“It wasn’t just having games, but organized practices,” DiPietro said. “I think, mentally, that was more important than anything. Physically… I feel great. I’ve had such extensive surgeries, they say it takes a couple of years after that serious of surgery to actually feel back to yourself. I think a lot of the stuff was me rushing back too soon, or just having other stuff go wrong because you compensate for surgery that really hadn’t quite yet come back all the way. I’ve had some time off to get ready and get prepared, and I’m looking forward to it.”
....is there really any positive spin to be placed on this?

If the Isles go with DP as a backup, it's basically an unspoken missive that they don't intend on taking advantage of a short season any further than prioritizing DP's sixth attempt at coming back over a playoff push in my opinion.

Maybe it's just me, but I've heard the "I feel great" talk three times too many to have a great deal of faith in it.
