I thought that loophole was closed.
That's not a loophole, that's how they were designed to work. Islanders buy him out => he can't sign with the Islanders again. I assume any attempt to trade him to the Islanders would also be rejected.
The loophole was something like... trade DiPietro to VAN, VAN buys him out, NYI sign him cheaper.
