The priority is the reverse order in the standings. Ottawa or Buffalo would most likely put in a claim.

Also, Nabby has a no-movement clause (unless he grants his permission).

Rather have him an isle then wearing the damn red and white though
Having lived in Northern California from 1999-2006, I got to see Nabakov mature from a young

Anyway, as someone who became an Islanders fan the last few years from afar (we do exist, haha -- and sorry DP bashers, mostly because of him!), who is also a Sharks fan, I think this is awesome! The vaunted Sharks defense was mostly young too.

Strang intimated that there would be a DiPietro story today after saying he and Rahkshani practiced.

I thought that was the rules after reading the rumors that the Devils were going to claim him, then wait a week and put him back on waivers for the Wings.

Sharks fan here, i come in peace.

Congrats on getting Nabber for, well, nothing. He's a top 10 NHL goalie when on his game, he's athletic and can make some amazing saves. He has at times, let in a soft one, say via 5 hole, that made us Sharks fans a little crazy at times. He reads plays well, and does cheat a bit which can be a problem. He likes the poke check on breakaways. He's kind of a hybrid butter fly stand up tender. Quick with good reflexes.

It will be very strange to see him in a Isles jersey as others have stated, best of luck with him!

As a sharks fan i'm just glad we won't have to plav against him, at least this season unless we both reach the finals.

This is so sweet....Nabby an Islander.....

I know it says we can not go out and trade him right out but can he be traded at the trade deadline?

Not sure...but Can Snow trade him to the Wings at the trade deadline? anyone know if we can?

But another thought is with the 2 up and coming young Russian players would it be wise to hold onto him?

You guys are sitting 28th in the league, and most likely would have been jumped by the Devils and Oilers, leading to a great chance @ the number 1 pick. Now what?

I think you're better off without Nabakov (yes, I've seen his playoff game and know Babcock would start him over Oz, even Howie).

You still owe us some more for Jim Devellano, though So you can start by eliminating Chicago and Analheim and hopefully the Canucks will be out by then. We'll do our best at yet another draft table.

lawson is hurt and now isles can send down poulin. why trade assets to tampa when you can pick up a goalie on waivers? and who is pissing off who? a player had to go on waivers, and whether it was the isles or not, someone would have picked up nabakov.

and dont mess with your lottery pick? effff that. this team has been winning games lately and i like that.

Wouldn't be surprised if Snow throws him back on waivers in a week for Detroit, and gets a pick out of it or something.
Why would he not report? Does he not want to play anymore at this stage?

Nabokov has more to gain in reporting than not doing it.

Nabakov

Immediately extend him for one year at $2,000,000 and trade him in the off-season when the movement restrictions come off. He should have some decent trade value by then.

I don't see why we'd be passed by the Devils and Oilers when we passed them by starting to win games. The #1 pick **** is nonsense - this is a weak draft class (no clear cut #1) and you never know what a player will turn into.

I love this move. I'm tired of seeing this team lose and I'd much rather the team barely misses the playoffs than another lottery pick (as ridiculous as that sounds to all the yoooouth people). If we manage to finish 10th in the East, it shows your young team is improving and getting more experience. If you finish 14th and not add solid veteran players when you can nab them for $250k, you're giving less and less reason for your players to want to stick around and give their best effort.

Lotta butt hurt Wings fans on the "Trade" page.


My reply from that page's Nabby thread:

Only in the world of HF is losing a bonfide way to win (with higher draft picks)


GOD FORBID Garth Snow does something to make his team better! I mean...COME ON! Its okay for other teams, but not the Isles. NO! Not the Isles.

Rick DP will always be a crapshoot. He'll always be on the verge of being hurt.
Lawson: A 27 year old AHL journeyman. Who got hurt last night.
Poulin: He needs to stay in the AHL. Long term thinking here.

So, with a goalie that could have a career ending injury any day, an AHL journeyman who is hurt, and a kid who needs to develop properly...Why wouldn't the Isles claim Nabby?

I know, I know...just like my avatar states, we're a farce. The laughing stock of the NHL.

I dont think he is a bitter Red Wings fan, he is right. Say goodbye to top 5 draft pick. As long as the Isles are going in the right direction and our core youth is playing well I am all for it. But to see the likes of Larsson or Landeskog go really hurts. I just want to watch good hockey, lets go Isles.

Look, if nothing else, maybe this helps to restore some credibility to this team around the league. It shows we will spend some money (maybe not a lot of it) to make the team closer to an NHL product.
No downside here as was said, Poulin can go back to developing his game at B'Port.

it'll be pretty embarrassing if he refuses to report. i wouldn't blame him though.

I kind of don't like this move actually. it just pisses off a potential future trade partner. I understand the need for another goalie, but there had to be someone else out there to get that wouldn't **** with another teams plans.

I get that the isles need to remain competitive, and I'm glad that they now have a good veteran goalie. But i'd be ticked off if I wwere the wings. It would be one thing if the Isles were making a playoff push, but they're not.

Love the claim. I think he'll report because he wants to audition for a contract next year, as he as previsously stated himself.

So I look foward to seeing him in an Isles uniform. Love the DP/Nabby combo!

If he earned $570K for what's left of the season maybe his next contract would be around $1.25M/year.
