Team(s) Interested: Toronto Maple Leafs, Columbus Blue Jackets- On Thursday, it was rumored that Nabokov was traded to the Islanders for Fedor Tyutin. Nabokov is dying to leave the Islanders. The Islanders are dying to have Rick Dipietro healthy. Evgeni Nabokov hasn’t been asked to waive his no-trade clause as of yet, so there is a chance the Islanders may not be looking to trade him. He has been rumored to be sent packing for a while now, but Dipietro can’t stay healthy and who knows exactly how reliable Al Montoya could be? Nabokov, at $575K, is a very cheap, reliable goalie who can rack up wins.  Bob McKenzie tweeted there were “no truth” to the claim of Evgeni Nabokov being dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets for defenseman Fedor Tyutin. The Leafs are also rumored to be in the sweepstakes for Nabby.

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
