Maybe Kenny has a deal with a lower-ranked team to claim him and then trade some pieces for him. i.e. Hudler, Kindl

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

Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Nabby is a solid goaltender, but he can only do so much when he is asked to start a ton. Recent history has shown that work horse goalies are shaky at best in the playoffs. It's not Nabby's fault that his team overworked him.

Your first mistake was trusting something on HFboards.

Nabby's not a great goalie, there aren't really any in the NHL right now that hit that standard (elite, legendary, etc. do not really apply to any I can think of).

However, he's a great guy, and would thrive with a team like the (healthy) Red Wings in front of him. We could absolutely do worse. He'd fit our system well, character-wise, also. I know him best from San Jose and he flat out carried them, a lot. Kipper left because the Sharks were so dependent on Nabby, he never got ice time.

As for Ozzie, this sounds suspiciously like retirement to me. Guess we will see...

Forced retirement :(

If he's going to be good for the team then I'm all for it, I just hate that they'd be forcing Osgood out sort of like they did back in 2001.

Thanks Offsides

No. That team would have to put him on waivers before trading.

Who would steal him away through waivers?

maybe there is some kind of unwritten rule of the waivers where you dont steal players... haha maybe not


St. Louis lost 2 players through re-entry Svatos to Preds and Wellwood to Sharks - NHL.com Report - Wellwood Svatos so I don't think there are any 'gentlemen's agreement' in the NHL.

So isn't the wavier order by standings...team with the lowest percentage of points possible gets first crack, then so on?

I believe this is correct. In which case it sucks for us!

Let's see (not including all the teams who aren't going to make playoffs) what about Colorado, Atlanta, Washington, even San Jose, Nabby would be an upgrade to any of those team's present goalies.

If you include the bottom feeders, .. Leafs :lol: , New Jersey, Islanders, Senators, Calgary, Edmonton ...

So there are plenty of interested teams, maybe 26 other ones who has a lower winning % than us ... which makes me wonder why they haven't tried signing him yet.

McKenzie:

Nabokov update: Close to a deal in DET in one sense but still some issues to be sorted out. So please be clear: no agreement in place yet.

Great example you're setting as a mod. Let's stick to the topic on hand and not resort to petty insults.

Makes you think maybe the possibilities of him clearing are greater since none of those teams have signed him. Either way Kenny probably has something up his sleeve.

Would be pretty cool if he clears.

Probably won't, though.

Just heard on NHL live. If they can get him at a good price, :thumbup:.



LOVE your avatar. :lol: Meanwhile, I can't open the Twitter links, but from what I've read here, it may be a Happening? :shocking:

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
