now THAT would be some sneaky, back room dealing -
"hey, Lou, we're gonna sign this guy, but we know he may not clear other teams waivers, but NJ has first billing of waivers and no cap space... so, yea, do us a solid and claim him and we will instantly trade you a pick for him, so you get a pick basically for just helping us out"


isnt that considered collusion?

unless language has changed in the CBA, you can. When Nashville claimed Doug Brown off waivers, the Wings immediately turned around and traded right back for him... Now if rules changed then so be it.


CBA 13.23 In the event a professional or former professional Player plays in a league outside North America after the start of the NHL Regular Season, other than on Loan from his Club, he may thereafter play in the NHL during that Playing Season (including Playoffs) only if he has first either cleared or been obtained via Waivers. For the balance of the Playing Season, any such Player who has been obtained via Waivers may be Traded or Loaned only after again clearing Waivers or through Waiver claim.

Unfortunately that sentiment is not shared by all on this site.


Do Hawks fans care about their team or do they just care about screwing the Wings?


Option C sir, they're just morons.

He played in Europe, and hasn't played since December.

So he CAN be traded right after. I wouldn't see why you can't do that.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Seriously, it's not forcing Ozzie out if Ozzie is going to be out the rest of the season. We need a backup. I doubt they're giving Nabby a multi-year deal. That would be forcing out Ozzie.

It basically is. Wings expect to go deep into the playoffs and guess who will be the one watching the game from the rafters when/if we have all three? If Nabokov get's signed Ozzie is done.

that would be my assumption, that Jimmy is still #1, Nabs is back-up, or more like 1A/1B. I would see a split.

Nabby's a very good goalie, he's played for teams which dragged him down to where he had nothing left. The Wings won't do that to him. He will shine here.

This thread is racing right along in GF. Does that mean it's not a rumor?

:unsure:


I hope it's true. Love me a Euro-goalie, you know? :blush:

The way we are playing defense that might not be all true. Also our crap play started before Datsyuk and Cleary went out.

One thing I do wonder is how long will it be before he gets a rhythm? I do remember that he starts off slow but gets better as the year goes on.

:thumbup: :thumbup:
I like this and it seems legit. The Wings 2nd rd pick this year could be number 60, if Nabby works flawlessly, and NJ has lost the likely 61st pick, if they stay in last place, because of the Kovy deal.

Thats my official guess. 2nd is steep, but for a vet goalie to solidify our run at possibly a bargain price.
2nd to Jersey for the freshly claimed Nabokov.

Maybe they want Hudler or Bertuzzi...? Maybe just wishful thinking on my part?

Technically, it should be:

But we're getting way off topic with the Office rants.

I would love to see Nabokov in the Winged Wheel. I'm really high on the tandem of Howard and Nabby, plus he could wear the mask someone already posted! Problem SOLVED.

Why the hell would you want to get rid of Bertuzzi with how he's played for us and with his very modest caphit?!?! That would be asinine ...

Lets get to the real important topic at hand that we're all overlooking...

what number would he wear?? :ph34r:

32 minutes of useless (mostly) offensive penalties? Turnovers galore?
I don't know his cap hit, I don't factor pay level in with my opinions of player ability.

Please, most of his penalties are based on reputation and his turnovers have been minimal... plus, lets see, a big body on pace for 50 pts a season at less than 2m a year caphit, who was one of our ONLY guys to play all 82 games last year and hasn't missed any this year, plus a good guy in the locker room... yea, who wants that?

back to the topic at hand... this doesn't need to be derailed, if you want to argue that Bert isn't pulling his weight, take it into another thread...

Wait... isn't 30 available now? :ph34r:

Too soon?

Seriously though, I wonder if he'd go with some weird number like 50 or something?
