DiPietro's 15-year deal is actually looking better and better. It's a 4.5 million cap hit and if he has to retire, insurance pays off his contract (with 0 cap hit). I'd much rather have DiPietro signed for 12 more years at $4.5, than $7 million for the next four or five.
I might be wrong but I remember that insurance would only do up to 6 years for these contracts now. It started with Dipietro`s
