Seriously. I give up. I have no idea what’s going on with the Islander’s goalie situation.
The Isles call up Rick DiPietro, he plays his ass off and now they’re sending him back down.
I got this e-mail from the Islanders yesterday:
- Goaltender Rick DiPietro has been returned to the Sound Tigers. The 2000 first rounder started two games for the Islanders, going 1-1-0 with a 2.02 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.
So the Islanders are going to piss off their star prospect by sending him back down for no reason? The Isles are trading their alleged goalie of the future for Chris Osgood? (And won’t goalies of the future be robots that fight with buzzsaws and lasers?)
I just don’t get it.
(Although I suppose I should mention Osgood only gave up one goal against Florida last night. No buzzsaws or lasers were used during the game).
Also, according to Newsday, DiPietro isn’t pissed about being sent down.
I don’t buy it.
