If you missed it, earlier this afternoon it was announced that Islanders oft injured goalie Rick Dipietro would need to go undergo surgery for a sports hernia and will likely miss the rest of the season. This is after hes been on IR for nearly around a month or so.
You really cant make this stuff up! Hes like the only guy who would suffer a season ending injury while on IR.
To top it off, he told newsday that he has no plans to retire. Saying that its never crossed his mind.
I know he wants to play, and I respect that! But when is enough, enough now? I think it'd be best for both sides if he just retired!
