Newsday: Greg Logan has goaltender Joey MacDonald's comments about the return of Rick DiPietro to practice on Monday and what's ahead. Mr Logan speculates as to when DiPietro could start a game.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Would not be the worst time for Garth Snow to think about rewarding MacDonald with a contract extension.

Without MacDonald from opening night this team is looking at fifteen games under five hundred right now, he's proven he can step in and play well for not only an extended amount of time but as a number one goalie.

Only potential downside here is he seems critical of his team defense when they struggle but he also was very hard on himself and praised Yann Danis/DiPietro.

Islanders record does reflect how well he has played for them, being named third start of the month for November does along with all the quality shots he has faced and saved.

This is along the same lines of what folks saw a year ago with Robin Figren with the Oil Kings.
