Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
The problem of course is that if he signs with anyone, Nabokov will also need to go on waivers - and in all probability, would be claimed in the same way Svatos was. It’s a dilemma because as the season approaches the halfway mark and the salary-cap dollars click off, Nabokov could be an interesting wild card going forward, for any team needing to shore up its netminding for a second-half push. But as the Svatos manoeuvres prove, often it is the team that steps up and signs a free agent out of Europe in mid-season that has the least likely chance of seeing them end up on their roster.
