Nabakov talks to SJ reporter David Pollak
He's injured and won't play tonight, of course, and he said that's prompted some of his teammates to accuse him of having "Sharks flu."
But, Nabokov said, he had been looking forward to tonight's game for weeks and wanted to face the team on which he played for a decade.
"Absolutely," he said. "It's always nice to see ex-teammates and to play the game against them would be awesome. This was one of the things, when I came to training camp, I looked at the schedule and put a little dot right there.">>
Pollak will apparently have more on his thought process regarding reporting/not-reporting later on.
