I just don't understand.

Ottawa is a better team than Detroit. If he was leaving for a Cup, I think I'd be more understanding, but what the ****.

He's said his entire career he never wants to leave Ottawa.

No done deal yet. Wait and see I guess.

Is there a live stream for TSN for this? I didn't see a link on TSN at all.

Don't know if you guys have mentioned this, but I saw yesterday that people were suggesting that Grabovski was going to fly away to the KHL:

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 1h
Mikhail Grabovski's agent says his client only wants to play in the NHL. Says the KHL not an option at the moment

There are rumblings Grabo won't even clear waivers. Don't know if he has yet already though.

On another note, did you guys see the Korpikoski deal? 4 years 10 million. I think he's a reasonable comparison for Backlund unfortunately. If anything Backlund is probably worth more.

Agreed, that negotiating window could make it a crazy fast day.

Not comparable. Korpikoski may not have a better ceiling, but right now he's a better player and has been pretty consistently for Phoenix the past two/three years.

That would be a very reasonable deal for Backlund, but I don't think Backlund will settle for that. His agent would probably point to his production in Europe during the lockout as proof of potential.

#Isles have re-signed G Evgeni Nabokov to a 1-year, $3.25 million deal.

Chris Johnston ‏@reporterchris 43s

Mikhail Grabovski cleared waivers and will become a free agent after compliance buyout by the #leafs.

Isles re-sign Nabokov. 3.25, 1 year. One less goalie on the market. Isles must think they have no chance with the other guys.

He had 6 goals and 5 assists in 36 games last year. He's good defensively like Backlund. If anything, I'd say Backlund is a slightly better player. He had 8 goals and 8 assists in fewer games to go along with the top advanced stats on the club other than arguably Stempniak.

Apparently there is a rumor that Ference is going to Edmonton. I don't like it.

Who else was there? The next best choice would be Emery. Thomas is a wildcard. Isles fans seem to have a hard on for Anton Khudobin though.

Me neither. He'd actually provide leadership and some defensive zone coverage. Ugh, I was hoping they go after Blum or something.
