This thread is about Nabokov - please keep it to that particular subject. No beers, no goalie wars, and if you "report" someone has made a claim, please cite a source.
I'd hate to have to pull this thread, but I will if I have to delete another 3 pages of irrelevant posts.

:scared:

I have figured it out, Kenny has thought of every angle and has let out little trendils of rumors to the teams that may want to claim him. IE; fact blackhawk insider calls real shark insider and says hey we made a claim. Shark insider tells the brass not to make a claim cuz it is a waste of time. Kenny has had this done for everyone and shows us once again why he is a super genius. :cool:

It would be weird to see him wearing a number that isn't 20.

A Florida fan on another board mentioned Florida might want in. Unsubstantiated rumor but it got me thinking: What if Florida grabbed Nabby, and then offered up Vokoun in a trade to the Wings? Circumvents the CBA and still gets the Wings a reliable veteran goalie. But I think he makes too much cap-wise.

At any rate, something similar to this might be what Holland has up his sleeve.

But then again...he could've just traded for Vokoun/Veteran Goalie without all the drama...


Man, this really is mind-boggling. I'll be at work when the drama comes to a conclusion tomorrow, hope to get good news.

Vokoun is way to expensive for this team. We would have to give up our depth in order to acquire him.

He also has a NMC.

I think Kenny is just trying to get a back up goalie without giving having to trade away anything.


perhaps the most eloquent response from the past two days :thumbup:

Doesn't matter, there will probably be a few teams lower on the standings that will get first dibs ... like Islanders, Ottawa, Florida, Edmonton that might want him first.

As I type this it's 1AM. I think we're safe for tonight. Let's see what happens in the morning. I still think it's cheap insurance, and nothing more. If he pulls this off, I'd say he's a sly dog who hedges his bets. We shall see.

No way he clears. Timing of this signing actually sucks because within the last 12 hours, a couple of teams' goalies have been injured. This story has gained a lot of drama around the league, but a star goalie worth $3+ million signing for league minimum (with a cap hit of only $250k) is a gift for some other team. Not Detroit, unfortunately.

I wonder what plan 'B' is? Dan Cloutier?

Hasek ... he doesn't have to clear any waivers :lol:.
Ray Emery's name has been thrown around although I'm not sure if I would want him.

so close
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...
