Isles to place DiPietro on waivers
By Victoria Matiash
The New York Islanders have apparently had enough of goaltender Rick DiPietro this season. According to Newsday's Arthur Staple, the club plans to place DiPietro on waivers at noon, Friday.
"Intent is to send DiPietro to Bridgeport. Kevin Poulin to be recalled once DiPietro clears ..."
With the 22-year-old Poulin, the Islanders are clearly looking to the future beyond Evgeni Nabokov (37 years old). A future that probably doesn't include DiPietro.
