Can you imagine how good Nabakov could be with a team in front of him that doesn't choke in the playoffs?
EDIT: I know he'd be coming in to replace Osgood as the backup, but part of me seriously believes he'll end up stealing the Number 1 spot from Howard unless Howard really picks up his play. Either way, a great 1-2 punch.
Not knocking Howard by any means, but he wasn't himself last spring either, and from what I gather it'll be questionable as to Osgood's health/fitness once the playoffs begin.
I'd welcome Nabakov with open arms; he still has a few years left in him at the NHL level, and has gotta be hungry to put his days in the Bay behind him, and prove his critics wrong that he's a top tier netminder.
