Newsday: Mr Logan in his game recap writes Rick DiPietro's turnover was " bone-headed " but did not go in the same direction with Freddy Meyer or other players made critical mistakes.
Head coach Scott Gordon could not talk about DiPietro's health citing the clubs injury policy only saying the goaltender was not pulled for his play. Doug Weight talked about his missed penalty shot and the terrible ice conditions while Rick DiPietro preferred not to talk about his injury until more is known and felt it's been too much of a distraction.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Hard-Headed last March, now Bone-Headed a week after returning?
Greg Logan obviously does not like DiPietro for reasons that go beyond the ice, this comes off as unprofessional combined with another statement about club policy.
If Mr Logan is going to write this about DiPietro he has to write the same thing about Meyer, Nielsen or Hillen for poor decisions, he went out of his way to point out crowd reaction when DiPietro did not return.
Scott Gordon seems to put distance between himself and club policy when he says this is what he is stuck with, not a good sign he is on board with management.
DiPietro was not carried off the ice and seemed ok on the bench, we'll see what happens from here regarding how much time he misses of if a goalie is recalled.
Newsday: Greg Logan's other article seemed pre-written with Mike Comrie's comments about the young players scoring struggles and what it takes to break out, gain confidence and win some home games. Scott Gordon talks about Tambellini and Nieslen having to be better but are getting this kind of opportunity for the first time.
