Yes it was. DiPietro single-handily willed the Islanders to the playoffs that year. After the ASG, he had three regulation losses--two of them we were shutout against the devils, and the other we were robbed against the Rags when they called off what video later showed was a good-goal. Think about that. He lost ONE game where we scored after the ASG. And even that one should've went to OT.

I think he's done now, as the surgeries have done a number on him. But to suggest that he was only "average" or "okay" that season is ridiculous.
