The isles and DiPietro's agent could make the case to the insurance co, that DiPietro's unable to play more then a handful of games, without his hips/groin issues landing him on IR.

DiPietro would have to be willing to retire and support the team's argument.
It doesn't sound like he's willing to do that. I think after his last 2011-2012 injury and surgery, he told Newsday that retirement hadn't crossed his mind.
