I am not expecting him to turn it around and come back at Patrick Roy but he wouldn't be the first athlete in professional sports to make a come back after playing abroad for a while.
I am not sure how the AHL compares to the league in Germany, but I view this stint in Germany as the AHL rehab assignment that he should have been on from the beginning. Hopefully this will give DP the chance to work back up to NHL level game shape. I don't think the Islanders did DP a favor by throwing him into the deep end of the pool (NHL).
