Rick DiPietro: Bought Out By Isles

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: The Islanders will buyout the remainder of DiPietro's contract, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.

Recommendation: The team will pay DP $1.5 million over the next 16 seasons but that will not count against the cap. This had to happen especially once the Canucks decided to hold onto Roberto Luongo and his enormous contract as Vancouver was the only possible destination for DiPietro in what would've been a bad contract swap.
