"The Islanders are within their rights to suspend Nabokov. That means Nabokov doesn't get paid and has no other options in terms of playing elsewhere. He just sits. That scenario could simply carry on for the balance of the season. End of story.

Or maybe not. The Islanders could appeal to the NHL to 'toll' the contract, which essentially means push it to next year. In that case, Nabokov would then 'owe' the Islanders a year and Nabokov would not necessarily become a free agent on July 1."

-Bob Mackenzie via TSN

So in the span of a year, Nabokov would have gone from having the freedom to sign a $6-million per year contract in the KHL to being shackled to the Islanders for less than what P.A. Parenteau's(notes) making.

You think he reports to the Islanders now?

The Isles can't trade Nabakov without waiving him first, then SJ will get the claim on Nabakov.

The Isles want Nabakov to either report for the rest of this season or the Islanders will ask the league to push Nabakov's contract to next season, since he did not honor the contract for this season. Then the Islanders could probably trade him, although SJ might want to argue that doing this is the Isles trying to avoid placing Nabakov on waivers and therefore Nabakov needs to be offered to them first.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

this whole thing is hilarious. i bet nabby is miserable right now. detroit couldn't have possibly thought they were going to get him so easily though, could they? kudos to long island for making things interesting.

in all fairness, they could really use nabby. poor dipo can't sneeze without pulling a muscle or breaking a bone. (seriously, look at his friggen wrap sheet on tsn: http://tsn.ca/nhl/te...rs/bio/?id=2134 IT GOES ON FOREVER)

I really don't understand this...did someone forget to read the rulebook? Or did they just assume that no one would claim him out of "courtesy"? I mean, the Islanders lost Dubie to waivers, so clearly someone of a higher caliber was going to be picked, obviously. What a mess. I'm glad the Devils didn't get involved in this one.

I think they went in fully knowing the rules. I also think they felt that no team would have the balls to screw over the Red Wings (for whatever reason).

I understand him a bit, he'd love to play PO's, at the age of 35 you never know what is going to happen of if you can go on playing a little more to get one more cup or something like that. But his behaviour in that situation made it even worse.

Eh he had enough chances in the playoffs with the Sharks and never did diddly-squat so I don't really feel sorry for him in that sense. And I don't feel sorry for the Isles either, they traded Roloson two months before the deadline just to save a few more pennies. Like some I just find the whole thing hilarious :P

They really do need to change the waiver rule though.
