with CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio (who is sitting next to me) we’ve
learned that the Philadelphia Flyers are interested in acquiring the
rights to goaltender Evgeni Nabokov from San Jose.
mean that Nabokov is the next Flyers goaltender as the team is merely
trying to get the rights to negotiate a contract with Nabby before the
July 1 free agency bell rings.
The Sharks have already stated that
they’re moving on without Nabokov, so the Flyers have the upper hand in
these negotiations. They’ll have to send someone back though, in order
to sign Nabokov to a contract.
