It sounds like at least one of those two will be available come July 5th. New York Newsday's Arthur Staples is reporting that Nabokov will likely head to free agency on July 5th instead of re-signing with the Islanders prior.
Nabokov, 37, spent the past two seasons with the Islanders after heading the KHL following the 2010 season. After the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals (but before he left for Russia), the Flyers acquired the rights to sign Nabokov from the San Jose Sharks before he became an unrestricted free agent. In 41 starts last season for the Islanders, he went 23-11-7 with a 2.50 GAA and a .910 SV%.
