John Gibson linked to multiple Eastern Conference teams in potential blockbuster trade

John Gibson has now been linked to a Stanley Cup Contender in the Eastern conference, as well as another team in the playoff race, new reports suggest.

The Anaheim Ducks, despite a hot start, now sit eighth in the Pacific Division at 10-18-0. They've struggled to find the back of the net, only scoring 74 goals (30th) in 28 games. The team could be looking to make a big move soon, and Gibsons age does not fit their current young core.

John Gibson is one of the best goaltenders in the Western Conference. The 30-year-old has a 2.89 GAA and .904 SV% despite Anaheim's struggles. He would make an immediate impact for any team looking to make a run at the Stanley Cup, and we now know two teams that have been connected to the goaltender.

Devils show interest in Gibson

There have been rumors that the New Jersey Devils are strongly considering a trade for John Gibson, according to reports from New Jersey Hockey Now.

GM Tom Fitzgerald has re-engaged in John Gibson. The Devils are desperately searching for a number one goaltender, and Gibson would be the perfect fit for the team.

Sources say talks have resumed as the Ducks head on an East coast swing to play the Islanders, Rangers and Devils.

As talks with New Jersey heat up, another team also remains in the mix for Gibson.

Red Wings look to secure goaltender

The Red Wings are also in the mix, seeking a top goaltender. Detroit may have a slight edge as Ducks GM Pat Verbeek has ties to the Red Wings.

Ville Husso, despite a 9-4-2 record, has an abysmal 3.68 GAA and .886 SV%. As the starting goaltender for the Red Wings, his numbers are not putting the team in playoff contention.

If the Red Wings wish to go far in their 2023-24 campaign, they will need to put finding a starting goaltender at the top of their to-do list.

Currently, Gibson is in the fifth year of an eight-year $51.2 million deal that carries a ten team no-trade list.
