15-year, $67.5 million contract. Garth Snow's first big move as a GM is the longest deal in NHL history? DiPietro hasn't done anything amazing since coming to the NHL, and doesn't deserve a 15 year deal. In the salary cap world, you dont know what will happen. Say in ten years the cap drops significantly, the Isles are screwed because Dipietro still has five more years left!! I don't even know what Wang was thinking with allowing this one, but if I am Neil Smith, I'm happy I'm no longer around. The Isles also signed free agent center Viktor Kozlov today to a one year deal.

Carolina may be after a defenseman now, as Kaberle may miss the first six months of the season. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see Brian Leetch's name come up as far as Carolina is concerned.

Detroit is apparently closing in on that scoring winger they've been after. Carter and Zherdev appear to be at the top of their list.
