I doubt the isles sign 37 yr old Nabby longterm. Poulin's been erratic this season, Nilson is battling some injury that the secretive Isles are mum about and although Koskinen's having a solid season, it's in some Finnish league. Isles imo aren't ready to give up on the three, but don't feel any are ready to take over as the #1.

A DiPietro buyout would be $1.5m per. Wang wants DiPietro's contract to help him reach the cap floor and roughly $3.6m of it does, while he's in the AHL.

As long as Wang is majority owner, I don't see DiPietro being bought out until Wang's in Brooklyn, with more revenue coming in.If Wang sells the whole team or the majority share, a new owner may prefer an immediate buyout.
