John Gibson is someone that may be on the move sometime soon

John Gibson didn't get a cryptic tweet from Kevin Weekes like Jacob Markstrom and Elvis Merzlikins but there are still plenty of reasons to think that he could be traded soon.

For one, he is on a very bad team that doesn't do a lot of winning. The Anaheim Ducks have a lot of very good forwards to be excited about going forward but this is still very much a rebuilding year for them.

Gibson hasn't been amazing on this lousy team as he is just 8-17-0 with a 3.13 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage. These aren't unsalvagable stats if he starts to be better right now.

Getting to a good team might be the only way for him to do that. The Ducks are not good in their end and a different goalie might have even worse numbers than this on that team.

It is time for the two to separate. Gibson was there for a few good years with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry but he has also been there since they started to fall off. They have been very bad for a while now and his timeline doesn't match with theirs.

It is a bit of a risk to trade for Gibson because of his numbers but the team trading for him would likely be a good one that has a chance to win games. This team that acquires him needs to put him in the best chance to win.
