster player, first spherical draft select and a pinnacle prospect.
