It would allow the islanders to keep their buyout and use it on someone else? hah
RDP has something like $40M left on his contract. The buy-out amount of that is 66%, so do you honestly think that anyone is going to sign up for paying $25+M to RDP? For a guy who has struggled in the back-up role? Really?!?
