Ideally, we would re-sign Nabokov or replace him with another vet and give one of Poulin/Nilsson 25-30 games as a backup next year. The problem, of course, is DP. You can't keep three goalies on the roster all year, and you can't rotate that many either.
I think that next year the team will have an open competition between DP, Poulin and Nilsson. The only way I see that changing is if either DP gets hurt again or the Isles make the playoffs this year in which case I think they re-sign Nabokov.
Its just another reason why buying him out just puts this team in a much better spot.
