yeah because signing a rookie sensation to a 15 year static contract is the same as signing a proven #1 elite goalie to a structured front loaded 12 year contract.


Rookie sensation? You do realize they gave DiPietro this contract in his 5th year, right? The first few years of his career he went 3-15, 2-5, 23-18 and 30-24-5 respectively...then the year he played following signing the contract he was just a little bit better at 32-19-9...his best season by a mile...but I want whatever Wang and Snow were puffing on when they decided giving this guy a 15-year contract made even the least bit of sense...especially after the contract they gave Yashin the year prior. Structure has zero to do with why I compared the contracts. It's length..and as I said..long term contracts are a bad idea, for any player...and I've always felt that way, regardless of who the player is.

Spin it any way you like. Luongo brought us to game 7 or Luongo won 3 and lost 4 games all on his own.
This doesn't even account for the 3 series against Chicago which could easily be considered a choke.
You seem like more of a Luongo fan than Canucks fan.


Looks like you're the one who's trying to spin things. Luongo bringing us to game seven is a fact not a spin. Now putting the entire blame on him for the meltdown and not on anyone else on the 'team'. Well that's the biggest spin going on here to me.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Is there really any point in turning a DiPietro thread into another "Luongo is amazing"... "No Luongo Sucks" argument?

There are a lot of different places to post that which are a little more on topic.

This all started when I mentioned Luongo's contract. I apologize bro. This thread is about DiPietro...and my post above pretty much sums up what I think about DiPietro and his contract. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

I think if Dipetro hadn't gotten those injuries, he could have been a pretty good deal at a 4.5M cap hit.

Can't believe how many brutal mistakes have been made to my favourite franchise. Always wanted Dipietro to work out, but always knew he wouldn't when his injuries took over. Due to cap reasons, they probably won't buy him out. Hopefully things will somehow turn around for them when they move to Brooklyn.

i feel very sorry for him - yes he is going to make money, but at the end of the day, he doesnt get to do what he loves...play hockey

if he wasnt so injured, that contract would have looked genius

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

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...

I don't feel bad for him at all he is set for life and never has to play another game.

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.


I remember turning to my Dad and saying how Lu could end up like Dipietro and he was like "no because we're saving money"

I'd say the contract didn't pan out for us :lol:

What are u talking about... luongo makes a 5.3 hit... hes played better than ALL 5-7.5 million dollar goalies since his contract. Comparing rd to Lu is an absolute joke.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

You have to pay to make him stay.

His contract is not garbage. He's a high calibre goalie that is NOT busting.

Dipietro's contact, on the other hand, is bad. Has he ever carried the team even for one season?
