No offense, but your letting your hatred and bias of the guy getting in the of way of evaluating his game objectively. Your are horrible mistaking if you think the outcome of Montoya or Nabokov would have stopped any of the goals that DP let in. One was a deflection, one was a real good shot by Couture in the slot with a mess of people in front of him, and the other was a uncontested rip by Brent Burns, on a 4 on 3 PP nonetheless. I am a fan of DP, I can admit when he's at fault and when he sucked. It's just sad DP haters like your self can't admit or face that DP wasn't at fault.

For the record, I met DP twice, and both times he was nothing but a nice guy.

Lol @ three pages of "game is over before it begins"

Rick played fine against SJ and looked good in the preseason he was not the reason we lost to SJ.

I think Tavares will get 2 this game, okposo, moulson, and streit. Isles win 5-1

Couldnt agree more with you. Its the contract that turns people off and rightfully so considering his injury history. And its not for lack of trying thats for sure. If anything thats one of his downfalls b/c rushing to back prob cost him more long term. He was one of the few if not only players who wanted to be a Islander for life back in 2006. I felt good to hear at the time, a legitimant home grown NHL player who wanted to play for us and retire an Islander. I'm sure most felt the same way. Boy have times changed though. It was a gamble, and one that hasn't and prob wont ever pay off. Its unfortunate. But I still will root for him and always respect him as I know its not lack of effort.

Back to the game tonight........ LETS GO ISLANDERS!

Ziggy, believe you me, if he was good and leading us to big wins, I'd easily give him a pass. The guy just sickens me with his stubborness of not changing his reckless style and "World Class" ego when he couldn't shine Cam Ward/Jose Theodore's shoes...
Look, I can't blame the contract on him because any of us would have signed that but, you got to believe that if I was dragging my team down with my myriad of issues and lackluster play, I'd see the writing on the wall and get out...

With guys like Montoya, Nabokov, Nilsson, and Poulin all in the system...you're going to have fans picking on Rick. I also want to see the guy succeed...but the goalie that reportedly had the strongest camp and let in 4 goals in 3 games before having one game where he let in 4...hasn't played in 2 weeks.

Now the problem does lie with this awful 3-goalie system...but again, thinking long term...fans see more younger, attractive options (Montoya, Poulin, Nilsson) over the 30-year old netminder with multiple knee/hip surgeries, at least 3 head injuries, and a "yet to be proven" ability to be the Isles starting goalie for the next 10 seasons, carrying this team on his back through stretches and playing 50-60 regular season games a season on those surgically repaired knees and hip.

Back on topic...yes, I think Montoya needs to start now and not have to wait nearly 3 weeks in between starts.

I just have no more faith left in DP.

Bones thanks for the welcome!
Same I missed the glory days and I am jealous every time my parents tell me stories about them from back then.

Islanders should win, just like they should have won the 2 games against Florida.

And before that he let in 2, 1, and 1. Nothing says progress like letting your second best goaltender sit on the bench.

I'm still fuming over that penalty we got in OT against the Sharks).
Welcome to the board ! It's nice to see women share our passion here ! I know so many women Ranger's fans, but never met a woman Islander's fan, except at the games.

He has battled back from every injury, he has had gone through MAJOR SURGERY to come back to battle for this team. NO ONE bleeds more (literally) for this team than Rick.

He is doing more then "try" he is a professional athlete who has made incredible strides in life to play for your team for your entertainment. Gone through major physical theropy, HAS CHANGED HIS STYLE. I have followed Rick since his college days, met him lots of times. He could have called it quits but he keeps battling.

Some of you people have no humility or respect for what it takes to be a professional athlete, or you're just ignorant.

Let's move along from the DP bashing and focus on the game. Those who continue the bashing will be removed from the GDT as to not ruin the experience for others.

Here's my prediction for tonight.... Josh Bailey will have a solid game and register his first point of the season.
Somone else said it but it's a nice oppurtunity for the third line to get on the board. I will say this, the Jets do have some nice defensive forwards and Pavelec has been great lately but still, it's a night to get on the board.

And our schedule sucks. The team needs to play more games, not two 5 day breaks in a matter of three weeks.
I'm fine with DP this game, but I want to see Montoya again, as soon as the next game.

He was the overall #1 pick that our other former "dopey" GM traded to acquire... "Broken" was/is a BUST (see Ryan Leaf/Sam Bowie et al) setting our organization back eons. This is not kindergarten/1st grade where you get "smiley-faces" for trying... I demand a player to perform at their talent level. In the NFL, if you get hurt, you get cut!!! That's the nature of the business... I know the NHL works differently... Smith had it right, Five Year deal for "Broken." He would not be our problem now.... Not saying our "Dis-Organization" would be in better shape but...

Thank you, little sense here... We do have 3 goalies unfortunately, and Rick played well enough to warrant a start this week. Its here or vs the Caps.

I hate these week breaks between games, really makes the fans on here lose it a bit.

LETS GO ISLES!

5-4 Isles win!
