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

Just like with Wellwood, and Svatos.

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

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?

The team that claims him, can't trade him away or else he'll have to pass through Waivers again.

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

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.

Would he have to clear waivers again? I'm kind of foggy on the rules after a waiver acquisition. I was under the impression that if a team signs someone off waivers, they are 100% a part of the active roster of the new team (maybe this is wrong?).

edit: thanks for the clarification 10min

I am just saying I think he's right.... Do you think he will make it here? and Be honest ! for 250,000 (pro-rated) come on!

If he does...GREAT! But I am only human to have doubts.... Especially when I see all the teams that have to say ..

" Hmm Nabokov......PASS!" I just don't see THAT many teams passing on him

why cant nabby just say he will take the rest of the season off if someone else claims him?

even if he did that then some teams would probably do it anyways if it really is only 570k

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. "

Holland is more than a consummate tire-kicker. He's the consummate GM. He would have never let this whole thing go to press unless he had a plan that would ultimately benefit the Detroit Red Wings.

In Kenny I Trust. :thumbup:

Then a team will claim him just to keep him away from Detroit.

What if he is dressed for a game or 2 (or 10), then traded?

I honestly think that is what is keeping me glued as possible to this thing! :lol: I have to know WHAT is he thinking? and WHY?!?!?!?!?

Why WOULD he do this.. any team can offer him a deal and let him get claimed.... WHY Holland and Detroit! That is what I don't understand and am waiting Impatiently to find out.

Or he is using all this great "advice" from the "LGW waiver wire crack team", and we are teaching him how the whole thing goes.

It's a certain time period, not just playing a few games. If I recall, after the FA period is over, players have to pass through waivers if they aren't signed in that period until the end of the season (i.e. through the playoffs).

Thus Nabby would still have to pass through waivers.

He's picked up by NJ, then the Wings trade Hudler for Hedberg and Clarkson.

esteef

I imagine that's the angle Holland is hoping for. Make an unbelievably appealing contract for an elite goalie, which forces some other goalie out to the trading block.

Why even bother with this contract if Wings do not expect him to clear waivers?

That's exactly it. There's something more here than $570,000 for Nabokov. There has to be something more in play, or he wouldn't make it past New Jersey. I could see Nabokov saying he wouldn't play elsewhere, which is the one way I can make it work.

Can we get his name corrected on the thread title?

Yeah, as of right now I don't even believe any of the 17 pages of contract clause discussions until that takes place.
