Everybody seems to think that he won't clear waivers, but I don't see why he wouldn't... Every other team could have negotiated with him and didn't. That, and the fact that Holland is no dummy, leads me to believe that he will clear and be a wing.

Well that was before Detroit showed some interest in him. You know there are teams that will want to pick him up just for the fact Detroit wont be able to. And he;s not a bad goalie to have. so it would be win win for a lot of teams that are going to be first in line for him.

Article just posted to Detroit Red Wings.com ... just the rumor report. But why would Detroit post that rumor if there wasn't more to it?

One unnecessary remark deserves another.

The fatigue/starting too much issue was already mentioned in my initial response. We're not disagreeing here.

That's awesome to hear coming from a mod.

Being asked to start almost every regular season game is more than fatigue. It's irresponsible on the team's part. So yes, we are disagreeing. It's the sole reason why he wasn't able to perform at his best in the playoffs. So whatever you meant by "fatigue or whatever" I am disagreeing with. There is no whatever in this case and it's more than basic fatigue.

What about getting him by having to pay 1/2 his salary ... 50% discount?

A team claiming him would have to pay his full salary. Only on re-entry waivers does a team pay half a players salary that you are referring to.

ding, ding... and his agent could still play hardball too and put out a feeler to other teams that
A. If anyone claims him, he'll retire
and
B. If they piss off the agent, he'll make them pay later when it comes to signing another one of his clients...

Never underestimate that as well... this rumor is starting to pick up serious steam if it is on the Wings official page...

I would absolutely love to see Nabby on the wings, I've always liked him. I guess the brass isn't so high on Jimmy. Interesting.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Doesn't have to mean that at all... he can be a backup/1b option... if anything it tells me that they're not too high on Ozzie returning...

I think it's because Osgood is done for the year (and likely career) and MacDonald would not be very good backup come playoff time. Not to mention Howard played like crap lately.

Could you imagine how hard Jimmy would have to work with Nabby right behind his back? This is a good move on so many levels.

This.

I just said to my friend that this is like a poor man's 1A/1B from the '08 Cup run. I think Nabby/Howard is a great 1-2 punch and would anticipate them splitting games the rest of the way. I can't possibly imagine that they'd bring in Nabby and just bench Howard.

No more Joey? Sign me up.

If he ends up clearing waivers, I'm feeling a lot better about our team. Of course he'll probably immediately tear a groin muscle when he first steps on the ice for the Wings. /reverse jinx!

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Agreed. If howard keeps playing hit and miss like he's doing. If we were to get nabby i could see us going with him for sure.

The Wings NEED another goalie. Osgood has been living on IR for the last two years and Howie can't/shouldn't play every night. If Howie gets injured in the playoffs, you can't turn to a guy that's keeps getting injured and would you really want the season hanging on Joey MacDonald? Nabby and Howie would be a great tandem and it would keep them fresh into the playoffs.

That's what I'm thinking too. Ozzie's probably done, that's probably the #1 reason why we're getting Nabokov. No way he'll be the starter, the KHL is a step down, it takes times for players to get back into the NHL ways, Hudler is a perfect example.

It's a low risk move, but could turn out to be a great one!

Edit: Also it says Nabokov hasn't played anywhere since December 13th. He'll be the back up.

Report: Nabokov bound for Detroit?

Not that it would be beyond any GM to lie about the state of things, but at this point Kenny says that Ozzie will return.

No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock
