a. Legitimately need a goalie to make a post-season/Cup run - The Isles are not.

b. Really want to screw over the Wings since they may face them in the post-season - Again, the Isles are not one of those teams.

So why pick him up? To finish 22nd in the league instead of 28th? It's too late to even make a playoff push - if this happened in November or *maybe* early December - I could see why they give Nabokov a shot, but not now.
Again Nabokov's agent said Nabokov is willing to play for ANY team that gives him a shot at being #1 goalie.
