You've got to be kidding,

Doesn't matter what we think, if it's just up to us then it's easy to not flinch at buying out or burying DiPietro's contract in the minors. Actual NHL GM's do actually have to answer to the owners though, and I'm sure Wang is very concerned about his Wang Bucks. You don't get rich by throwing money away. The NHL is different now, but lets not forget that this is still a world where Wayne Gretzky was essentially traded for money.

Don't get me wrong I'm not suggesting something silly that the Islanders fans should just shut up and take this great offer from us generous Canuck fans, I'm saying that people are completely discounting the realities of dumping DiPietro's contract.
