Now they just need to trade back for Halak, so we can trade Marleau to them.

Mashinter sent (back) down to AHL; perhaps Nash is close to being activated from IR?

I, too, don't understand how they can be closing in at all unless J-Bo gets injured.

Which we all know, J-Bouw doesn't get injured.

IslandersPB: DiPietro on Waivers: "They ripped my heart out, stabbed it, set it on fire" - on.sny.tv/XJ6tfc

Apparently, he contemplated suicide at one point due to injuries, not playing up to contract/expectations.

Well, first of all, what did he expect? How did he not expect getting waived?

Second of all, I can understand how all this pressure can get to him. Poor guy could never be healthy enough to live his dream.

If someone came to you and said "I am going to pay you $4.5m a year for the next 15 years but you don't get to do any of the things you love" would you take it? That's basically what has happened. He can't play hockey, and on top of that he can't do any 'risky' physical activities of any kind either. Like to Ski? Nope, ride a motorcycle? Nope...

I absolutely get how miserable that would be. It's easy to say "well just quit then" but once you agree to it, and your family becomes accustomed to having that kind of money, changing that can be ever harder than just living with it.

Now pile onto that a bunch of idiotic fans telling you day in and day out how much they hate you, booing you whenever you try to fulfill your obligations... Yah, that sucks.

Well, that's what I meant by the second sentence.

He's still getting paid that money even if he's waived. My point is that the choice of words he used is unfair to the organization that stuck with him for that long to begin with. He only played 50 games in the last 5 years. His save percentage is 85% and 4.1GAA - he shouldn't have been expecting anything else.

Yah I agree, i was just pointing that a lot of people think money = happiness, and it absolutely does not. Hopefully he has a good and supportive family, that can make all the difference.

To be fair, money is better than no money. Imagine if he was a construction worker instead and was constantly getting injured... he can still have the best family in the world but seeing them starve because you can't provide?

HNIC Radio quoting someone that DiPietro saying it was "tongue in cheek" about suicide. GM Snow quoted as saying that they'll be dealing with issue internally.
