Rate this topic

Per Arthur Staple, Isles reporter for Newsday...

Isles will place Rick DiPietro on waivers at noon.
Intent is to send DiPietro to Bridgeport. Kevin Poulin to be recalled once DiPietro clears. #Isles

First person to say "Make it happen, Kenny" will be forced to wear an "I'm an idiot" sandwich board in their town's busiest street corner for 3 straight days. :sly:

And I can't resist bringing up the past. Anyone remember

with Brent Johnson from a few seasons back?

In reality, they probably did it to give him some playing time in the AHL since he has barely played the past few season. Obviously no one is going to claim him, so waivers were small potatoes.

What are the team's salary obligations if he makes it to the AHL?

$4.5 million, as per his cap hit, another great signing by the isles...

They are paying Thomas and DiPietro not to play in the NHL. Brilliant.

And here I thought we went through another lockout in part because the owners needed to shut down salary cap manipulation. Silly me...

They aren't paying Thomas...he's voluntarily sitting out the season and thus does not have to be paid...I think he's technically suspended, so they are paying him only on paper (to increase their cap hit)...

Tavares, by more than twice what they're still paying to Yashin (and will continue to pay him, until the 2014-2015 season).

well anyway... aren't they by chance eligible to buy him out for free under the new CBA?

Is anyone besides me wondering how in the world Garth still has a job? Where are the "Fire Snow" signs?

They're in Brooklyn, waiting to get used at Barclay's.
