Picture of John Gibson. Will the Penguins make a trade for him?
If the Pittsburgh Penguins decide to part ways with Tristan Jarry, they will target Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson this offseason.

Changes need to happen if the Pittsburgh Penguins want to make the playoffs next season and one change could be in net.

Current Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer and NHL trade rumors are making the rounds that the Penguins may look to other options rather tan re-signing him to a new deal.

Will the Pittsburgh Penguins make a trade for John Gibson?

Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette states with Tristan Jarry’s injury history and disastrous playoff history, it may be time for the Penguins to look at other options.

Starkey went on to say that the Penguins should make a trade for Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson. He feels the Pens should go all-in and he needs a change of scenery.

Gibson is a franchise goalie, he just happens to be stuck on one of the worst teams in the league over the past few years.

Gibson does carry a hefty $6.4 million contract for the next four years and has a 10 team no trade clause. Gibson is a Pittsburgh native and you would have to think he would welcome a trade to the Penguins.

What are Penguins fans saying about a potential John Gibson trade?

Gibson is a reclamation project. I would not give up a ton of assets if the Pens do decide to make a trade offer.

Should’ve traded for Gibson at trade deadline instead of Granlund. Much better use of cap space and probably could’ve had him for the same second round pick.

The Pens should use Rust’s perceived 1st line status in a trade for a goalie!!
