      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Waivers] Islanders Place Dipietro on Waivers

Recommended Posts

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.

Gotta give him some credit for preservering through his band-aid issues.

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.

If a team could get a really good player out of the deal I'm sure a few teams would take on Dipietro's contract to buyout. 1 million or 1.5 million a year till 2029 is chump change to some teams if they can get a significant player to put them over the top. Even one deep playoff run that a team might not have had would payoff the cost of buying Dipietro out.

I really do think that Dipietro will be able to be traded once the NYI agree to absorb 50% of his cap hit/salary.

Yes, they will pay in assets to achieve this. They do, however, have a very strong young base and quality prospects in their system. If they can manage it correctly, the timing of the move to Brooklyn with this movement could be paramount.

If the purse strings can be loosened, and the the monies spent wisely, they could be a big splash player for FAs as soon as this offseason.

Well...let's see...it's a long term contract given to a goaltender, which is just ****ing foolish to start with considering the higher risk of injury...Luongo is a goaltender...hmm...who the frack am I supposed to compare it to, Kovalchuk's? Zetterberg's? Last I checked,. those two are actually doing their part to earn their contracts. And they're forwards. I was not comparing the players or what they've done in their careers at all...not by a long shot...are you sure your name shouldn't be PLAGUE...because you're certainly PLAGUING me right now, even before I've had my coffee, ass.
