While I find it amusing for Leaf fans to be on the receiving end of these types of proposals for a change, why in the hell would they trade 2 years of horrible contract for 9?

That's easily one of the worst contracts out there.

Do you Islanders fans think that he'll retire within the next few years?
He came into this season, saying he felt better then he had in yrs.He then went on to play 8 games.

I expect if he cannot face the fact,that he can't stay healthy,the isles will eventually buy him out.They bought out Yashin when he was owed more $.

DiPietro's $1.5m buyout is not a huge amount.I think it would be more embarrassing then anything else because it will run or 16-18 yrs.

The OP is not from an Islander fan.

I think most NYI fans are waiting for him to retire or be bought out.

I think Komisarek will play better in a defensive system this year

Why would any team want Dipietro? I would actually keep Gomez before trading for Dipietro. That says it all.

Leafs will not be using a NYI 1st round pick, to draft a potential franchise player.

DiPietro's buyout will be $1.5m per,if he's bought out.

If he retires,insurance pays the bulk of his contract.
Until 2030.

So long as Wang doesn't care,why should fans?

Wow.There's a shocker.

2 yr of Gomez at $5m per vs. 9 yrs of DiPietro at $4.5m and a Habs fan would prefer the Gomez contract.

I didn't see that one coming.

But no one wants to waste 4.5M a year for 9 more years, and that is very far from being desperate. I understand trying to get to the cap floor, but you'd be ridiculous not completely get rid of the contract at the cost of one 1st rounder.
If you really have trouble spending 4.5M a year tell Snow to ask Sather how to.

We are not super close to the cap, and we just got some cap relief by buying out Armstrong anyway. After trading Schenn there is no longer a surpluss of experienced D on the team, especially of the shut-down/defensive-specialist kind.

And I am actually interested in seeing what new coach Carlyle can do for Komi. Remember, this is the same coach that got Beauchemin back into form after leaving Toronto. I have high hopes that Carlyle can get Komi back into a player we could use.
This! I have a feeling Komi will do better under RC than RW

Pissy? In a league of thirty teams, what makes you think I care if the Leafs move Komisarek to the Islanders? For Dipietro? I don't care what his insurance is!




Burke/Seguin joke? From an Islanders fan?

You didn't get pissy over Komi or DiPietro.

You got pissy when I said the isles,who drafted 4th overall in the recent draft,would not move next season's 1st rounder to salary dump DiPietro.

Look to land a potentially high, 2013 1st rounder elsewhere.

It's not a joke.

Don't get bent because you are obviously hoping to see the Leafs,land a potentially high lottery pick the way Boston did in the Kessel trade.

Believe me, I don't care about any deal with the Islanders, picks or none, because Dipietro is so toxic the first round pick doesn't even cover the rottenness of that contract.

I wouldn't touch Dipietro if we got back your first round pick! There's no point in going near that train wreck. It's yours, for life, no one is getting bent over that one...

You mean Reinheart right? Rielly isn't on the Isles

This is a lose/lose situation for the Leafs. DiPietro isn't better than Riemer and Komisarek's contract is desirable to cap floor teams.

Ok.Again.
In my first post, I pointed out what a bad trade it is for the Leafs and that I can't understand why they'd do it because DiPietro can't stay heathy.


In later posts,I pointed out that Wang is not trying to salary dump DiPietro,the OP did not come frm a NYI fan and that if Wang has to buy him out,that this is Wang's concern.

No Komisarek might be bad but Rick is even worse and he is signed for 9 more years. Rather keep Komisarek in the pressbox at 4.5M for 2 more years. Rick is done.

DP is not in the team's plans for this year. Garth spoke at a recent meeting of former season ticket holders (please come back), and hyped the core of young players and prospects. He also praised their solid goaltending situation, having a vet like Nabokov to mentor up and coming Kevin Poulin and Anders Nilsson. It was no accident that he did not include DP.

Still, there will be no DP buyout. While the team has gotten no value since the contract was signed, management still likes him. Their true hope is that he gets back to full health and earns his salary at some point. The whole point of the 15 year contract was to spread out the salary and cap hit to make him a relative bargain over time. After 5 years, he is now the 11th highest paid goalie. If it had gone according to plan, halfway through the contract he would be a great goalie in his prime, with a cap hit below the average starting goalie. Obviously injuries wrecked that plan. However, the team hopes it's not too late. He's still only 30. They would like him to get back in net, whether it's 2013 or even 2014. If he can, then they would have a relative bargain in goal.

The above video is the correct answer, even though I'd do it in a heartbeat as an Isles fan but I don't know why in gods name any team would want D3P0.

I would be shocked... Thats the securityof a long term contract; even if you're hurt, you still get paid... Thats why Crosby wanted term.
I've read that if DiPietro retires,he will get all the money left on his contract.Insurance will pay the bulk of it and Wang the remainder.

If he is bought out,I think he will get 2/3 of his remaining contract.

He'd make out better if he retired.But,he's only 30 and doesn't want to believe his career is over.

I think his personel friend Wang still likes him.

I don't agree that there won't be a buyout though.Wang was also a personel friend of Yashin and eventually bit the bullet on a Yashin buyout.

47 games played over a 4 yr total,shows DiPietro can't stay healthy.It's too bad because he's such a competive kid.Still,he's young and outgoing enough, to move from player to another role in hockey like announcing.
