Goodbye Khabi, Hello Nyls?

You had to know this was coming:

"If Chicago Blackhawks GM Dale Tallon thought he was fooling anybody this summer when he said Nikolai Khabibulin had a future in Chicago after signing Cristobal Huet, that sham came to an end Monday when the Hawks put Khabibulin on waivers.

"The Blackhawks are trying to clear salary cap space by getting rid of Khabibulin and insiders say the player they’re targeting now is Washington Capitals center Michael Nylander, who has three years left on his contract with a salary cap hit of $4.875 million.

"Sources say the Blackhawks have already made two serious offers to the Capitals for Nylander and believe he would be a good candidate to replace Robert Lang and play with oft-injured Martin Havlat."
