Marty Biron To Ny Isles (e5)


Recommended Posts

this is weird. I smell something coming, they can't have 3 number one goalies :blink:

what you smell is dipietro out for the next year and as money puck said maybe his career ... the guy signed a what? 15 year deal and has played half a season since?

Does Dipietro still collect the money for the remaining of his contract if his career is over due to injury?

If so, that is one lucky SOB!

I believe so... Which is why everyone said NY was stupid to consider signing an unproven goaltender to that term in the first place. Having Roloson and Biron on the roster sure sounds to me like Dipietro is out long-term. Why else would they do it?

Even if DiPietro's not injured for sure, it could just be insurance. They got burned pretty bad last year thinking that he would recover only for him to get hurt again and ended up using Yann Danis as their number one for half of the season (although he actually did pretty well for a while). It's not like they'll be even close to the cap, so they don't have to worry about this extra salary for Biron.

Personally, I'm wondering more about why Biron signed with the Islanders than about why the Islanders signed Biron. Unless they've told him that DiPietro's out for sure, there's a solid chance he won't get much playing time. And even if it is just him and Roloson...he doesn't neccessarily figure to come out #1 from that match-up either.

I believe that is correct. However, ownership would still have pay him every single bit of his salary.

No.

Article 50.10 (d) (ii)

The Player Salary and Bonuses of the Player that has been deemed

unfit-to-play shall continue to be counted toward the Club's

Averaged Club Salary as well as count against the Players' Share

during the League Year in which the Player is deemed unfit-toplay

(including during the period such unfit-to-play Player is on a

Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception Conditioning Loan

to another league);

They can exceed the cap though.

I wouldn't start this off with "No.", it's a technicality, for all intents and purposes what people were saying above is correct. If a salary doesn't count against the cap, or it does count and the team can go over by that amount, it's the same net difference.

As for having to pay him, I believe insurance covers it.

They can exceed the cap yes, but if they choose not to it still counts against the cap. You're right though it ends up being the same thing, however the question was, "Does it count against the cap?" :P
