When Kipprusoff and Toskala were Sharks

Everyone knows they're close buds but I always thought they were bitter rivals in SJ as both were competing for the #1 spot? Also how long were they teammates for before Kipper got dealt?

They were competing for the No.2 spot

2000-01 in the AHL, then parts of 02-03 and 03-04

Except for the one post season that Toskala was the main guy, Nabokov was the #1 guy in SJ while the other two were in the organization.

Nabby was drafted in 1994 (ninth round!!). Played in the minors for three seasons (2+) before his first NHL games (99-00). He's in his ninth (full) NHL season with Sharks.

Toskala was drafted in 1995 (4/90). Two+ years in the minors (with one NHL game), starting 00-01. "Up" with SJ in 02-03 (handful of games) and then 03-04 through 06-07.

Kiprusoff was drafted in 1995 (5/116). Two-ish years in the minors, starting 99-00. Got the backup spot after Shield traded. Traded fall 2003.

So there was more interaction between the two in the AHL than the NHL.

Most know this already, but just to clarify: Nabby's first camp was in 1997, along with Marleau. He was still playing over in Russia or Kazakhstan or wherever between '94 and '97.

It's great to see this tandem together again. Tosk should re-sign as a back-up.

Good for Vesa, the guy needs to have a steady team in front of him again.

The only time Kipper was even asked to be the #1 was when Nabokov held out at the beginning of the infamous 02/03 season, and Kipper didn't exactly play up to what was needed.
