Khabibulin to Detroit? I can't see TB letting this happen. First they get screwed out of defending their Stanley Cup title the year after they win, and now they're going to lose their starting goaltender? I hope Tampa retains him. Like someone said before, Detroit should first try to find a way to score goals in the playoffs.

I'd keep Bert. Bert brings more to the table. And he can score, and play make just as well as Nazzy. He had an off year.

Tampa will probably re-sign him... he's a key part of their team, and they could afford to pay him the max there.

But Khabibulin is the type of player this off-season that should get the max contract on the market. There is a big drop off in goal after Khabibulin in FA, and there are a few teams out there that have goaltending concerns that could create a bidding war for Khabby.

In the end he'll be in Tampa IMO, but I wouldn't be all that suprised to see a few teams give him the max contract offer, after buying out or restructuring other areas of their team.

Besides Detroit and Vancouver, the Rangers, Senators, and possibly the Coyotes (depending on his relationship with the front office there), could all be interested in him.

I'm actually more interested about Hasek. He said he'd play again, if the CBA was reached before January 2006, so unless he pulls a 180, he's back with the Senators.

But regardless of whether or not the Canucks sign Khabibulin, this will probably be the first time in a LONG time that the Canucks will sign an impact free agent. So excited.

Only if he takes a big pay cut
you buyout, shanahan, whitney, hatcher, legace i hear might be bought out if we make a big pitch for a goaltender, and then we got a ton of money to sign a ufa or 2, an resign our youngsters.. it woldnt be too hard for the wings, tho itll be challanging, were just gonna have to buy some older UFA defensemen and forwards that are willing to take less and play for a contender.

Just curious, why is there so much speculation that the nucks are only able to retain one of them? Is it because they wont be able to afford them both?

Nik Khabibulan is one of the next in line after to Marty St. Louis to get resigned. He will be playing in Tampa in the upcoming season.

The fact that Healy was spouting this garbage just makes me feel all the more confident that he will re-sign.

no it was first all the "Bert wants to be traded" talk...

and now this statement by Naslund's agent suggesting he's going to look at all options.

and people take that and figure we'll end up losing one or the other.

The canucks payroll situation is fine.... they have room to sign Naslund - even at the contract max, and retain their team... they even have enough to add a $2mill or so FA with all that... and there are enough contract options with buyouts, and no qualifying certain players, that the team can create more room if needed.

Also, Vancouver finally got one decent season out of Cloutier... I think they'll be willing to see if lightning can strike twice.
But Cloutier got injured in the playoffs, and hasn't shaken the tag of a being a playoff choker. I'm sure we all remember Lidstrom's shot from center in 2002, or the 15 goals allowed on the last 60 shots in the Minnesota series. No matter how good he is in the regular season, until he has a year where he plays a full series and gets at least a 0.900 save percentage he won't be regarded as a top goalie.

Doesn't mean jack. He played there before and probably established family roots in AZ. Mike Peca still lives in the Buffalo area, and I doubt that he'd ever play for the Sabres again.

No, he bought a new house there. He's kept a house there since he left.

Yeah, JR still has a house in AZ. I don't see any rumours of him going to Pheonix...only a few of him being bought out and then going to Boston.

Why? Cujo has been great for the team in the playoffs. The numbers dont lie, it's not really his fault the other guys couldn't score goals.

You were on the team?

I don't know Nonis' style, but if he is anything like Brian Burke, CuJo will not become a Canuck.

No so fast.

It was also suggested in yesterday's Detroit news.

Mike Illitch will spend anything and buyout anyone if it means improving this team. Don't be surprised if the Bulin wall is in Detroit.

Still doesn't mean it's anything more than idle speculation with nothing behind it.

If they do ditch the 04-05 contracts, there will be a LOT of teams interested in Khabi, the first of which will be the last team he played for.

I'd like to see if VAN decides NOT to qualify/resign Cloutier in favor of bringing in another goaltender.

Then, if the AlMighty Burke of Anaheim signs his playoff go-to goaltender of years past...

I think Tampa's GM is smart enough to know that a good golatender, above all else, wins championships. IMO Khabby will be the priority signing whenever his contract expires.

Nah from what I've read into Naslund really didn't like playing in sweden as much as he thought he did. Same deal with Forsberg. I guess they realized that NHL hockey is the best

I think Naslund will resign with the Canucks...he's got a lot imbedded in the team and the city Especially if Bert stays.

Why would the Ducks want Cloutier when Giguere is better and Bryzgalov as a backup?

I don't see Khabibulin going anywhere. Like panasonic youth said, with everyone else restrictec, Khabibulin should be the first priority.

how about believing it when its done, TB would be crazy to give Khabibulin up he is the the best goalie in NHL behind Brodeur, if not as good the Dves do play a trapping systm which im sure helps Brodeur.
