Evgeni Nabokov Re-Signs

Previously pending UFA goalie Evegeni Nabokov has re-signed with the New York Islanders for one more year at the price of $2.5 Million. He was expected to be a hot commodity this year when he would hit free agency. With many teams interested in a goalie, (Toronto, Tampa Bay, Columbus, Philadelphia, Chicago) this is a significant blow to the quality of goalies in free agency market.

Remaining goalies for this Free Agency that stand out include,

Cristobal Huet: Probably not coming back and certainly not his contract size.
Martin Brodeur: If he's returning its in New Jersey
Dwayne Roloson: His age is a large problem.
Antero Niitymaki: Probably the best backup available left.
Thomas Vokoun: Will probably sign on with Washington for another year.
Jonas Gustavsson: If he does not re-sign with the Maple Leafs, he will be a hot commodity.
Martin Biron: Seems content in New York.
Josh Harding: Will be a goalie highly sought after.
