Nabokov Claimed By The Islanders

Ken Holland inked a one year deal with goaltender Evgeni Nabokov to play for the Wings, but it was contingent upon him clearing waivers. The Islanders claimed him Saturday morning. The interesting thing here is that he is refusing to report to the Islanders which is his right. That means he could be going back up for waivers if the Islanders decide not to sit on him. His contract is very cheap for the rest of this season so it’s still not very likely the Wings will get him. I wouldn’t be too surprised if a Western Conference team claims him even if he won’t report just to keep the Wings from getting him. For now we’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
