If Nabby ends up here, Osgood will come back after the trade deadline. After the deadline, there are no restrictions on roster size.

Are you getting trade deadline and playoffs mixed up?

No. Teams have no roster limits after the trade deadline, so far as I know.

honestly any other team besides Chicago or San Jose would be fine by me. I wouldn't go back to San Jose as they blamed everything on him for the non playoff success and Chicago just sucks in general. that is all.

We all knew this could happen, but the Sharks or Chicago would sting a bit more. Send him to the east or to someone that won't make the playoffs.

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.

Fair enough. I know that once playoffs come around the cap hits are null and so is the roster size. i didn't know that the roster size was null after the trade deadline.

WeNo matter what, it was a long shot from the start. Hopefully for the folks that think this was to motivate Jimmy, hopefully he got the message and he gets better. Beware Mr. Howard we DO have the nuts to replace you.

I feel like Mr. Bettman and company have a war room and come up with stuff that hinders us. No one even thought of Nabby until we did and BAM! there is a rule to hinder our amazing GM and alert the s***ty ones.

If Nabokov clears Waivers, and ends up in Detroit...

AND if he's allowed to even compete for the Starting role, let alone win it from Howard....

That's proof positive that Babcock is a liar with his "Howie is our Starter. We're going to ride him." schtick, and that his bias against Osgood was personal.

Just as some here have opined.

I really think Ken Holland is a sly old dog. He's hedging his bets. This is insurance of a bargain basement form.

I am still wondering who Kenny was doing a favor for with this Nabokov deal, or what the reasoning was behind it, because it was obvious from the jump that he was not going to clear wavers.

I'm still hoping Kenny has something up his sleeve and this wasn't just a random shot in the dark...

so it would be ok to keep allowing 4+goals a game even in the playoffs ? I mean because we are not here to win right ? We are just a team with a name on it. <_<

No offense but Ozzie has been given an opportunity this year and played pretty decent and if he wasn't injured he'd probably still be playing. As far as Nabby bs Ozzie... Nabby has been the better goalie for most of the last 10 years accept one season,

I am not saying Osgood or Howard have been great as both have their own issues but good team defense would help out a lot in the goals against department.

Everyone here is over analyzing the situation. Nabokov will be a Red Wing or won't be in the NHL at all. Think about it...

Nabokov wants to play for the Wings; obviously. Unfortunately, he has the possibility of being snatched away on waivers. If Nabokov is claimed by another team then he can just say that he doesn't want to play for that team. He's not signing to play for any NHL team, he's signing to play with the RED WINGS. 250k is peanuts for a guy that just made 30 million over the last 5 years. For a guy making this much money, it wouldn't be worth moving across continents to play with a subpar team that has no chance of winning.

My gut says that Nabokov will be a RED WING. However, if he is claimed, I predict he rejects the offer and stays in Russia.

I totally agree the defense is partly to blame also, but after seeing Howard and the end of last year and beginning of this year (especially with the first game of the year shutout) I had some decent expectations for his play this year.
