That's why I'm voting Muzzin, he may not have the potential to be a top pairing d-man but he's pretty close to ready to be a 2nd or 3rd pairing d-man on the kings and that to me puts him higher than any of Voinov, Deslauriers, Forbort, or Hickey. I'd have Gibson right around the area that I'd have Berube as both of them have potential to be good to great but both are no where near reaching that potential yet.

Also add Holloway.
You make a very good point. Jones has made a lot of progress toward reaching his potential while Gibson hasn't. But, I would much rather have a guy that has, say, a 50% chance of becoming a very good #1 goaltender than a guy that has an 80% chance of becoming a good back-up.
