Nabbys 1-0 OT shutout vs flyers this year was vintage Nabby!
Honestly I would package Nemo with boyle/murray and get more offense, and give Greiss the job if Nabby was not coming back ...he has earned it..Shark PP and PK sucked, especially in playoffs, Havlet came in late but played well, Burns I like but he needs to step up. and we need more of the Nasty....
Well, next time you see him, drop a hint, like..."hey nabby, the fans still miss you..." or "everytime Niemi gives up a rebound, a Shark fan goes into cardiac arrest..."
You know, just something that will make him feel good.
