Ok here goes...

That is where I differ with your perspective. Can you explain what "excessively complaining" is? I certainly think DiPietro's (or any player's) performance is something that is game related - especially when some here think that playing Roloson more often might be in the best interest of the team.

Why shouldn't this subject be something that dominates this board's conversation? At least until DP can make a case for himself either way? It's part of what makes reading posts here interesting and fun to read. If DP kicks butt and has a .933 SP and a great GAA it will just go away!

By the way...not that stats mean everything but look here:

DP
GAA 3.31 SP .882

Roloson
GAA 1.65 SP .942

I do think the stats do reflect the difference in quality of both of their games at this point.
