This thread and the previous one might be the biggest overreaction to a situation I've seen on here.

If Nabokov is a claimed by a team but decides it is not a team for which he would like to play, he has the right not to report and not play in the NHL for the balance of the season.
That should be it. Unless someone has proof of anything else... He can resign as a UFA in the summer.

Granted, that the team would give him a chance to be a #1 (which is what he would get with the Islanders anyway).

IMO, bad move by Nabokov. If he wants to piss a chance away to showcase himself for next season, so be it.

You are absolutely right. It does look bipolar. Couldnt agree more. Having said that, in this situation they were in they thought this was the right move. Even if they didnt put in a claim, other teams before Detroit would have gotten him. I hated the Roloson move, btw.

In UFA period, you then try to swoon this goaltender for sticking around since you have given him a chance in a starting role and maybe give him more money than other teams etc.

So, yes, Garth Snow looks foolish for doing something that I'm sure at least 10 other teams have done.

that's a long time not to be playing hockey if he doesn't report.

They gained an asset for a player they were going to lose, and then another player, who could replace the player they moved for said asset, fell into their laps for free. Why wouldn't they take him?

I imagine he's going to report once the dust blows over. I understand this situation is far from ideal, but you guys do understand one thing:

He is now going to be suspended. He is not allowed to sign a new contract until he reports to the Islanders and they no longer have him suspended. Those of you posting "THIS SEASON" have no idea what you are saying(How ironic)

Notice how Radulov still has to report to Nashville when he comes back to the NHL, if ever, because he's not only suspended, but property of Nashville.

Dur Dur Durrrrrr. Nabby is only screwing himself. I don't blame him for not reporting, but he's the one that left the NHL. So deal with it.

Roloson was owed over a million dollars and was traded.

Nabokov wasn't clearing waivers.

Isn't this similar to the Radulov situation where by not fulfilling his current NHL contract terms he can't return to the NHL and sign a new contract until he completes his old one.

I'm pretty sure there's a conspiracy theory around this whole thing.

Anyone wanna take a stab at it?

I'm not a Snow fan, but the premise behind the move is how a GM is supposed to run their team. To get better.

You cannot blame Snow for everything when your owner runs the ship and tells you what you can and cannot do.

But, pretend like you know about the organization more.

Read that more carefully. It does NOT say that Nabokov is a free agent this summer.

Lawson was injured late last night. For all we know the Islanders put in a claim for Nabokov before he was injured.

Everyone keeps bringing up the trading of Roloson and why they did that only to claim Nabby.

I think (and I may be totally off base) that trading Roloson was a favor to Dwayne, he was a class act on the Isles both on and off the ice. He wanted to play for a contender and a chance at a strong playoff run, so the Isles gave him that.

If the Islanders put him back on waivers, do the Wings have the #1 priority because of their initial contract?

if thats the case than it should be perfectly fine.. snow did what he should've done to make his team better.. nabby is doing what he has the right to do which is not play for a team that clearly has no chance to compete for the cup..

If he or his agent would have said "If I am claimed by a team who I feel does not give me a chance at winning a Cup or increasing my value for next year, I will not report." I don't think many people would have a problem.

From what was reported, all the memo said was that he hopes and/or expects to compete as a #1. It didn't say a #1 for a contender, or if he's claimed to be a back up he won't show up.

Even if it did, Snow would still have a right to claim him to block him from helping another team.
