Also, Streit is supposedly close to an extension, which would be a great target for a rental D-man for us.

I'd wager they are waiving Dipstick so he can go to the farm and get in some playing time. After the past few seasons, he really needs it. And no one is going to claim him with that contract, so it's just a formality to send him through waivers.
Fair enuff i was just thinking there was serveral islander fans interested in jb or at least expressing interest which made me think there not sold on extending nabokov and so high on there propects.
