"According to league sources, the Flyers have a verbal agreement in place with the San Jose Sharks to fork over a seventh-round pick next season if they can sign San Jose's Evgeni Nabokov before July 1, when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Don Meehan, the agent who represents Nabokov, told CSNPhilly.com earlier that his client's no-trade clause is not an issue. San Jose obviously has given the Flyers permission to get a deal done and Meehan is willing to engage the Flyers ahead of July 1."
I'm surprised that there isn't a thread about this on the first page. Noted that the dude hasn't produced big in the biggest pressure situations at times, i.e. playoffs and olympics (he did make it to the western conference finals this year though, yes his team was stacked, but he could have choked worse earlier, that duly noted), but this dude seems to possibly be the key to ending the revolving door goalie in Philly and I find it a little scary to think that the Flyers will FINALLY have a quote unquote "franchise" caliber goalie if they manage to sign him. The cap raising makes it actually possible that they might sign him and might be part of the reason, (this deal) that the Flyers were willing to trade Hamhuis' rights to us. Anyone elses' thoughts, opinions, etc. is welcomed.
