Will the Oilers Pursue John Gibson After Lightning Him Up?

NHL Trade Talk


Following their commanding 7-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, the Edmonton Oilers got a much closer look at a potential trade target in goaltender John Gibson. Gibson’s name has been swirling in trade rumors, and the Ducks might be open to parting ways with him. The Oilers, in need of goaltending reinforcements with Jack Campbell unavailable, are weighing the pros and cons of pursuing Gibson.

But, if Gibson is actually available, how much does a performance like Sunday night weigh into the Oilers’ considerations of him as a possible acquisition? Does one game make that much of a difference?

The Positives of Gibson to the Oilers:

One major positive is Gibson’s potential impact on the Oilers’ goaltending situation. Despite the 7-2 loss, Gibson showcased his ability to make crucial saves, and his overall performance this season has been commendable, boasting a .904 save percentage (counting the seven goals he let in). The Oilers, grappling with subpar goaltending all season, see an opportunity to shore up their last line of defense.
