Well let the Nabokov saga continue! After coming back from the KHL and appearing to sign with the Detroit Red Wings all was fine, until he went on re-entry waviers and was claimed by one of the NHL's worst teams the New York Islanders. In the eyes of the Islanders they thought they could finally put their goaltending troubles to rest and have a solid number one in Nabokov. This was not the case after Nabokov and his agent found out about the claiming he decided not to report to the team and sat at home. Nabokov's reasoning for this was because he wanted to contend for a cup and not rebuild. With this the Islanders had many options they could suspend Nabokov without pay which they did, they could've placed him back on waviers, trade him or eventually go to the board and get them to holdout his contract, which means Nabokov would not become a free agent and he would be with the team next season. Personally, I think this is a big joke and Nabokov should stop being childish play this season and become a free agent in the off-season. In my eyes you have not heard the last about this issue and it will continue till both parties are happy.
