Islanders to Buy Out Rick DiPietro

323

The Islanders will use one of two available compliance buyouts on Rick DiPietro, according to Newsday.

2012-13 Islanders Reflections: Not disappointed

71

How this season brought hope back to a bitter, cynical, prospect-loving Islanders fan.

Pool of Candidates: If not Capuano, then who?

What are the options to replace Jack Capuano if the Islanders decide to move on?

How will you say goodbye to the Coliseum?

51

Even for New York Islanders fans who embrace Brooklyn as a new beginning, this week's news raise the question of how we'll say goodbye to a beloved old venue.

One Last AHLer to Europe

Looks like Tomas Marcinko is heading to MoDo for a tryout. Meh.

So my Pop won this hat at a charity auction. It's signed by the 2011-2012 Islanders. For those of you who don't know my Pop is a die hard Rags fan and gave the hat to me. Names I made out: Calvin de Haan and PA Parenteau and that's about it. Anyone out there know any more?

In Soviet Russia, Gillies punches you!

Trevor Gillies signs with, who else but Vityaz Chekhov: Chekhov is notorious for their, ummm, truculence. Gillies joins the long line of former Islanders/Sound Tigers enforcers to play for Chekhov including Jeremy Yablonski, Chris Simon, Jon "Nasty" Mirasty and Kip Brennan.

Joensuu Returns

4

He comes back on a 1 year deal after playing last season for HV71 in the Elitserien. No word yet on whether it's a one or two way deal. UPDATE: It is apparently a one way deal.

Aufedersein Mark Katic?

19

Looks like DEL team Eisbaren Berlin are interested in bringing in Katic. Could he go to the Land of Sprockets? (Is this fanshot an just excuse for me to reference Sprockets?)

Exit Benn Olson

+

To Houston (Minny's AHL affiliate). Not terribly upset to see him go, he was kind of buried on the depth chart.

Exit Mikko Koskinen?

14

Report out of Finland that Mikko Koskinen is headed to SM-Liiga club KalPa. No word from the organization on this though.

Brock Nelson getting interviewed for UND's website last year. Interesting tidbit coming out, he passed up a year with Green Bay in the USHL last year to go to UND instead.

So this is more to ask a question for the LHH Universe: The Isles will be visiting the Wild on December 17th (A 7 PM Saturday night game). Would there be any interest in an Upper Midwest Isles get together at this game? Lemme know and we can organize if there is enough interest.

Rob Schremp Hockey takes his "talents" to Sweden

He'll play for MoDo, joining fell ex-Isles Freddy Meyer and Thomas "The Human Turnstile" Pock in Örnsköldsvik.

Jesse Joensuu Signs with HV71

Maybe you could have warned me you'd give up on the NHL before I defended you during the season. Enjoy Sweden. Note: Free agency discussion continues in the next thread.

2011 NHL Draft Profile: Oskar Klefbom, the Other Big Swedish Defenseman

18

Oscar Klefbom represents "the other" big Swedish defenseman in the 2011 NHL Draft. Will a team go for steady and reliable?

Djurgarden release Stefan Ridderwall

1

Looks like Garth made the right call not bringing him over last offseason.

Figren to Linkoping?

8

På Svenska. Figren's ELC is up at the end of the season and he will be an RFA. This season has been his best since going pro in 2008-2009. In short the article says Figren is frustrated that he hasn't been called up yet and if he isn't by the end of the season he will take his stick and go home. Literally. Linkoping seem to be the front runners for his services with Frolunda, AIK and Djurgarden also on the mix. Remember when Figren was with Djurgaren on loan during the 2008-2009 season, management was highly critical of both his attitude and work ethic, a trend that continued into his first season with Bridgeport last year. Has the bad attitude come back after he seemed to have turned his act around?

Katie Strang expects a call-up on defense. There was no early indication who that might be. Bingham gave the team tomorrow morning off, and they’re leaving for Manchester in the afternoon, so I assume any call-up will show himself in Philly before we hear about it.

Video of Zenon Konopka's dressing room interview from earlier today. I think many Isles fans will be joining him in tearing down their Mario Lemieux posters when they get home.

Reese demoted (again)

10

He will be sorely missed... by the Isles opponents.

In Defense of Jesse: Why You Shouldn't Give Up On Joensuu Quite Yet

Jon Sim on Unconditional Waivers

Via the Isles official Twitter, Katie Strang and the Sound Tigers. Strang reports even if he clears, Sim will no longer be a member of the organization. UPDATE - Reese waived as well.

[UPDATED] Jeremy Colliton Recalled; DiPietro Returns for Groin Eval

52

Via Strang, Fornabaio and the Isles official site. Unfortunately I think this is a sign that Frans might be more injured then they initially let on, otherwise why would you recall a defensive forward from Bridgeport? [Update: Also, Isles say Rick DiPietro is headed back to L.I. early to have his groin injury evaluated.]

Islanders New Year's Resolutions

91

Well, its a new year. And a new year means a fresh start, a new begining, a blank page even if you're team currently sits 29th out of 30 NHL teams. As we welcome 2011, I thought I would take a look...

Regis "Pierre" McGuire to Mike Milbury during the first intermission of the Winter Classic, cementing his place at the worst, most oblivious hockey commentator in the history of the world.

So sayeth Bob McKenzie. Good news as the "lower body injury" isn't too serious.
