Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

It's a rule intended to keep players from coming over to the NHL mid season. It's all about cap circumvention, to prevent teams from hiding players in Europe and then bringing them over late in the season.

Wrong.

If the player is in Europe on loan from an NHL team on an NHL contract, then that player does not have to pass through entry waivers as Nabokov did. He may, however, have to pass through re-entry waivers if he is not waiver exempt. Dick Axelsson is a good example. He has played in Europe the entire season, yet the Wings could call him up right now without having to worry about waivers.

Thank god it didn't happen Nabokov is a complete disaster for Russians at the iihf world championship.

Different situations, different coaches, and months later.

He was suspended by the Isles in January. He was not allowed to practice with the team. That's three months of nothing but personal workouts. What did you expect?

For a second, I thought this was bumped because someone was saying that if Detroit had Nabokov, they'd be up 2-0 on the Sharks or something of that matter.

We'd be up 2-0 in this series if Nabokov was playing.

He knows the SJ shooters like the back of his hand.
