I've heard the exact opposite.

(PS: it's content, not contempt)

The big question mark is Nino still a top 30 prospect in this league? If he was, then sure, back up the dump truck of money and basically buy him. Thing is, he may not be and $24 million is a huge gamble.

Besides, if the Isles can keep DiPietro's contract on the books and its costing them no money and helping them meet the cap floor, he's not going anywhere.
