A 15 year contract for DiPietro!
A very unusual 15-year contract was awarded to New-York Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro. The value of the total contract is around 67.5 millions dollars.
The Islanders has a history of controversial trades and contract awardings and this one is surely another example of management gone wrong. What if in 2 or 3 years DiPietro is injuried or loses his focus? It would put a lot of pressure on the team that would have it`s hands tied in front of their salary cap.
A very discutable move.
