If this was discussed in the first thread I apologize.
Or is this the arrangement that people thought the Devils might make with the Wings?

At 570 did you really expect him not to be claimed? Especially at half a seasons salary? You should've known this would happen!
Nabokov should've been signed for 2 years or 3 million 1 year
both case with NMC

Lawson Back to Bridgeport, I think they should try to get rid of DiPietro, wiavers, buyout iunno, Poulin seems to be playing well

I don't get why so many are upset. Even if the Islanders didn't claim him there was NO WAY he was making it to Detroit. Nabokov put himself in this position - having to go through waivers - so I don't really feel sorry for him.

Maybe the GM from a team like Chicago of San Jose asked the Islanders to claim Nabokov and keep him out of the Western Conference and offered in return a sweeter deal for someone else in the future...Just a possibility

It stupid, because Nabokov gives them a chance to win a few games, and hurt their chances a better draft picks which we know they are banking on.

So essentially this was a stupid, stupid move.
You know they have to sell John Tavares right? He wants the team to improve and the only way they can do that is if their young guns get a chance to actually win games. Draft picks are nice and all, but it's not like he's passing up a Crosby, or Ovechkin here. He can get some wins out of this, improve his team and still get a good player in the top 5. So it's not number one and they don't draft Larsson, but they get a winner like Landeskog, or take Murphy who is pretty much like Streit, but cheaper.

They also need a new arena and the only way they get that is if they have wins, not shiny draft picks.

These guys are competitive and they want to win, so they will do anything for that. Good on Snow and the Isles.

Unless they plan on trading their 1st for already proven talent and don't want it to be a top 3 pick, then why ?

More important to this team than picking 3 instead of 5 is developing a winning culture and developing your players.

I think they moved Roloson hoping Lawson could get the job done and Poulin could develop in Bridgeport. With Lawson getting hurt last night, and Nabokov becoming available it made sense.

The Isles can go out and play every night. That will help Tavares, Okposo etc. to develop.


Also, it isn't like this is going to take them out of the lottery completely. They may pass Ottawa, and possibly Toronto (who is playing well), but they are 10 points behind the #6 pick.

And you're wrong about something...The Islanders are easily the worst managed franchise currently in the WORLD.
Can't say I disagree with you at all. But the Pittsburgh Pirates are pretty bad too.

From my perspective and as a Red Wings fan, at least be went to an Eastern Conference team that we don't have to compete with. If he went to the Blackhawks it could have really sucked.

That's a bingo. Finally a smart and educated post. Nothing else need be said.

Can we end the thread now?

Well too bad for the Wings and Nabokov. Though I'm sure the Howard fantasy owners are relieved . Still an ugly move by the Islanders and doubt he'll report. Oh well the season is over half way over so he'll just have to wait until the offseason.

Anyways, I think they'd like to go back to draft weekend and have that one back. Maybe he'd take the offer. Just proves anyone can be an agent.



And maybe he should have taken the offer from the NHL teams back in June and July before skipping off.


If so, maybe his agent will give him some better advice and say "hey, this is guaranteed from an NHL team, and they're not going to be bad."


And Nabokov will say "hey, maybe I should think about it, just in case I end up on waivers and go to the Islanders."


Just in case he left the NHL and wants to come back without clearing waivers.

And possibly not having your choice of teams.


In case your contract is bought out and you want to come back and actually play for a good team.


Man, I bet he wishes he had that one back.

Thank goodness it's not Lou's style or Bettman may have taken another Devils first.

Well this is a first...everyone's usually all high-and-mighty when it comes to "tanking" or whatever stupid thing you call it. Now some seem to complain that the Islanders were stupid to do this because they might place a little higher than their position now, which condones tanking, right?
