Will buy out.

Buyout = noun

Buy out = compound verb

Sorry, pet peeve of mine…

I think you missed the headline Dakkster.

Sure it’s a bad contract but I thought for sure they’d leave it.  I hope Dipietro can move on.  He’s been depressed about the whole situation there.

Now he has $24 million to spend on therapy until he’s 50.

He’ll be the Bobby Bonilla of the hockey world.  Nice money if you can get it.

Hope he finds a way to professional success though.  The money’s nice, but nobody wants to be a laughingstock.

Another team bailed out from horrible management.

It would be kinda funny if DiPietro made the argument he was not healthy enough to be bought out.

Geez, no kidding, huh?  As soon as money becomes the ends, well, life is guaranteed to be pretty much meaningless.

It was certainly good fun to laugh at the Isle for the last few years over that contract, but I wish DiPietro the best.
