Islanders Worse Than Drunken Sailors

DiPietro signs 15 yr NHL deal

The New York Islanders will announce today that they have signed goalie Rick DiPietro to a 15-year, $67.5 million contract.
Islanders’ owner Charles Wang, who was directly involved in the negotiations, had indicated that if DiPietro didn’t sign by Friday, when the team opens training camp in Nova Scotia, that DiPietro would not play in the 2006-07 season.
The deal is believed to be the longest in NHL history and second only in major North American pro sports to the $25-million, 25-year deal Magic Johnson signed with the NBA Lakers in 1981.
