With respect to the possibility of a lockout, the Islanders would have had to pay DiPietro through the duration of the lockout if he were still on the injury list when the season would have started in October.

Dee Karl: John Tavares Keeps a Promise

John Tavares made good on his promise to Season Ticket Holders this week.
