Look for Nabokov to get more rest next season

From David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News:

Nabokov was in nets for a league-high 77 games last season, but Wilson said he thinks that number will be reduced.

"Our goal," the G.M. said, "is to have two guys rested by playoff time."

Good plan by Wilson. Last season, Nabokov played in 77 games which was far too many. The mind-boggling aspect of his high total of games played was the amount of times he played on back-to-back nights and againt poor teams. This time around, the Sharks will be far better off resting their polished netminder for the post-season.

Ballhype: hype it up!
