via Darren Dreger tweet,
Red Wings in discussions with veteran goaltender, Evgeni Nabokov. Deal today? Will have to clear waivers if it gets done.
added 1:08pm, via John Shannon tweet,
Nabokov’s people talking to DRW… Challenge is to construct a contract that will dissuade others from claiming the goaltender on waivers.
added 1:11pm, another tweet from Shannon,
Holland/Meehan are experts at creativity… One consideration is a “no move clause” that forces a claiming team to keep Nabokov long term.
added 1:43pm, via Ansar Khan of Mlive,
“We’ve had conversations,” Holland said. “It’s hard to know (if they’re close). We’ll see.”
Asked about what has prompted the Detroit’s interest in Nabokov, Holland said, “Those are more questions for if something does happen – can’t put the cart before the horse.”
The Red Wings apparently are looking for some insurance following Chris Osgood’s surgery on Jan. 11 to repair a sports hernia. Holland said Osgood is on schedule to return in early- to mid-March.
added 2:21pm, A guy named Malik takes over from here.
