Coach Mike Babcock was asked if he knew any details. "Absolutely nothing. And if I did, I wouldn't tell anything," he said.

laugh.gif ohhh Babs.

Jimmy sounds pissssssed.

Haha, yeah, he did sound a bit salty over the possibility of Nabby coming over. At least in those quotes they used.

Meh. This is all for nothing. Someone will claim him, it sucks.

Just like with Wellwood, and Svatos.

I am on your side....:thumbup:

Jimmy is a free agent after this year, is he not? If he is pissed, he can get a pretty sexy contract somewhere.

Well, Jimmy should realize that this is a bandage so he can heal properly... Why play a non 100% Jimmy or a not-so-good MacDonald, when Nabby will come in, have MacDonald as backup so Jimmy can heal. I understand him being scared though, because if Nabby comes in and plays stellar, Babcock will have no choice but to go with him in the payoffs... SOrry Jimmy. I do agree that McCrimmon HAS TO GO!

Whether we get Nabby or not, I'm sure Holland has a plan. Or else, he wouldn't waste his time with it.

Ever since it was confirmed that there were no bonuses involved, I've been of the mind that Holland is making a deal for Nabby to get him back into the league, and possibly a team low in the standings.

It's also possible, keep in mind, that Holland is setting up a free agent acquisition after this season. Nabby plays and gets back into NHL shape with a team this season, and in the off-season, he signs with us after Ozzie retires.

Ya, I know, but Miller could take another number, maybe Nabby will buy the number off Miller... Last I checked #18 was available, and Drew wore that in Anaheim. Unless the Wings are waiting for Hossa to be bought out! :ninja: -or- maybe they will retire it for Maltby? :ninja: :ninja:

Either Ozzie retires or Jimmy signs somewhere else.

Hossa wore 81.

I don't think there's any chance that Jimmy will sign anywhere else, frankly.

Nabby would be a backup if Ozzie retires, if not, he'll go to another team.

i dont think that quote makes him sound pissed at all? what am i missing?

Nothing, it's a matter of opinion and personal interpretation. No one is objectively right.

Here's the pecking order for waivers:

http://www.leftwinglock.com/nabokovs-waiver-process/

New Jersey

Edmonton

NY Islanders

Ottawa

Toronto

Calgary

Buffalo

Florida

Columbus

Los Angeles

San Jose

Carolina

Atlanta

St. Louis

Minnesota

Anaheim

Chicago

Phoenix

Colorado

NY Rangers

Montreal

Nashville

Washington

Tampa Bay

Boston

Pittsburgh

Dallas

Philadelphia

Vancouver

The Devils have no cap space but Edmonton has 12M available and I imagine they would bite to get Nabby. At the same time, we have plenty of what they need: veteran and/or winning experience. I wonder if Holland is negotiating with Edmonton to trade away a couple of our players, maybe a draft pick to reacquire Nabakov?

Someone had a great point on TSN forum, Detroit signs him to the 1 yr $570,000 ($250,000 prorated,) then (insert piece of s*** franchise here) picks him off waivers, then he signs with Detroit as a UFA come July 1st. Holland is Genius!

But if he has to clear waivers again, won't that just be a throwaway?

Hossa wore 81.

He wore 18 in Ottawa, Atlanta, and Pittsburgh, though. Switched to 81 upon his arrival in Detroit. Looks a lot better in the 81, anyway.

Here's how George Malik summarizes the saga on A2Y:

"Here’s what I know: Ken Holland is the consummate tire-kicker. He explores EVERY avenue, talks to EVERY GM about EVERY available player at the trade deadline, prior to the draft, and agents about prospective free agents’ asking prices...And he’s kicking tires here. We’ll have to see what happens over the next couple of hours and days. "
