John Gibson stated he didn’t talk to the Ducks about a trade
Eric Stephens of The Athletic: Spoke with Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson and he stated that he isn’t searching for a trade and stated that report that he spoke to the Ducks about a trade are not real.
“All of the rumors that I got in a call from Kurt yesterday are false because I haven’t had a conversation with anybody there. None of that is true.”
Gibson when asked if he desires a trade.
“No. I want to win in Anaheim. I’ve been here and I’m happy to be here.”
The 28-year-old Gibson has actually 5 years left on his offer at a $6.4 million cap hit and a 10-team no-trade provision.
Gibson might not wish to move however it doesn’t suggest the Ducks wouldn’t trade him. The sense is they aren’t aiming to trade him and are they aren’t shopping him. The Ducks are likewise conscious that there might be some competing groups who have an interest in Gibson.
If the Ducks have the ability to get a substantial deal for him, they need to a minimum of think about moving him.
