That's my concern as well...The Blues had 2 recently signed guys claimed (Svatos, and Wellwood) so maybe they'll be out for revenge?

yea, and what would they do with Conklin? I'd rather have Nabby, but I'd take Conklin back with open arms too... plus, didn't Conklin have a NMC?

EDIT - Just checked, Conklin has a standard contract...

I think it's just because people are finally getting to talk about Red Wings news that isn't injury related.


I'm with you. The injuries have been non stop slaps in the face. I think Nabokov would be a good backup for Jimmy. It's a solid backup and also someone he can compete with cause you know Nabokov wants to start so he is going to bust his ass to work for the spot and that is going to push Jimmy to better and stop giving up weak goals.

I think if this deal goes down Holland has a trade in place with whatever lower ranked team might claim him.

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?


I love this. It's on the Red Wings' page, but they're quoting TSN and NHL.com. Like, "Whoa! Really? That's news to us! :cool: "

"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.

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"

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


If anybody can git 'er done, Kenny can. :thumbup:

I don't see this as forcing out. I see it as the Wings covering their own butts for if Howard goes down again or if Ozzie cannot come back.

Force out would be if Ozzie was healthy and they did this.

Ozzie's body crapped out on him this year, that is what would be forcing him out, not this move.



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.

I guess I was thinking that he will be back this season. It's definitely not forcing him out if he stays on the IR the rest of the season, only if he truly can't play. He was really starting to play well. I do understand the need to look for a goalie since we just had first hand experience with both of our goalies out to injury and the backups not being very solid.

you can't immediately trade a player right after you claim them on waivers.

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.


He is a better goalie then Howard IMHO. Howards was a s*** show in the playoffs last year at the worst time too. A fresh start in Detroit could be just what Nabby needs... I love this if it happens. Goalie 1a and 1b again... dueling for the starting spot making each other fight harder!

Confirmed Daren Dreger's report that Red Wings close to signing Nabokov. But there are teams that will consider picking him up on waivers.


So what happens if Nabokov doesn't want to go to the team that claims him?

I love this. It's on the Red Wings' page, but they're quoting TSN and NHL.com. Like, "Whoa! Really? That's news to us! :cool: "

Haha yea, the Wings are the ones making the news and they're quoting other sources!

That could also be due to the fact that he played probably 3/4 of the season. He was over worked last year.

I do agree though that having that competition would make Hboth of them better goalies.

WAIT A MINUTE! For all you Osgood haters out there that argue the only reason he has 400 wins is because he played for Detroit! Now, you say Nabby isn't that good, and shouldn't be signed, but then you say "ANYONE can be good in Detroit, even my grandmother can play goal for Detroit." Well here we have a great goalie wanting to play here were ANYONE can play (that is the ONLY reason Osgood has 400 wins right?) so maybe Nabby can come in a be SPECTACULAR! Besides if someone can win as much as he can and NOT play for Detroit, he should be AWESOME here, because Detroit wins in spite of the goalie and not because of, right? Remember, ANYONE can be goalie here and THE ONLY reason Osgood has 400 wins is because of where he played... So if Nabby can play that great NOT in Detroit, just think (using your guys' logic) how great he would be here?!?!?! Get it done Kenny! Because if Osgood can win here, ANYONE can! :ninja:

you can't immediately trade a player right after you claim them on waivers.

sorry to burst your bubble, guys.

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.

Hey here's a thought, Holland had to know Nabokov would get claimed. Maybe he knows something about Nabokov, like he's done, and wants to screw over another team?

Heh heh heh.
