With that contract, hope is a waste of time.

Maybe Philly can sign him to a 32 yr deal after the buyout and then try to trade him 2 weeks later

Poor fans.

Maybe the Oilers are stupid enough to try this, get dem 1st overalls!


But in all honesty, no one will ever accept that contract.

Think DP still better than Schneider.

A compliance buyout pays 100% of the players salary with $0 against their cap; That just doesn't seem very Wang-like. Acquiring a player that counts against their cap but that they don't have to pay any money, does seem Wang-like.

I suppose if they did it, it would be a very big gesture towards their fans that they are willing to start spending money...

Wang is placing himself on waiver according to the Post. Went to a Manhatten investment group to look over all assets related to the team to prepare them to sell.

I do NOT believe he is going to be bought out.. I could be wrong and please god let me be wrong but from everything we've heard surrounding the team Wang is not going to cut a check to DP on a buy out.

This is just waivers and there's no chance anyone claims him, they're recalling Poulin from Bridgeport and DP will probably become the regular starter down there with Nilsson still injured.

Wouldnt be surprised if Columbus picks him up. Maybe even Dallas depending on the length of time Lehtonen's out.

Of course Wang won't buy him out. He's trying to sell the team and get the next sucker to do it.

Whoever buys the team should realize this though.

The day the Isles traded away Luongo and Jokinen in return for Kvasha and some other guy (cant even recall who) still haunts this team.

They need to purge all traces of anything from that era.

I love that DiPietro bleeds NYI colors, but he brings nothing to the team at this point.

Glad to see Wang finally accept that and allow the team to turn the page.

Who gets called up? Poulin?

What a mess for the Islanders. I'd say the chances of him getting claimed are 0. Interesting to see what their intentions are here...
