Seriously, wow. He got hit in the head during practice and there's no estimate on a return date.

How's that 15 year contract looking again?

I guess Nabokov figured he'd play this year since he'd get the starting gig eventually.

Wow. Some goalies do that on purpose, and it doesn't bother them. :P

Out of 246 games he's only played 39 of them? My GOD...

Someone needs to grow some balls and get rid of him.

The sad thing is that he's actually immensely talented and capable of being a top goalie in the NHL. It's a damn shame he's built out of glass.

Dipietro, Tim Connolly, and Andy Mcdonald-how many poolies have had their lives ruined by these 3?

Guess the league needs to look at these types of dangerous headshots as well. :ph34r:

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I hate the term injury prone, but DiPietro is as close to that definition of anyone in any sport. I want him to at least have one full good season, he's a good goalie.

Have to wonder if the Isles don't just buy his contract out at some point & move on.

It's the curse of the Wang.


Seriously, I feel bad for the guy. He could be a good goaltender if he could ever stay healthy. Gee, I wonder why the Islanders wanted Nabby?

Come now, there are glasses that can be used as hammers. No way is glass as fragile as DiPietro.

If the Isles would have made a more reasonable in years, like, a third or fourth of that they gave DiPietro, they'd be in a better position to get a more steadfast goalie. Watching a couple games so far, their scoring and D look promising.

It would make a lot of sense, but then they'd be paying for him into the 2030's. Personally I'd just bury him in the minors. I know that's perceived as bad for future signings, but this is a little bit different story. Either that or "loan" him to some third rate league in a former Soviet country, they'll take him just because he appeared in NHL games.

Perhaps it's time to consider another line of work.

Yeah, he absolutely needs to retire. The guy is never going to play anything close to a complete season.

Honestly, DiPietro should be the bigger man and retire. It's the least he could do for them since they hung onto him this long.
