All we know about his wife is that she is from Kentucky and hates Russia.

7 hours and 36 minutes until It is revealed what team stole Nabokov

I hope St. Louis is somehow the highest priority to claim him and then he does that waiver rejection thing though

that would just be so insanely funny

He took one child with him and his wife and one child stayed back. She wasn't happy. Nabby is back

All indications are that the Islanders will put in a claim. There was a full newsday article today about it, and our beat writer NEVER writes about things like this unless she has it in pretty high regard it has a good chance of happening.

Personally, I don't really understand it. For a team that likes to build through the draft, with DP/Lawson or DP/Poulin, they have their 1 way ticket right into a top 3 overall. Maybe first overall.

So you sign Nabokov? That's just unfair to the player. I know life is unfair, but it's not necessary.

The main reason the Isles will do it is because they'd like Poulin to develop in the AHL. And who knows, this could be one of DP's last in the NHL,so maybe they figure if we claim him now, he likes the teammates, he resigns in the offseason to help us make the playoffs next year.

Otherwise, IDK. It is one of those "WTF" moves, but it looks like it will happen. Sorry to Detroit.

Would you like a package deal including Datsyuk and Lidstrom, while you are it?

I predict Nabokov to the Sharks then SJ deals Niemi to the Isles for a pic

Don't think the Isles will put a claim on Nabby just because they are noy a contender but they really need a G

I could see the Isles getting Smith from TB as well.

Doesnt make sense money wise for isles to pass on nabby for 570K and trade a pick for niemi who costs more.

That's a pretty dumb prediction. Only because Niemi has totally not worked out for SJ, right? Lol

I mean, SJ would totally claim him and trade their no.1 for the dude who didn't fold like a cheap chair during the playoffs while he was with them, right? Lol

words from his agent:

"Meehan said Nabokov will play regardless of where he ends up, nixing speculation that he would sit out the season if he were claimed by a club for whom he did not want to play.

“He wants to get visibility for next year,” Meehan said."

today at noon we'll find out.

In case this hasnt been mentioned (and it may have), the wigns sent joey macdonald back down to GR and brought up Pearce to make room for nabokov possibly being put on the roster

Mac would have to clear waivers if he were sent down later, whereas pearce is exempt from waivers.

so kenny must be pretty positive that the wings will get him :\

Oh do pray tell how you came to the conclusion that Niemi would be the first to go and not Nitty who has the longer contract.

This rule is a little stupid I think. If some other team wanted the guy, they should have tried and signed him themselves. Now, a player wants to sign one place, and then gets moved to a team he doesn't want to play for.

Yeah tell that to St. Louis Blues fans. It is a stupid rule but kind of makes sense. This prevents teams from "cheating". I.E. you negotiate with a player in Europe that he plays half the year over there and you bring him over for a less cap hit and in time to help your team for the playoffs.
