<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jluqueSF</b></div><div>bigger question for Ducks fans, what about a Nylander + Woll/Scott (+ aux. pcs) for Gibson (and aux. pcs) ?
Nylander can be the offensive replacement to Getz/Rakell; Leafs need a long term G (at a great $); Ducks could UFA a bridge goalie (or have the $$ for Binnington/anderson), and then have a young goalie in the system (if they don't already?)</div></div>
Gibby would be a particularly expensive goalie to acquire honestly maybe even more than other top 5 goalies. Gibby is a goalie who on any other team would perennially be in Vezina contention, he is young, and he is locked up for 7 year for less than 7 mill, even to other comparable goalies are typically getting pains ~10 mil. Also this trade comes in much different circumstances than the Andersen trade, as ANA has no need to trade him and thus has the upper hand in negotiations. With this in mind I wouldn’t be necessarily be surprised if the deal was Nylander, a 1st, and a decent prospect like Niemela. Of course it’s a goalie trade so who the hell really knows, but just considering ANAs situation, his youth and his cheap cap hit, it would probably be expensive, he is literally our only elite player rn.
Some of the people in this thread need to chill out a bit,
People are far too reactionary at WJC performances, it’s not something you base your entire perception of a prospect off of, if Caufield, Byfield or Zegras went entirely scoreless this WJC while it may be disappointing and many raise a couple red flags with me I would still refuse to say they are busts, based on 7 weird games. World juniors are good to observe prospects sure but they really only tell a small story, for example, coming into this tourney I was expecting zegras to put on a passing clinic but coming out of it I’m seeing that he has really taken his shooting to a new level and may bring some goal scoring touch to the NHL, and that isn’t even because of his goals but rather my observations of the increased quality and use of his shot, people should change their perception of the world juniors as a place to see who will be the best prospect and instead use it to see how a prospect uses their skills, essentially the WJC won’t tell you a prospect career success but it may tell you what they’ve improved on or what they were already good at, take pieces of the cake not the whole thing.
