I wonder if there would be any bites? I can't imagine that there would be.

Dude has played 50 NHL games total in the pasts 5 seasons and is signed to eternity.

EDIT: It is now being reported in other places on Twitter from reputable sources. So looks to be true.

probably getting ready for an amnesty buyout in the summer.

Highly doubt there would be any takers.

Thanks for the info OP!

Part of me feels sorry for him.
The majority of me would swap careers with him in an instant.

Lol DiPietro will be the albatross around that franchise's neck until he ends his career. No one is going to take him. I feel bad for the guy...

Probably to send him to the farm, see if he can rediscover his game.

Wonder if they are in the market for another goalie? Hiller and a few other decent guys could be available.

I can't see NYI buying him out. They don't need to free up cap space and always struggle to hit the cap floor... why spend cash that avoids a cap hit that you need.

Having him play some time in the minors seems like the only logical reasoning. Maybe also hoping for a miracle in someone to pick him up.

Some people don't trust HockeyBuzz, so here's another source:

@theScore: The Islanders are reportedly set to place goaltender Rick DiPietro on waivers. http://t.co/JCTSm3OrTn

Could this be a precursor to a move? Sending him to the minor's doesn't eliminate his cap hit from the team with the new CBA. Or is it simply, like said above, a move because he is just that bad?

This is the ridiculous contract that MG should have taken note of before signing Luongo to his absurdly large contract, IMO. This is an example of what happens when a player signs a massive deal and quite frankly busts, injuries notwithstanding.

Exactly.

It's an issue with players making large sums of money and long term contracts - if a player has a downward turn in their career - no one wants him.

If he didn't have the contract he has, he would probably be picked up by a team with say a young goalie who needs a mentor and/or a team with an injured goalie. As it stands now, we may never see Dipietro in the NHL again...

The Isles essentially took Dipietro for:

Luongo
Oli Jokinen
Dany Heatly

Where could they have been now?

It's the right move, but people have to use this opportunity to ridicule Rick DiPietro and the New York Islanders.

He needs to play games. He's played only 50 games since the 2008-09 season. That's nearly five years.

Yeah ok bud. I want you to think about it like this. Say the shoe was on the other foot, and it was LUONGO who signed an incredibly large contract then played only 50 games in nearly 5 years. I'm not ridiculing DiPietro, I'm ridiculing the decision to give this young kid a lifetime contract in the 6th year of his career, AFTER signing a similar deal with Alexei Yashin before the 2001-2002 season of 10 years. I'm not questioning DiPietro...I'm questioning Isles management for making a bad business decision.

PS: Looking at the trade of Jokinen and Luongo for Parrish and Kvasha, holy cow did that backfire.

Probably grasping at the last straw before buyout. Doubt anyone takes him. we're having a tough enough time moving an all star thats playing some of his best hockey right now because of the length. Question mark goalie at 2.75?? would still be a bad move for any team.

I guess this might make them for from speculated possible player to a serious player in luongo/schneider discussions. Garth snow makes alot of head scratcher moves too, this is very good news for us haha. Being a former goalie you would think he might have a higher regard and appreciation for lou than most other gm's as well.
