I've said it before, if you guys acquire Nabakov and with a healthy Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne, it will be a cakewalk back to the SCF. With Nabakov, the Flyers are probably the most well-balanced team in the league, in my humble opinion.

Well, if we sign Nabokov, it'll end the Thomas to Philly, Price to Philly etc for the next few years which is good. Is his rep as a playoff choker justified?

You're assuming we sign Nabby. No need to get ahead of ourselves.

They are two COMPLETELY different type caliber goalies.
He will get Biron'd if he asks for too much. Nabokov probably won't end up as a backup, but he'll definitely end up having to sign for a lot less then he expects if he asks for too much and waits too long to realize that he's not gonna get what he wants. The goalie market is very similar to how it was last year.

If he's asking for 5 mil, like some people are expecting him to, then I doubt many (if any) teams are going to be willing to take him on when there's so few teams and so many other goatlending options out there.

If we sign him, we'll find out next year.

I still think he is one of the best goalie options out there. I would love to see him in net.

The whole team is viewed as chokers, you can't say its one guy's fault.

edit: San Jose will soon find out how good Nabokov really is.

i do not want to sound like a conservative republican, but how do you pay for this?the reason the flyers lost the last 2 years in the playoffs was that they had no cap room to make the moves necessary to improve the team.?

i am not an expert on the bargaining agreement but will this be a 35 yr old contract will no cap relief? will we be another boston with a goal tender's contract killing our cap?

do we want to lose players like giroux because we are tied up with a contract that puts us in cap hell.?

remember, in the 2008/09 season, we were fighting with pittsburg for home ice in the playoffs and we did not have enough cap space for a full team so we had to play defensemen on amateur contracts , we had to send giroux to the phantoms for a lack of cap room anf finally we had to dump upshall and pay phoenix a second round pick as a premium for cap space. i have not seen this happening to any other team

holmgren nets to get this cap right !!!!!. this is not the old days when the flyers spared no cost to win. this is the new nhl and a gm need to control his cap if he is to be sucessful

Ughh, I didn't want this to happen.

Okay, I accept him as our goalie. I used to love him. I just really hope he doesn't choke for us.

Get him for a cap hit under 5 mil and less than 5 years and I'll be content.

I think everybody knows by now that Nabby is not my guy. We could do worse though, this much is certain.

Philly.com:


Quote:
According to a source, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was given permission to negotiate a deal with San Jose's soon-to-be free agent goaltender Evgeni Nabokov.

Holmgren had an initial discussion with Nabokov's agent, Don Meehan, of Newport Sports Group, on Friday evening during the first round of the draft.

San Jose general manager Doug Wilson told the Daily News on Friday that the Sharks already informed Nabokov, who posted 40 wins in each of the last four seasons, that they would be heading in a different direction come July 1.

When contacted late Saturday, Wilson would not confirm or deny any such deal was in place.

"My policy has always been consistent in that any conversation I have with another GM is kept in confidence," Wilson told the Daily News.

Nabokov earned $6 million last season but turns 35 next month and is eligible for a 35-and-over incentive-laden contract that could have a low cap number. Meehan and Holmgren negotiated a similar deal for Chris Pronger last summer, which will take effect for this upcoming season.

If the Flyers and Nabokov do reach a deal before July 1, when he would be free game for all 28 other teams, the Flyers would be required to send a compensatory draft pick to the Sharks in exchange.

If the Flyers and Nabokov do not strike a deal, no pick or money would exchange hands. The Flyers essentially have a little risk, high reward early crack at a goaltender who would demand a lot of attention come July 1.

Nabby is 35, so I'm hoping a 3 year deal worth $12 mill. Front load it as well.

5,4,3

Please get this done!

Pretty much my sentiments exactly.

If we can sign him at a reasonable price and term, then I'm OK with it, as he's one hell of an upgrade on Leighton.

That said, I'm not really confident in Homer's ability to get a reasonable price and term locked in. We shall see.

I'd really like to see Homer get him locked in under $5M. I would be perfectly happy with that, but somehow I don't think its gonna happen.
