Well, the long international nightmare is over. The noon deadline has just passed and goaltender Evgeni Nabokov has a new home. After being signed to a one-year, $570,000 pro-rated contract by the Red Wings, he was subjected to the 24-hour waiver wire.

The third team on that list, the New York Islanders, have claimed him — taking on the contract that the Red Wings signed him to.

As a result, it’s time for the kids to cash in! Listed below are the pledges that will be added to your total. Just like last year, I’ll be totaling dollars and cents and e-mailing you each a number at the end of the pledge period in early March. Speaking of which, if I don’t already have your e-mail, expect a Twitter message from us shortly.

  1. Bummer. Garth Snow hates children-to offset that a bit, I’m changing my pledge from $2. to $10. It’s not much, but this won’t be the last pledge from me. Go Wings!
