That's absurd. There are no Islander fans.



Not true. I know the guy.

According to Islander fans, Holland will trade a 1st round draft pick + Hudler for Nabokov next year...


Nabokov and Streit? Nabokov and Okposo? Nabokov and NYI 1st and 2nd?

Surely they don't mean JUST Nabokov.

I really hope Tavares can escape that s***hole at some point in his career. Bush league organization, even though we didnt get Nabby, it still makes me lol how bad Garth Snow looks in all this.

Anything more than a 3rd round pick would be absurd, unless part of a salary dump.
They could shop him to other teams though, which might bring up his value, but, I think the GM's have learned they will have to approve the move with Nabokov.
3rd or maybe two 4th rounders if there are other bidders. Anything more and we should just try to hire someone else to back up Howard.

Time to rescue Conklin?

I am so sick of those putrid Islanders. If cheapo Mr. Wang wants to play hardball perhaps Kenny upsets their applecart by dangling an offersheet to Tavares this summer... <_<

If I were Nabby I would report to the Islanders and take a nap in the crease during my first game. Not even attempt to make a save, let in 7 goals on his first 8 shots as an Islander. Just to piss Garth Snow and Charles Wang off.

Hopefully they'd get the hint and let him go.

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.

The league wouldn't work real well if players were allowed to play wherever they wanted for whomever they wanted for any amount of money they wanted. Try looking at the bigger picture.


Looking at even bigger picture try expanding this view on the economy as a whole. I guess it would not work if people were allowed to work "wherever they wanted for whomever they wanted for any amount of money they wanted".

Why would he need to trade anything for Nabokov next year? He'll be a free agent.

EDIT: ah, forgot about "tolling" his contract. I really don't know much about how that all works.

The Islanders aren't even guaranteed to get the contract tolled. They could just as easily lose his rights and get nothing out of the process (which they deserve considering they were able to pick him up for nothing).

Since Evgeni Nabokov declines to play for the Islanders and is suspended rightfully... could we trade Joey Macdonald for Nabokov?

With their goalie going down last night theyre desperate. I don't know how their farm system is currently but it seems like now they're going to be in a tight situation. Macdonald has showed up this season and has previous NHL experience. They know Nabokov wont play for them so is this feasible?

If they try and trade Nabokov, he goes on waivers, and the Isles get nothing. Then again, that's what they have now.

They still have the rights to his contract for next season I believe. I also believe his has a no-move clause which doesn't allow him to be traded.

I think that's right. If not, please let me know.

He has a NMC which means he has to play for NYI the rest of his career. He also must live in Long Island for 15 years (until he's 50 years old). These are the terms that he himself chose for his contract with Red Wings, but now he's an Islander. All this has already been covered in numerous articles about this Nabokov incident during the last week or so.

WTG Nabby!! Glad to see he didn't report, I hope he doesn't. Sorry for being a poor sport but just how I feel.
