New Jersey Devils Won't Put In Claim On Evgeni Nabokov

There was a report out of New Jersey this morning that the Devils would place a claim on Evgeni Nabokov in an attempt to help the Detroit Red Wings get their man, but according to general manager Lou Lamoriello, that won't happen.

Lamoriello said that the Devils won't put in a claim for goaltender Evgeni Nabokov, who was signed by Detroit and placed on waivers today. The Devils would have first shot at him because they are last overall in the NHL.  

The original reports said that the Devils could claim Nabokov and then place him on waivers again, so that the Red Wings would have the opportunity to claim him. Teams still have until 12 p.m. Eastern on Saturday to claim the veteran netminder.
