Seeing the bust he turned into proves he was a 2nd rounder at best.
I agree, he earned a trip to the show but not the number one job, however, Management just handed it to him. Management also always gave him back the number 1 job back whenever he came back form injury.
For God's sake, they dealt away Chris Osgood to give DiPietro the number one job.
Oh and for what it's worth, while he did make the Calder Cup finals, he lost. In fact, he's never won a championship of any kind in his career, not in the pro's, not in the minors, not in college, not in the olympics, not in juniors. Nothing, nada, zip. He holds the NCAA record for most saves in a game, a game he lost. His resume proudly shows one Beanpot tourney win. That's it.
Has been and always will be a loser.
Honest question: Do you not remember history, or do you just make things up?
Chris Osgood was traded not for DiPietro to become the starter, but rather because he was playing TERRIBLE & GMG was having a career year. Rick became the start partway through the next season (03-04) since Garth fell off terribly as well.
