Rick DiPietro!!

Let say there is an amnesty clause in the new CBA and NYI can finally free themselves from Dipietro contract.

Dipietro would now be an UFA.

Any team interested to give him a shoot?

I imagine it would be a league minimum, two way contract, allowing him to play in the AHL if it doesn't work. I could see a 1 year contract with an optional year.

Somewhat of a "low risk" contract but who could bring reward if Dipietro defy the expectation and stay healthy. (I could not resist to put Low risk and Dipietro in the same sentence!)

As a Montréal fan i could see him as a AHL backup in Hamilton. Our AHL goalies are struggling right now. But i guess other team could give him a more important role (AHL starter, with opportunity of call-up ? Or NHL backup? NHL replacement in case of an injury?)
