Can't believe a thread about Nabokov gets 30 pages.

I think this is a poor move from Nabokov, the islanders have a plethora of young talent, and it's a matter of time before those players start to learn, get better, and emerge as better players

Give the islanders a few years, and they will be playoff contenders

Snow should waive to show respect/.
Isles should respect and shouldn't screw with Tavares, Okposo, Streit, MacDonald, Moulson, De Haan, and the rest of their young players. Damn the Isles for trying to ice a decent line up! Don't they know they should just roll over and die!?!?

No, his agent sent out a message that said he to wanted to compete for a starting role. He didn't say he wouldn't report if he wasn't going to.

As I said before, if he couldn't outplay DiPietro, then he has no business playing for a contender and any other teams who put in claim should breath a sigh of relief.

uhhhh.... DiPietro can't stay healthy. Pretty sure that is common knowledge. I am pretty sure Nabokov has a better shot at getting games in as an Islander(injury-prone DiPietro + AHL level goalie) than as a Red Wing(Legit starter in Howard)

1. I don't believe Isles had the first priority, so they didn't know for sure if they'd get him.

You're grasping at straws.
How about a real source (twitter is often not a real one)?

I really don't know why people are now playing him I perfectly know I still might not end up as a DRW but both are playing within the rules simple as that.

Question is, do the red wings get first dibs on waivers if he gets put back on?

Because if he is this sounds like some sort of conspiracy .

But really, Islanders pick him up and Nabby says he wont report, then the islanders feel shocked or whatever, then put him back on waivers for the wings to pick him up. It is a way to try to get past the NHL with any pre organized deal as it doesn't look like the NHL could prove that they pre organized it.

Just a thought..

Neither will the former. He's just having to decide between the best of two bad options. You could put anybody between the pipes for the Islanders this year and the result probably wouldn't be much different. At least by leaving a bit of mystery regarding how well he can still play, he's a worthwhile gamble. If he went to the Islanders and sucked, he loses that value.

Possible that they are just trying to strong arm Snow hoping he says **** it and puts him back on waivers to land at a more desirable local. When Snow says your not reporting your not playing anywhere maybe he shows up to play.

Wouldn't put it past the typical ***** agent

Jim: Yeah?

Jim: Er what?

Bob: Yeah, they didn't just put me back on waivers so I could go to the Blues. What a bunch of jerks.

Jim: So I shouldn't sign them because they followed the waiver process and didn't bend when you demanded they let you go for no reason?

Bob: Yeah. Totally. Jerks. They also wouldn't give me a DeLorean time machine. I hate the Flames.


Why would a player be angry about a team following a league rule?

Again, the far more likely scenario is Bob will tell Jim to not sign with the Islanders because IT'S THE ISLANDERS, land of crazy Wang and Snow. This waiver wire pickup, I fail to see why it would piss off future UFA's.
Slight change needed.

""I haven't talked to the player yet. I've left messages," Snow told TSN. "We've booked him a flight out of Oakland we look forward to having him be a part of our organization.""

So Snow claimed a player without talking to him first?
sounds like a red wings fan is angry...

who cares? Nabby deserved this for his attitude. Let him sit out the year with no pay.

Gj NYI.

Doing what to him? They need a goalie. A competent goalie entered the market on waivers. They claim him. Pretty cut and dry standard NHL stuff.

Well I just woke up, so excuse me if this has been asked already.

So will the Islanders just suspend him if he doesn't report so that nobody can have him?

I'm interested to see what happens.


Is Snow the type of GM who will say "nuts to you, I'm not waiving you, so you can sit at home"?

Also, if he does get waived(waives his NMC) to go to Detroit-does this set a future precedent for future players who will insist on an NMC as well, then basically "I won't report" until they get to the team they signed with?

Its a small sample size, but he doesn't have the greatest stats coming back from the K-so why does Detroit want him?

As for the Isles, they've done nothing wrong IMO. See, if Nab doesn't get claimed by NYI, at such a low salary, and he goes to Detroit, who are pretty high up in the standings, then charges of "Collusion" would fly all over the place-the idea "no one claim Nabakov because we signed him".

Predictable move by Nabokov. I just hope that Islanders will go ahead with this and suspend his stupid ass.

How is twitter not a real source? I don't get people that still say that. Guys that work for TSN, CBC, The Sporting News and other news outlets are real sources.

What's really funny about the claim that the Isles are screwing their reputation with free agents and their agents is.... their reputation is already screwed with free agents. It's an organization with a bad present, an uncertain future, and questionable (to say the least) leadership.

Pretty silly, no?

Cheers,

Naby comes back to play on a good team then gets swiped by a ****** team. I understand why they did it I would prob do the same but either way its a dick move. Put urself in his shoes rather than looking from the management standpoint..
