NASHVILLE, TN – MAY 18: John Gibson

10. John Gibson-

John Gibson made his NHL debut at the tender age of 21 years old against the Vancouver Canucks. In that game, he shut out the opposition and played as the Ducks starter for the rest of the season. Since then, Gibson has moved up the depth chart from third string goalie to starter in a matter of three short years. Most recently, Gibson was the backbone of the Anaheim Ducks and their finish in the third spot in the Western Conference.

Gibson is placed at number 10 because, despite his solid numbers, he is still too young to be holding a place in the top five. Also, his high danger save percentage, (HDSv%) is considered below standard as he currently holds an 80% average in that category. Other than that, the 24-year-old is robust and above normal in other categories.

However, Gibson and his inability to make critical saves when it counts, unfortunately, put him at the bottom of our list.
