pierre's name seems to come up everytime there is a GM opening. but given how he is perceived (at least by the fans), i wonder how other GM's and management from other teams view him. will they take him seriously???

I don't know... Won't they have to make sure he won't trade away the team for Dion Phaneuf, Jonathan Toews and what's his face in Pittsburgh? He'll be all, "I have a Big Three!" and everyone else will say, "This isn't the NBA..."

According to Islander fans, Holland will trade a 1st round draft pick + Hudler for Nabokov next year...

Anything more than a 3rd round pick would be absurd, unless part of a salary dump.

They could shop him to other teams though, which might bring up his value, but, I think the GM's have learned they will have to approve the move with Nabokov.

3rd or maybe two 4th rounders if there are other bidders. Anything more and we should just try to hire someone else to back up Howard.

Time to rescue Conklin?

I am so sick of those putrid Islanders. If cheapo Mr. Wang wants to play hardball perhaps Kenny upsets their applecart by dangling an offersheet to Tavares this summer... <_<

If I were Nabby I would report to the Islanders and take a nap in the crease during my first game. Not even attempt to make a save, let in 7 goals on his first 8 shots as an Islander. Just to piss Garth Snow and Charles Wang off.

Hopefully they'd get the hint and let him go.

Free Tibet.

Free Willy.

Free Nabby!

The league wouldn't work real well if players were allowed to play wherever they wanted for whomever they wanted for any amount of money they wanted. Try looking at the bigger picture.

Looking at even bigger picture try expanding this view on the economy as a whole. I guess it would not work if people were allowed to work "wherever they wanted for whomever they wanted for any amount of money they wanted".

Why would he need to trade anything for Nabokov next year? He'll be a free agent.

EDIT: ah, forgot about "tolling" his contract. I really don't know much about how that all works.

The Islanders aren't even guaranteed to get the contract tolled. They could just as easily lose his rights and get nothing out of the process (which they deserve considering they were able to pick him up for nothing).

Since Evgeni Nabokov declines to play for the Islanders and is suspended rightfully... could we trade Joey Macdonald for Nabokov?

With their goalie going down last night theyre desperate. I don't know how their farm system is currently but it seems like now they're going to be in a tight situation. Macdonald has showed up this season and has previous NHL experience. They know Nabokov wont play for them so is this feasible?

He has a NMC which means he has to play for NYI the rest of his career. He also must live in Long Island for 15 years (until he's 50 years old). These are the terms that he himself chose for his contract with Red Wings, but now he's an Islander. All this has already been covered in numerous articles about this Nabokov incident during the last week or so.
