I think the point that a lot of people are missing is that we shouldn't be sacrificing games as a result of DP's poor play and chalking it up to him "shaking off rust" and "getting back in his groove." You can't blame him for looking a little shaky with how few games he's played in the past handful of seasons. However, it's frustrating to see his exercise in getting back to his old self hurting the team and costing us games.

Sure, he had a great game against Tampa Bay. He had a bad game against Florida. Consistency is an attribute of good players and until he has that back, he shouldn't be the number one goaltender.

There's a place where Islanders go to shake off rust and get back in their groove. That place is called Bridgeport. Send him down and give him his starts. When he's back to form, bring him up and give him some starts to see if he's really ready or not.

Roloson has proved that he is more than able to be the number one goaltender for this team. Why he isn't is beyond me.
