Ideally Id liked a good defenseman but I think there is one small thing being left out of the equation here: Anyone who wants a 36 year old goaltender is likely looking for a deep playoff run
. Thats where it gets tricky for some teams. What contending team or wanna be contender is going to give up an important piece for another player who, its no secret, wants out and has wanted out from the day he got here. Leverage is not to our advantage here. Ideally, yeah, Id like to trade Nabokov for a solid first pairing or at the very least top 4 defenseman but find me a contending team with a surplus of good defensemen willing to deal one.
Any suggestions? The only contender I really see with a surplus of good dmen is Philly and after the investment they made in Bryzgalov are they really looking for a goalie?. You could probably lump Vancouver and Boston in there too but neither really needs a goalie.
So the other question I must pose is where's the market for goalies and of those teams who has a defenseman for us?
