After playing last night, I wouldn't mind seeing the Isles be competitive this game and just get it to overtime.
I know in a short season points are crucial at every juncture (like they arent in a regular season lol) but realistically speaking, if we can get out of this game with a point against a top notch team, I'll take it!
Sorry but it's really not. That equates to 14 games a season. If you honestly believe that Rick DiPietro is the reason the Islanders haven't made the playoffs since 2006-2007 then that's thee most absurd thing I ever heard.
I said that he negatively affects the team and you took that as me claiming that he is the reason the Islanders haven't made the playoffs? I think you can stop right there in your quest for the most absurd thing you've ever heard.
I said he would have a negative WAR if something like that existed for hockey. The stats prove it.
