Good to see that being an Islanders fan and worshiping DP aren't mutually exclusive across the board. Cheers to you, good sir.
I said almost feel bad for him haha..

Ricks days as a #1 goalie are over. Ricks days as an NHL goalie may very well be over. Everyone can see it except for Rick & Wang. It would be a shame if he took even 1 game away from those kids.

I don't even think Snow is in his corner. He's towing the company line, and maybe he isn't even giving Wang the advice he needs to hear because he knows how Charles feels about him. But I can't believe that a former goalie himself would think Rick has anything left.

The alumni games will be epic though with Garth at one end & Rick at the other.
I 100% agree here.. At this point it's like he's above the uniform and more important than the team. If Rick some how comes out and gets shut outs in his next couple outings and stays healthy while giving the team solid effort I'll take it all back but as of now he's a number 3 goalie in my opinion.
