WHen do you think he will be available to pick up?
and what team do you think he'll land on.....
im circling my waiver wire waiting for him to show up......will use him as traade bait to improve my defense core
I've been stalking the free agent listings for 24 hours now like Hannibal Lecter pacing outside a Shriner's convention, but still no Nabokov. I'm thinking Yahoo won't be listing him until he's actually signed to someone's roster and that can't happen before he's waived through the league. Sometime Saturday afternoon we should see him on someone's roster and then we will see him on the Yahoo free agent list. For me that means several dozen refreshes tomorrow. It's situations like this that make me happy to be unmarried!!
how can this guy not already be on yahoo list's of players. What a joke this site is sometimes when it comes to hockey, if this were another sport he would have been in the players list from the beginning of the season!
Come on Yahoo, get it together....
I'd love to see him go to Detroit, but no way he clears waivers at 750,000. Who knows, Chicago could be interested, so could Pittsburgh just to spite other contenders.
reality is Nabby won't show on any leagues list UNTIL he has played a game...on whatever team he ends up on...then its up to each fantasy league how long he is on waivers/becomes a free agent!

According to the Wings....
Let's break some news. Nabokov signed to a one-year deal. Goes on waivers at noon tomorrow.

We might see him this afternoon on the waiver wire??
Here's what I got from Yahoo in December when I emailed them. Sounds like he might not be available until after he plays his first game. They update overnight, so don't expect him to randomly appear in 5 minutes. If anything, he has a better chance of being there tomorrow.
