#20 - Christopher Gibson

Christopher Gibson is the lowest ranked goaltender on our list. In theory, this wouldn't be a particularly good look, but in practice, the young trio have played so well that they've improved our emphasis on the position in the midterms. Gibson is having a pretty strong year as the Marlies' time-splitter; over 22 games, he's posted a 0.918 save percentage and earned himself a shutout.

The St. Louis Blues have enjoyed good luck trading with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the recent past - Alex Steen for Lee Stempniak anyone? Anybody? Hello? - so it makes sense that Doug Armstrong and company might be interested in transacting with the Maple Leafs again in the not too distant future.

Beyond the respective club's recent transaction logs, the two teams could fit as trade partners simply because of where they're at in their respective rebuilding cycles. The Maple Leafs, as we know, are in long-term thinking mode, if not all-out tear down mode. The Blues meanwhile have been knocking on the door for a few years, but haven't been out of the second round yet. Potential buyer, meet potential seller.

Let's get into it further on the other side of the jump.

Last night and this morning, I asked you all if you had any questions - I actually took a few weeks off of the mailbag in hopes that everybody would stop asking about the same three subjects. It worked! But I feel like a few people were disappointed in last night's results in another sport...
