It hasn't been confirmed, and of course it's only verbal at this point, but great signing for the Flyers if they can get it done.

Huge signing for them if true. They just need to manage his starts better than they were managed in San Jose.

So then, Nabokov/Boucher? Strong tandem. Definitely get you to the conference finals with a decent roster. And once you get there, who knows if they'll hold a series lead for you...

Good. Stronger goal-tending for the Pens to match up against in the East. Now just waiting for Turco to land in SJ.

Just to make sure it's clear, they have a verbal agreement to attain his negotiating rights.

They haven't reached any sort of deal with him yet, nor can they until they have the rights. It's far from a done deal that he ends up there.

Edit: I do think he'll end up signing there though.

Sarcasm right? It "definitely" didn't get the Sharks anywhere in the last 6-7 years although they did make the conference finals twice losing 4-2 and 4-0.
Do or do not. There is no try

maybe all Nabokov needed was a new atmosphere? I think he will do well in Philly...if they can reach the Cup Final with Leighton, they can surely do it with Nabokov...but I guess he doesnt have a good track record... :ph34r:

Awesome. This is great news! I am so excited. As long as they manage his playing time better so he isn't worn out come playoff time. This could be huge! Go Philly!

If they can get creative and move Danny for something cheaper on the back end that helps... fit Nabs under the cap... They might have the cup next season. Really they have absurd riches up front, but that goaltending was really not there.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I wouldn't want to sacrifice the leading scorer from the playoffs for Nabokov, but they do need a goalie. Given that somebody up front probably has to move, I'd make it Hartnell. He's great, but outside of this year's playoffs he's never had the numbers (regular season or playoffs) to justify paying him over 4 million given their current cap issues. I'm sure many other teams would be more than happy to have a guy like that at that price though.

Edit: Apparently it doesn't matter anyways, since Nabokov wants too much.

The reason it needs to be Danny that gets moved is look at their forward group. Giroux, Van Rimesdyk, Leino, Carter, Richards, Briere, and I am sure I am forgeting someone. Danny is a natural center, and they already have two fantastic ones and three young wingers. They should trade him who just happens to be the oldest guy, and collecting one of the bigger paychecks on the club. His value is never going to be this high again. I am not saying you trade him for Nabokov, but you can trade him and get something good in return. Remember they are a cap hurtting team.

I agree Hartnell is getting old, but I am just speaking realistically. At some point in the future they need to move someone, because there is no way they keep all of those guys. Might as well move him now and get the biggest bang for the buck.

I think he's going to find that division is a lot more physical with their goaltenders. I can't see him lasting any longer than Emery, and he'll cost a lot more. I could see him doigng well in a plce like Dallas more than Philly.

But who knows. If the Flyers don't get him, maybe the Hawks will try to fit him in in their negative cap room. :hehe:

But they don't lose the 7th pick then, am I right? I thought the deal went through only if they were manage to sign him.
