I don't disagree. This is a professional league, and you do what you can (within the rules) to get ahead.

Ken Holland, of all people, understands this. So should everyone else around the NHL.

no he ****ing hasn't

people on this board made the prediction the moment that Roloson got traded the NYI would put a claim in if someone signed NAbby!!
As for the other stories--I busted him on four of his claims and he booted me from his twitter account--he is full of **** and he has broken nothing--he uses sources outside of the new york area--mostly Jim Matthieson of the Edmotnon Journal-waits a week and then tweets what Matthieson wrote on the previous sunday--he is ripping off stuff from other sources and saying it is his own

btw

Three sources had Langenbrunner being asked to waive his NTC at training camp and then again in December--this twitter idiot repeats stuff after other people have said it

Obviously, Wings had no chance of getting him. I'm sure Holland recognized that at the price. Is it possible, however, that Holland did this to build a relationship with Nabby for possible talks going into free agency?

Also, I hope Mrs. Nabokov likes New York.

This whole damn thread is ridiculous.

The same people complaining the Isles made this move were the same ones complaining that they're "tanking" when they traded Wiz & Roloson. They're the same ones who were wondering if John Tavares is going to stay after his ELC is up. The same ones who bash the NYI constantly for having an AHL caliber roster & how they "aren't even trying."

I guess the only time to "try" is during the offseason.

For a young team that has been a lottery club for the last 2 or 3 years, winning more games & having the ability to develop your good goalie prospect properly is FAR more important than picking #3 (which they still may do anyway) in a meh draft class.

If they didn't pick him up & they left Poulin in here to rot, then these same fans would be screaming at how the NYI don't know how to develop their players either.

Its really amazing how many people on these boards promote tanking. I know we've been ****ed since that 20 game losing streak but I refuse to root against my team for draft picks regardless of our current state.

RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: Sources tell TSN that Evgeni Nabokov has decided to NOT report to NYI after being claimed on waivers today.

It was a smart move by the Isles. Nabakov should report if he wants any good contract next summer. If he refuses then he lowers his value by a few million and might not even get offers. Now he has a chance to play a lot of games and showcase himself on a weak team. If he plays well his price tag climbs and he won't have much stress on him to get the Isles to the playoffs. I think he'll do good and get a nice contract out of it.

He signed intending to play for Detroit...you know...a team that isn't a complete embarrassment.

At least with Svatos and Wellwood, they went to competitive, respectable organizations.

This needs quoting. Derp. He's going to be in an Isles jersey.

He should play, teams need to know what he's capable of for next summer. 1 full year out is bad, could hurt his market value - especially with his numbers in the KHL. Poor decision.

He can be put back on waivers if the Islanders choose to.
