Nabokov to Detroit (570K), Nabby on waivers, claimed by the Islanders
 
UPDATE:

Nabokov now on waivers as of 12 noon est. Bob McKenzie



It looks like @Gordie78 may be a prophet. He said 4 hours ago Nabokov to DET and negotiatons are on and may be done soon.

Red Wings in discussions with veteran goaltender, Evgeni Nabokov. Deal today? Will have to clear waivers if it gets done.

Makes sense. Osgood is out for a couple of months, Howard has a minor injury, and they don't feel comfortable with Joey McDonald backing him up. Howard remains the starter, Nabokov is there as a vet backup with playoff experience in case Howard falters.

Habs 1909 01-20-2011 11:14 AM

That was quick.

Big Poppa Puck 01-20-2011 11:14 AM

This would be huge. Takes some of the pressure off Howard, who is banged up and was struggling before that.

Doubt he clears though.

John-Eric Iannicello 01-20-2011 11:14 AM

I don't think he'll make it through waivers personally. I could see teams snagging him just to keep Detroit from being competitive. It's what I would do if I was a rival GM.

Ishad 01-20-2011 11:15 AM

I don't see how the wings sign him to an amount that will allow him to clear waivers.

It'll happen.

MetalMilitia 01-20-2011 11:16 AM

Holland putting pressure on Jimmy? I hope, if the Wings sign him, someone claims him. And yeah, that was very quick. Gotta love twitter.

gongshowmonkey 01-20-2011 11:17 AM

apparently some guy on twitter broke it before McKenzie or Dreger

@gordie78

I'm not sure. But a team looking to bolster their goal-tending depth for a cup run may seize the opportunity.

We'll have to see what the $ figure is.

IdealisticSniper 01-20-2011 11:19 AM

Would be funny if TB claimed him and then traded Ellis/Smith to Det ;)

Wings have next to no cap space. Odds are the contract would be for 2M or less. Many teams would be interested. Colorado immediately comes to mind as a team that would claim him.

Ellis or Smith to Detroit for a box of donuts?

thadd 01-20-2011 11:20 AM

Islanders or Oilers could claim him off of waivers and trade him before the deadline. Think they could get a 2nd rounder? :)

Vitto79 01-20-2011 11:20 AM

interesting but no way he passes through entry waivers anyway

I'm not sure what the cap space situation is in Detroit, but I can't see them giving Nabokov the kind of money that would scare other teams away.

One thing is for sure. Nabokov is on his way back to the NHL.

alpine4life 01-20-2011 11:21 AM

basically anyone can claim him, if signed by Detroit.

Osgood is on LTIR, so my guess is the deal is probably for exactly what Osgood makes(1.417m) +- a few thousand.

If it gets done and he clears MacDonald will be sent down.

Can't claim a guy and then trade him.

Phaneufed 01-20-2011 11:23 AM

Could see a team like the Flames claiming him, then trading him for a 2nd that we need. I don't think he'll even get that far though, i'm betting the Devils or Oil pick him up.

edit: NVM, read post above me. Could still see the Oilers picking him up.

that would be a classic move but I doubt Det would bother with any team that claimed Nabokov to spite the wings.

GentlemanOfLeisure 01-20-2011 11:24 AM

Since the Devils never think outside the box, The Islanders should claim Nabakov then send him to Detroit for a draft pick. Or anyone else who wants him.

It's like getting a free asset with little risk. If nobody wants Nabokov in a trade just waive him since he's a UFA at end of year or let him backup DP till he gets hurt again.

You can play him a game or two then deal him at the deadline.
