"With nine years still left on his deal, Dipietro told Newsday he has no plans to retire.

"Nothing like that has even crossed my mind," he said. "Knock on wood, the doctors have said this is something you can come back from, lots of athletes have. I know I still want to play."

Somebody should be in jail!!

27M 6 years > 172 games played> 157K per game> 2617K per minute played!!!

And this is exactly why long contracts are bad. Even if you can LTIR the player, it just causes a whole bunch of drama in the background.

Most especially at such a focal point as the position of goaltending.

I mean I get the reason for the long term (prorate / reduce the cap hit). In dipietro case it is both bottom line and cap proration as nothing was front loaded on the contract (unlike Bryz who in the first 3 years gets 24 million of the 51 million).
