DiPietro's contract is just a wee bit more than a 'cap dump'. 1st round picks have been given for short term $4m non-playing guys, New Jersey ditching Vladimir Malakhov for example. DiPietro has 9 years left, at $4.5m, or 18 years @ $1.5m if you buy him out now.

The only escape is if he retires, but that's uncertain. For all we know DiPietro either wants to keep trying and/or isn't about to forfeit $27-40 million dollars.
