For obvious reasons the Sharks are stuck with with this situation mainly because NOBODY saw Toskala coming!
He did not get his role as a starter until JUST AFTER Nabokov signed his extension. Played too good for Ron Wilson to get Nabby back in.
Make no mistake, had Toskala not played so well (February - on) everyone would be convinced that Nabokov was paid a fair salary. It's not his fault that Toskala rode an incredible (Shark standards) streak.
Sure it's easy to say Nabokov is over-priced, but he's dam good. Olympic performance did not hurt either.
Not trying to sell you folks on him. If he stays in SJ that would be fine with me. Either way, SJ has a pretty good "problem" on their hands.
