Nabokov giving it a think

With only a few hours left until the trade deadline passes, goaltender Evgeni Nabokov is mulling a contract offer from the Islanders, a source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.

Regardless of whether he accepts the deal, Nabokov is not expected to be moved. Despite significant interest in the 36-year-old netminder -- the goaltending market is thin for teams looking to bolster the position -- GM Garth Snow told ESPNNewYork.com that he has no intention on trading him.

Al Montoya might be another case, however.

A source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun that the Islanders are shopping Montoya.
