Well if he can get through waivers, this might turn out to be one hell of a steal. I think the problems in SJ didn't start & end with Nabby in goal like some would believe. I do think the move says less about the organization's belief in Howard & more about Ozzie's injury status.

Yeah, per Bob McKenzie - the waiver rule applies to anyone coming over from Europe. Otherwise teams could hide players in Europe until the start of the season.

Nabby won't make it to the Wings. Someone will claim him, if only to screw the Wings.

Nabby is a pretty damn good regular season goalie, he can start 70 games and have very good numbers. Playoffs have been different for him but he was on those Shark teams that have always choked big time.


Nabokov was a part of the problem for those teams. Blame it on fatigue or whatever, he hasn't proven that he, personally, is able to step up his game in the postseason.

I doubt he'll clear waivers anyway.

It's hard to step up in the playoffs when you are asked to play damn near every regular season game.

Yeah, that's why the phrase FATIGUE was included in the post.

Says he works for RDS. RedWingsFeed isn't the official Wings Twitter, though.

Too good to be true. I like it if he makes it into Red Wings uniform but it will never happen if waiver rule applies. Why would Holland even try this ... he knows someone will claim him. Teams like Washington, Atlanta, Colorado, or even San Jose could use him. Doesn't the stupid CBA rule say Wings will pay 1/2 and other team pays 1/2 of salary. If this was such a good find, why didn't some of those teams sign him already? I like it but I don't like our chances of getting him pass waivers.

Wow, this certainly implies that Osgood is done for the season - get Nabakov back before the all-joke break so he can get skating and shake off the rust. Unless they plan on trading Hudler for a bag of pucks or burying him in the minors his salary can't be more than ~$1M

I would imagine that if a non-playoff team claims him, he'll just refuse to report, but if a contender claims him just to stiff us can the Wings make a complaint for a malicious waiver pick up?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I'd like it if it were true.
