We also lost nothing, in the event. It didn't make anyone else of significance any stronger.

Not really. You got your hopes up way too high most likely. A unique opportunity to get a world class goalie at dirt cheap.... Who cares if we didn't???

He is paid a ton to be the GM of the greatest hockey franchise in the world. We can scratch our heads all we want but we move on.

The Islanders don't need a goalie to solve their problems...it goes much deeper than that.


I concur, and didn't say that this move would. ...but they do need a goalie.

...and Garth Snow likes goalies. Last year it was Biron, Roloson, and DiPietro.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Well nothing to lose, so I :clap: Kenny for trying.

My question is why Islanders why? Wouldn't adding Nabokov win you a few games you should lose, hurting your draft pick?

Oh well, at least he isn't going to the West.

He is also to old to build around. Maybe they just want to give the kids some confidence with a few more wins, not sure.

That was my first reaction, but some Isles fans are making some sense. Roloson was a salary dump. Dipietro is made of glass, their one backup is apparenly barely minor-league caliber, and the kid they want to develop into a starter is just too green to throw into starting on this s***ty of a team right now.

At that price, Nabby makes sense. And honestly if it wasn't the Isles, it was going to be someone else.

As I said on hfboards, if you're pissed at the isles and you want to make yourself feel a little better, go look at their cap numbers, specifically under "buyout" and "dipietro." It's good for a chuckle.

So your sentence was suppose to say, "First and foremost, the contract type (1-way or 2-way) determines PAY if a player can be sent to the AHL." Yeah thats definitely a coherent sentence. LOL Just admit you got your facts wrong after you put down other posters that did the same thing.


Yes. Like Maltby's 2-way contract determined the amount of PAY if he could be sent down to Grand Rapids (he had to clear waivers first) and if he did clear waivers and was sent down, he would not have to be subjected to re-entry waivers if recalled.

so NYI trade Roloson and contract for cheaper cap hit, Nabokov and former 1st rounder Ty Wishart, both former Sharks. Good move for NYI.

According to recent reports Nabokov will not report to Islanders, going against what his agent stated earlier in week.

Pierre LeBrun is also reporting that Nabby won't report to the Islanders. Put him back on waivers so we can have him!!!
