Show Me the Money

Islanders owner Charles Wang must love his goalies, but not equally. Earlier this summer he named backup goalie (and ex-Black Bear) Garth Snow as the team’s general manager, replacing Neil Smith after just a month. He showed even more love to ex-Terrier netminder Rick DiPietro, locking him up for 15 years for $67.5 million. Looking at the longterm security Rick receives and the relatively reasonable per season salary the Islanders are paying for a top NHL goalie, this appears to be a good deal for all parties.
