I just hope he's not bad when he's (at) Nationwide.

As a fourth line wing I think he is a direct replacement for DMac. Great hustle. I'll miss D-Mac's hitting though. D'Amigo and Gibbons don't finish nearly as many hits.

This is fantastic news. We should have a pretty good fourth line if Gibbons plays as well for us as he did against us. None of Tropp, Boll, D'Amigo, Hjalmarsson, and Gibbons are as sure bets as Mackenzie is, but between them we'll probably have a good set of fourth line wings around Letestu.

If he becomes the new MacKenzie, this is a great deal by JK.

I didn't realize he played with Cam in college.

@Aportzline

"#CBJ RW Brian Gibbons (upper and/or lower body) must have been medically cleared. He's on waivers, will go to @TheFalconsAHL if he clears."

Welp, that was a great 4th line pick up.

I think that's just proof of how good our team is if a quality player like Gibbons cannot find a spot here.

I think he gets claimed. Maybe even by PIT

I think he was injured early in the pre-season, because we never really saw his blazing speed. He seemed to be lacking his normal explosiveness. The guy has a lot of NHL potential, lets not write the book on him because of a bad pre-season.

This is a great underrated signing and I'm glad he went to a pretty likeable team with a good fanbase. Hope he makes the squad
