<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>Yeah, great goalies on teams with porous defense corps end up looking average. Here's his 5v5 stats next to Edmonton's goalies for the past 1.5 seasons:

I don't see Edmonton giving up a lot for Gibson, TBH. Maybe he'll rebound, or maybe, like Matt Murray, the shooters have figured him out. But that's a lot of risk for a guy who isn't an upgrade on Mikko Koskinen.</div></div>

This really put everything into perspective but I do think Gibson is one of the best in the league and still has value. And his contract besides his NTC is still amount the best especially at his age,expiring at 33 has such little risk even if he continues to only okay as good has he has this past season and a half. But you can tell he doesn't like playing for ANA anymore. His lack of ambition to steal games is showing, he knows they won't win a cup. On a better team,m or a team in the verge of breaking out of the bubble and into playoff contention year after year like the Oilers may actually help him get his energy back and want to play better. And even if he gets half way back to how he was before these last few season the price it may cost to acquire him and his contract may be worth it. Buuuut it could be a huge risk as well.
