Quack, Quack, Quack - A Trio of Goalies to Choose from for the Playoffs

In the words of Bruce Boudreau, "We’re in position with three good goalies. I don’t think I can screw it up too bad whoever I choose.”

How would you like to be a SCP coach, and have this trio of goalies as a luxury.  This does not even include Victor Fasth who started the season with the Ducks.

John Gibson at the 2013 IIHF WC’s

A continent away, Europe's season ending championship is taking place, with teams sourced by the 17th through 30th best teams from the NHL. 

One player who is not from an NHL team is gathering some attention, this entry from the NYT Slap Shot Blog  discusses John Gibson at the 2013 IIHF World Championships.

It is rare for the United States to use a teenage goalie at the International Ice Hockey Federation world championships, and John Gibson’s performance in his tournament debut was of rare quality.

Gibson, a 19-year-old from Pittsburgh, made 31 saves to backstop the Americans to a 4-1 win over Finland on Wednesday. The Finns are co-hosting the tournament with Sweden this year, but he was unfazed by the boisterous, flag-waving crowd of 12,484 at Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena.

At 19, it is hard to tell how much seasoning he will need before the Anahiem Ducks have a goaltending logjam.
