EVGENI NABOKOV RUMORS

Islanders 2, Canadiens 0: Evgeni Nabokov collects 59th shutout

These things sometimes happen: A playoff-bound team has a kinda-need-but-don't-really-need-to-win game against a non-playoff team with lots of young job-chasers who have nothing to lose.

Future goaltending options for the New York Islanders

It’s no secret the goaltending for the Islanders this season has been awful. That’s not a suggestion or an opinion, but a fact of the game. The Isles are dead last in the league in cumulative (team) save percentage, a product of relying on two goalies who rank 39th and 44th, respectively, in the stat that matters most for their position. That’s out of 45, by the way. For Islanders...

Should The Islanders Resign Evgeni Nabokov?

from Arthur Staple of Newsday, The last stretch of the Islanders' season isn't just for evaluating the young players who have been rotating through the lineup. Evgeni Nabokov, for example, isn't signed for next season. He's had two injuries, including a groin problem that cost him a month and left the Isles hanging during their ugly November and December...

Nabokov and Islanders shut the door on the Blue Jackets

The goaltending woes of the New York Islanders

To say the New York Islanders have some goaltending issues right now is to say John Spano had a few character foibles in 1996. Spano, you might recall, was the snake behind the greatest fraud in sports history, while the Islanders, you must know, can’t seem to keep a beach ball out of a mouse hole. As a result, one of the NHL’s most entertaining, high-octane teams has been buried...
