Islanders Claim Nabby

Per Katie Strang:

Confirmed: #Isles claim goaltender Evgeni Nabokov

Damn, for some reason I was getting excited about this, though the rational side of me doesn’t think much of Nabokov at all.

Update 12:10 PM: I don’t really know what the Isles have to gain from this.  They are out of the playoff race, don’t have a chance of getting back in, have no chance of resigning Nabby next year and get Dipietro back tomorrow.  Screw Garth Snow and his oversized pads.
