Per Detroit Red Wings official twitter account. @DetroitRedWings

Deal is one-year, pro-rated $570,000 as rumored earlier today.

He'll be placed on waivers at 12 noon ET tomorrow. If no team puts in a waiver claim for him he will be a Red Wing officially at 12:01pm on Saturday.

Update (1/22 @ 12:02p): The New York Islanders have claimed Nabokov off waivers.

Already read on twitter that the Islanders are talking internally about claiming him.

I'd hate to be Nabby thinking that he's going to Detroit and then get claimed by the Islanders.

If he makes it to NY.. NJ could claim him first and then move him or Hedburg...

I will be excited on Saturday...

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

No matter what, there was a point to this. We just may not find out the actual one until this offseason.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Ozzie is worse off then was expected and they didn't want to say anything yet?

I'm sure he's well aware that a bottom feeder will be interested. Question is, can he turn down all other offers?

Yeah, what about all this from the player's point of view? How much clout and input does he get, if any?
