This actually saves Wang about $13.5M over the remaining term of the contract (and more if you consider the NPV of delaying the payment stream).

While I feel for RPD, because his luck with injuries was attrocious, collecting $1.5M per year for the next almost 20 years is a pretty nice "golden parachute"!
RD did hit the owner-offering-up-ridiculous-contracts lotto.

Nothing even approaches what happened to him - none of which is his fault. Who wouldn't have signed after seeing all those 0000000s?

I would never pick a goalie in the top 15 - and definitely not in the top 5. There are just way too many good to great goalies that come from the 2nd - whatever round to roll the dice on a high-draft-pick goalie.

Snow should package DiPietro with a young player like Niederreiter and a pick to a deep pocketed team that aren't going to use their compliance buyout and would have no problem absorbing the expense.

The Isles would get DP off the books and the recieving team would get some young assets for the cash

Blackburn would have been a steady NHLer had he not got injured.

Makes sense if they decide that they are going to start spending to the cap and competing. Until then, however, they may as well keep DiPietro and let insurance pay his salary for most of the season.

Dipetro used to be one of my favourite goalies back in the day. Kid used to be a physical freak but now he is just a broken middle aged man. If he gets bought out I hope the leafs give him a two way deal. I'd love to see Ricky bounce back but given his destroyed groin and damaged (left?) knee, poor guys career is done.

that's classic when you bring it up in a DiPetro thread. People seem to forget DP was a very good goalie before he hit the injury bug.

He was one of my favorite goalies as well it's a shame that injuries ruined him.

He was average, with one or MAYBE two above average years. Never in the top ten in save%, wins, GAA or shutouts. His olympic record and play was nothing special, he won two playoff games in his career. He was never very good. One year in the top five in save % with a .919 %. Twice he had five shutouts in a year. He was at his best one of the better middle tier goaltenders. All star appearance was deserved but also an anomaly. He hurt his team with bonehead plays more as much as he helped them with stellar goaltending.

Perhaps if he had a team in front of him during his playoff runs he would look better, no? I watched that series between the leafs and Isels and I remember Ricky being left out to dry on many occasions.

You weren't playing very close attention as he never faced the Leafs in the playoffs. Osgood did with Snow backing up. DP lost to the Sabres and Lightning.

Well played but the point however remains the same. Did Dipetro have defenders that would atleast assist him during that matchup?

Well they also traded Bertuzzi, Chara, Spezza, McCabe, Berard and others. The franchise is much better with Snow running it but what a hole to dig out from.
He had deserving numbers from the second half of 2007 and first half of 2008.

If you remember he actually sustained his first big injury from something he tweaked during the Skills Competition that year. That AS Game was pretty much the beginning of the end for the guy.

The Islanders need to stay above cap minimum. If DiPietro is claimed on waivers or if he is bought out the Islanders would be under the minimum cap. Niether Thomas nor Nabokov are playing well at the moment (& Thomas not at all) and both are older than Luongo. The rookie goalies the Islanders have are not ready, if ever, to play a leading roll in the NHL.

Of the teams that may be looking to improve in goal, the Islanders are a team with depth in quality prospects including a number of lottery picks. With Kesler and Booth back, the Canucks are no longer a team that absolutely is looking for NHL ready players. The Islanders could afford to give the Canucks an offer the Canucks cannot refuse in order to solidify their goal position and still not seriously harm the Islanders prospect depth.

Personally if the Islanders do trade with the Canucks for one of Vancouver's goalies, I think the Islanders will go afterr Cory Schnieder rather than Roberto Luongo.

Which players or prospects do you think Vancouver would be asking for in return?

Nobody is going to pay $36 million for Niederreiter. You might have a hard time if you included Tavares. That is a significant amount of money and there aren't too many owners willing to accept having to pay that out.

Anyone who says this kid was not going to be a great goalie is nuts. Injuries cost him a stellar career. I hate him and the Islanders but he was very good and good for the game before he pulled up lame

Lets see. Thats over $40 million counting this season's salary the other team would have to shell out just to buyout DiPietro. You seem pretty eagar to invest that kind of money. I'll tell you what. I've got this great bridge for sale & it just so happens I'm only asking $39 million. That is a million dollars cheaper than DiPietro and unlike earning nothing buying out PiPietro, think of the millions more dollars you will earn charging drivers wanting to cross your bridge every day. Cash only though (in small, unmarked denominations) and no refunds.
