NHL insider Elliotte Friedman drops a bombshell: the Detroit Red Wings are reportedly in hot pursuit of Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson.

The rumor mill is churning, and it’s spitting out a potential blockbuster trade that could shake up the NHL landscape.

According to trusted NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, the Detroit Red Wings have set their sights on acquiring Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson.

Friedman, speaking on the Jeff Marek Show, revealed that the Red Wings are actively seeking a goaltender upgrade, and Gibson has emerged as their prime target.

NHL Trade Rumors: Is John Gibson Detroit-Bound?

This news comes as no surprise, as Detroit’s goaltending situation has been a point of concern for the franchise. While Alex Lyon showed promise last season, the Red Wings are clearly looking for a more established and reliable presence between the pipes.

Gibson, a former Vezina Trophy finalist, would undoubtedly fit that bill. With his pedigree and experience, he would instantly elevate the Red Wings’ goaltending to a whole new level. However, as Friedman noted, the Ducks are hesitant to retain any of Gibson’s salary, which could complicate negotiations.

This potential trade raises several questions. What would the Red Wings be willing to give up for Gibson? Would the Ducks demand a king’s ransom for their star goaltender? And how would Gibson fit into Detroit’s long-term plans? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: this trade rumor has the potential to send shockwaves through the NHL.
