From Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy:
On Sept. 12, 2006, the New York Islanders signed goalie Rick DiPietro(notes) to a 15-year contract worth $67.5 million. Anyone else want to climb into the time machine to tell them they’d be desperately signing a soon-to-be-40-year-old starter to a two-year contract worth $5 million in 2009?
Dwayne Roloson(notes) joins the Islanders, and if that doesn’t speak volumes about their concerns about DiPietro’s heath then nothing does.
