Nabokov to Pens (e4)
The situation in Pittsburgh has been changed a bit. Pittsburgh is now deep in talks with San Jose about sending underacheiving goaltender Evgeni Nabokov to Pittsburgh for young goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. The Pens feel that Andre-Fleury isn't performing to his highest potential in a always last-place team with Pittsburgh, and believes he will shine with San Jose, a stacked team, who can improve players instantly (i.e. Thornton and Cheechoo). San Jose wants to trade Nabokov because he doesn't want to be a backup under a young goaltender in Vesa Tosakla, as Toskala would probably play 70 games, and Nabokov's skill would be wasted.
