Two Dancing Partners: Flyers, Another Team Interested In Evgeni Nabokov's Rights

One of the prevailing themes throughout the first round of the NHL Draft was that the San Jose Sharks were going to send Nabokov's rights to the Philadelphia Flyers. 

I am told the Flyers and Sharks are talking this deal but it is NOT close to being done.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Sharks GM Doug Wilson confirms 2 teams wants Nabokov's rights. This is going to drag into tomorrow w/Flyers and someone elseless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

 

While this would make some sense for the Flyers who are in need of goaltending at this point and with Nabokov looking for a slight upgrade from his $5.375 million cap hit, it could be a match made in heaven. One thing to note though, any contract that Nabokov signs now is a 35+ contract, which means that the full cap hit does not go away if the player is bought out.
