Nabokov, Flyers talking, but....

   LOS ANGELES _ The Flyers have been given permission to talk with the agent for San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov and try to make a deal before the free-agency period starts on Thursday.

   But a soucre close to the situation said he was "not optimistic" that a deal could be reached prior to Thursday.

    In other words, Nabokov is expected to test the free-agent waters, and the Flyers will be among a handful of suitors.

    If the Flyers do sign Nabokov before Thursday, they would probably have to give San Jose a late pick in the 2011 draft. The source said no compensation has been decided upon, and he denied an Internet report that the Flyers would give a seventh-round pick if they signed Nabokov prior to Thursday.
