Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Does anyone know what would happen if Nabokov tells any other team that claims him off waivers to ' :censored: off'?

Would he have to wait for the off season to re-sign with us?

No matter what, there was a point to this. We just may not find out the actual one until this offseason.

He probably just wanted a chance to play in the NHL again. Nothing like having the Red Wings wanting to sign a player for other teams to take interest in him, with a small price tag on top of that.

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

Just Hedberg, if they try to trade Nabby they have to waive him first, all season, no matter how much he plays :(

We can not get Nabokov unless every team passes, I just don't see that happening.

can't nabokov refuse to play for the team that claims him? what would happen then?

They'd still own his rights until he fulfilled the contract, esentially forcing him into retirement...

Does a 1 year deal signed halfway through the year essentially mean a half year deal until the end of this season, or is it 1 year as in 365 days from teh date signed?

You do not need to expose a player to waivers to trade them...

OK here is my take on the timeline

12:00 Nabokov officially hits the Re-entry waiver wire

12:01 Nabokov is claimed

Done!

His contract will be over at the end of this season.

Nabby can't play in the AHL, and if he was claimed off waivers by another team and than traded to us he would have to clear wavers again. If he doesn't clear tomorrow there is no way we could get him back.

This is just weird. I can't imagine that there's not more to this. Either Holland has reason to believe Nabokov will not get claimed or there's something else going on. I just can't imagine they would do this only to see him claimed Friday afternoon.

This has to have been planned... I wonder if someone has made a deal with the Wings to get this done...

Or maybe they were planning on trading for him right of the bat. Or maybe they really just wanted to play the long shot, or maybe they were using voodoo to stop people from claming him...

I am just confused...

Bob McKenzie Twitter...

Nabokov's agent Don Meehan sent a letter to all NHL teams prior to signing saying Nabokov wants to be able to compete as a starter.

This was a favor for Meehan plain and simple

this all makes my head spin. It's like Nabby is a white elephant gift, and we have to wait til people get done claiming him, until he's dead and we can keep him?

:D

I think I will just wait for Saturday to be happy or sad about this.

Kind of risky though. Ken and Mickey were saying that Nabby cannot be sent down to the minors, and we already established that he can't be traded unless he hits the waiver wire again. Is it worth the risk to waste one of two, maybe three available slots on a goalie who refuses to play for you?

Granted, I doubt Nabby cares as much as we do where he ends up. I expect he's looking at the remainder of this year as an audition for next year.

So if a team was at their roster or salary cap limit and wanted to acquire Nabokov, would they first have to move a player, then pick up Nabby, or could they pick up Nabby first and go over the roster/cap limit for a couple hours to a day while they sort things out?

On that note: are there any teams who are so close to the Cap or are at their roster limit that picking up Nabby isn't feasible right now?

NTC as well so no waivers again without her permission after his mandatory first round.

McKenzie:

Nabokov has a No Move clause in his contract with DET. Cannot be put on waivers (after tomorrow, which is req'd) without his permission
