DiPietro Itching To Get Back On The Ice

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

In spite of his problems staying on the ice, DiPietro doesn’t intend to change his playing style when he does return.

“I don’t think I will ever let that affect the way I play,” DiPietro said. “That might be part of the problem.”

He said that with somewhat of a rueful laugh, knowing his injury woes have kept the Isles wallowing near the bottom of the league, despite their recent success. He insists that won’t be for long and that they won’t end up regretting his epic contract.

“I’ve had a lot of bad luck, which [stinks],” DiPietro said. “But in the long run, it’s going to work out. There’s absolutely no question that my goal since signing that deal was to win here, and everyone here wants to win the Stanley Cup. I think we’re taking the right steps.”
