Why would they do that? If you amnesty buyout DiPietro you're guaranteeing the fact that you'll be paying out a little more than 24 million in real salary. 2/3rds of his remaining contract. If they keep him in the minors they can keep his cap hit on the books and you raise the chance significantly that he'll decide to retire early, which would save the Isles a ton of money.
