And with the NMC, NJ or any team cannot put him on waivers without his permission.

There's been speculation that Nabokov may walk from deal if claimed by team he has no interest in playing for.

(His agent also sent out a message to all the league stating that Nabokov wanted a chance to compete for starting goal tender. So if you're looking for a backup, he's not your guy.)

FTR, both Osgood and Howard, in Detroit, will be UFAs this summer, so if he is unclaimed (or ends up with Detroit), this could be a tryout for another deal as the main guy.
