“Goalie Phone” Rings Daily

from the Mercury News,
Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson calls his team's goalie situation ``a problem everyone would love to have.'' Both Evgeni Nabokov and Vesa Toskala have carried the team for extended stretches over the past two seasons. Both recently signed multi-year contract extensions. And, as trade talks are increasing in the days leading to the NHL's June 24 entry draft, both appear to be on other teams' shopping lists. ``We've got two guys who are No. 1s,'' Wilson said Thursday. ``It's a good problem and we'll deal with it. I get a lot of phone calls every day.'' The majority of those callers mention his goaltenders. How Wilson responds is the issue. Most speculation has focused on the Sharks trading Nabokov, who was supplanted as their top goalie during the final months of the season and throughout the playoffs. But Wilson left open other possibilities, saying he would do whatever improves his club the most.
