Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports Edmonton Oilers’ GM Ken Holland says he believes in his goaltending, “but there’s no question an upgrade is something he’d strongly consider — and something that’s more likely than not to occur.”
Nugent-Bowman went on to say, that both Marc-Andre Fleury and John Gibson could be on the Oilers’ radar. With the awful start the Chicago Blackhawks have had and if they are not a playoff contender after the first 25 games, Fleury could waive his modified no-trade clause and accept a trade to a Stanley Cup contending team.
Gibson could be a tougher trade to make as he has five more years on his contract plus a modified no-trade clause. The Anaheim Ducks would want a hefty price which could be a good roster player, first round draft pick and a top prospect.
