With all due respect, I'm not really seeing why $5 million would have been too much to pay him. Up to the end of his tenure with the Sharks he was one of the few true workhorses in the league, capable of 70+ games, and aside from his horrid 2005/2006 season never had a GAA above 2.44 since the lockout. That's elite, IMO, and worth $5 million.
Anyway, not trying to cause an argument. I'm just scratching my head wondering how the Sharks felt he wasn't good enough. He might have let in some bad goals in the playoffs but with a career 2.29 GAA in the playoffs, those bad goals
have been few and far between. However, if it was truly between Nabokov and Marleau then I can definitely see why Marleau was the priority. Talk about another very underrated and oft-criticized Shark.
