Fistly, before anyone jumps on, I know how waivers work. Right, got that out of the way.
Having a gander over on HF Forums I'm just amazed at the comments being made defending Snow for attempting to grab Nabokov. "How was he (Snow) supposed to know Nabokov didn't want to play for the Isles" seems quite a popular one. Hint, he signed for the Red Wings.
Yes, as I said, I know how waivers work but the head scratching and "whodathunkit?" type comments over Nabby not wanting to play for the league's comedy element, backed up by similar comments from Wang and Snow are just gobsmacking. Are the Isles really trying to play the "we're a great organisation, why would anyone want to turn us down" card against all the evidence that counters such claims?
Its a funny old world.
