Dipietro Done for season: Snow confused

It's now official, Islander's "franchise" goaltender, Rick Dipietro, is done for the year needing to rest his ailing knee.
I bet GM Garth Snow (lot's of Hockey East connections here) feels reaaaally good about signing this guy to a 15 year deal a few summers ago. Since that deal, Dipietro has the 5th worst GAA of netminders who've played at least 130 games. Now you've got a 27 year old goalie, locked up till he's 40, who's had two knee surgeries in less than a year and who wasn't that good to begin with?

Ladies and Gentlemen, the New York Islanders.


  1. Maybe if he stayed more than a year, then we would have had some NCAA hopes. Besides, Bonesaw isn't a BU alum anyway.

    Go Minutemen!
