Nabokov Pledge Drive

Anyone out there convinced that Evgeni Nabokov will get plucked off of waivers, once the signing is official? Confident that he’ll be a Red Wing by the weekend?

Put your money where your mouth is.

From now until the waiver period ends, we’re taking pledges. In fact, I’ve gotten us started. I’m pretty sure he’ll clear waivers and make his way onto the Detroit roster, and I’ve got $2 on it. If he’s claimed, I’ll add two bucks to the till.

Who’s next?

    1. I don’t think there’s any way in hell he gets picked up. Putting my $2 down that someone else grabs him. Chances we see him in a Wings uniform = ZERO.

  1. I probably should’ve specified: $2 for every goal he lets up as a Red Wing during the 12-game plege drive to H2H2.

  2. $2 for the urchins says he’s getting claimed.

    Regardless of whether he’s claimed or not, I hereby pledge $2 for each game KH played for Detroit ($6 total), because he sure knows how to spice up the pre-ASG doldrums.

  3. If he gets picked do we get a Draft Pick? I never quiet understood what the whole future considerations thing was. Maybe Holland is doing it so we have a few extra picks this year(Leino trade gave us +1)?

    1. Ah, you beat me to it! Especially with Nitty on IR now. Throw in a $10.00 pledge for Nabby to the Sharks for me too.
