I suspect Nabby is not going to sign if he's got to deal with another 3-goalie carousel or will have to sit the bench for stretches to cater to Rick's re-re-re-re-redevelopment. I suspect Nabby would want some assurance that he'll be the bonafide starter. That can't happen if Rick is still around thinking next season is the season in which he pulls it all together and plays like a #1 NHL starter. Snow could tell Nabby that, the worst (or best) case scenario is that he could split time with Rick. But I still don't think that gets Nabby signed, even if the Isles show him the money.

I dunno...it's a tough call.
I think if Nabokov comes back he is without a doubt the starter. Rick becomes the backup until his injury.
