    Next Step in the Di Pietro Saga

    The Islanders will soon put DiPietro on waivers:

    Though I doubt there will be any takers I think this is the first step in the team buying him out in the summer.

    Shocker! With only 23 more years left on his deal you think they would ride it out.

    Another great maneuver of Chiarelli's ? A pick like Spooner or KoKo for the future ?

    Jacobs better do what he has to when PCs contract comes up.

    I hear you, and you arent wrong, but it isnt his fault that he got offered a ludricrous contract.  Are you faulting Savard for still collecting on his contract while he's doing nothing?

    He's a local guy, so I always pull for them doing well.

    I know i may be alone here and thats fine, but the guy has just had enormously terrible luck, cant fault him for that.

    Is there some sort of advantage to doing this now?  Seems odd.

    @Doc - Well they only have 5 forwards signed next season, only have 2 defensman under RFA control. Snow probably wants to make a run at Thomas contract wise before the draft.

    I'll say this about Di Pietro. When he was health and playing, one of the best goalies I have ever seen. 

    Good for us he isn't around, because he would have made them a consistant contender, much like Marty.

    Only 8 years and $36 million remaining on his contract. I guess Snow wanted a replacement for Yashin in the longterm buyout column on his speadsheet....

    Oh, I don't mean why now with 8 years left on the contract, I mean why now in February, if the intent is to buy him out during the offseason?  Is Snow hoping some other GM will choose today to loose his mind?

    Oh wait, I see now.  He's not currently injured.  Somehow that didn't seem real to me.

    Maybe Charles Wang did an audit and mutterd "Holy syanora Di Pierto is still being paid by us?! Get Garth on the phone now!"...Febuary is strange though for sure.

    Can they still do an accelerated buy-out?  Or was that only within a short window?  Clearly, they're moving toward an amnesty buy-out here, so it would make sense for them to do it now.  Otherwise, they're heading down the road of placing him in carbonite to ensure he doesn't get injured and so be ineligible for the buy-out.

    Savard had a good nhl career before it was stopped short.  RD was given a stupid contract and didnt earn one penny of it.  

    And the crazy thing is.  Someone gives him a contract.  He will likely play a good 10 gms.  Get extended and then trip on the blue line and be out for 10 more yrs.
