Wang Holding Up Negotiations

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Slap Shots has learned that talks between the Islanders and Group II free agent DiPietro have not yet even begun, with Snow following orders from I, Me, My Charles Wang not to engage in a dialogue with the goaltender's representatives until the owner returns at the end of the month from a lengthy summer vacation. (Neil Smith as well was not permitted to speak independently to DiPietro's people.) This edict means that the team and DiPietro will have approximately two weeks in which to complete a deal, given Wang's policy that the Islanders will refuse to sign any of their own free agents if they are not under contract by the first day of training camp.
