All of you 'he won't clear waivers' people realize that Ken Holland has some pretty insane clout within the NHL, right? I'm sure anyone taking Nabby off waivers would have to be prepared to be on his s***-list for awhile. You never know when you might need a 'favor' from another team. This might just get him through waivers.
And as was mentioned earlier, if Nabby doesn't want to play anywhere else, there are things he can do to teams that attempt to pick him up off of waivers.

Just my opinion.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Wow, mobile version of this site is SLICK!

This would give us an awesome 1/2 punch in the playoffs. I've always been a huge fan of Nabby, so I fully support this, at the right price.

I want this move to happen just to give Howard a kick in the butt... Adding the goalie that took you out in last years playoffs in a 4-1 series should light a fire under him. Just like a lot of players do, when you are not being challenged you tend to slow down and get complacent. Well hopefully this goes through he doesn't get claimed and either Howard gets his A game back or Nabby shows what he can do with a good rotation and not 70+ games a season.

With our luck, either Chicago or San Jose (:lol:) will claim him.

I'm also hoping that Wings fans will finally learn to spell his name. This is just as bad as "Federov". :P

McKenzie:

My guess, and it's only that, is DET and Nabokov have a deal they can live with, but remains to be seen whether contract is legal per CBA.

The ace in the hole?

McKenzie:

Guessing there is something in deal to "discourage" other teams from claiming Nabby on waivers, but will it fly with NHL? Just a guess tho.

Ho ho, and to think I underestimated you, Kenneth. What delightful little loophole are you sneaking through now?

Is that why Stevie laid off claiming Ritola off waivers? Oh wait...

Getting ahead of myself, but he will backup Jimmy, correct? Assuming Ozzie's injury puts him out as long as stated. Or will they split the role as our goalies have done in the past?

but do Chicago, San Jose, and other teams have the cap room for him?

How long is he on waivers for? Will teams up against the cap have enough time to make him fit under the cap? Holland has had a lot of time to figure this out, other teams may just run out of time.

Could Chicago even afford him? I thought they learned their lesson during the offseason.

MAKE IT SO, number one.

I can buy the idea that Detroit is leaning a bit to make sure that they get Nabokov. In the old days of NASCAR, the Petty family did the same. If they said they wanted to sign a guy to the team, nobody, and I mean nobody would touch them. It was never spoken, but it would be two kisses on the cheeks, Don Corleone style. There would be blood.

I don't think Holland was pissed that Ritola was claimed off waivers, honestly. It's not like we got screwed out of an all-star.
