This is a very good point. Forget money, skill, all that jazz. This is a young team looking to become a contender with all the prospects waiting to make the big show, it would be a huge symbolic statement to permanently remove DiPietro from the Islanders organization (at least as a player, if he wants to be an assistant goalie coach or whatever that's fine).

People need to stop thinking of the Islanders as "that team who is still paying DiPietro " and start thinking of the Islanders as "that team with Tavares and all those kids who could become a powerhouse real soon".
