They have a good, young team and shouldn't be giving up important assets to save money.
But if the current ownership is looking to maximize $$ (to recoup the $$ lost over the years), getting Rick off the books, while having the new area and a playoff team would increase the max value if selling.

Either way, I am happy for the Isles to be done with DiPi, just an awful situation for him and the team. At least Tavares came out of the situation, but seriously, DiPi hurts himself in an all star game and his career is ruined

There has to be some point where a GM says we can use the money elsewhere. I think there is some areas where can use that 24 million in house. One, Dallas's treatment of Derrick Roy's injury shows we may not be handling injuries right. Maybe we hire a personal trainer to follow around Tyler Myers so he finally bulks up. Better equipment? More Scouts/Analytics? Training/Development? If that 24 million is coming out any of those areas then my asking price is high. Strome, 15th pick and a 2nd. If 24 million stays in Pegula's pocket, then as a fan, I'll just take the 2nd.

Let some other team buy him out.

DiPietro and the Islanders 1982 Stanley Cup for a conditional 7th round pick. All NHL records are re-written with the Sabres as the 1982 champions. For $24 million, Pegula literally buys a Cup.
