DiPaolo was under utilized in my opinion. This kid has been extra patient with the Sting as he sat from the sidelines and watched the majority of the game. When he plays, he plays well. He needs to be in the lineup.

I think if his last name was anything other than "Ciccarelli" then he wouldn't have seen any action this year. It was probably a convenience thing bringing him up when injuries struck but I would agree, I don't think he is ready for the OHL, yet.

I think they have to entertain the idea of moving Basso. They can risk putting the hands of the offense into DeAngelo's hands and hope they can improve their scoring depth up front by moving Basso....or, move him for a '94.
