COULD DUBIE BE AN ISLANDER AGAIN?DP done for season? groin strain for Joey Mac

UPDATED 7:55 pm – At 5:01 of the first period, Joey MacDonald left the game with a groin strain and was replaced by Yann Danis. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.

 

*

 

We mostly joked about it happening when Wade Dubielewicz bolted Russia in mid-December, but Greg Logan has just reported that Dubie could be an Islander again in the very near future. GM Garth Snow told Logan that the team has had some talks with the cult favorite’s agent.

 

The bigger story of a Dubielewicz signing would be the cause. Rick DiPietro has had a series of doctors visits the last few days, and we could know this week if he can play again this season or will be shut down.

 

On the MSG Plus pre-game, Snow admitted he was “concerned” about the health of DiPietro but reiterated the organization will continue to have a cautious approach to the goalie’s recovery.

 

Looks like we could have resolution on DiPietro soon. And quite possibly the return of Du-bie, Du-bie.

 

Reaction.

I can give Alex credit for maybe 80% of his homeruns... puts him at about 524. Good, but not quite great... not Willie Mays, not Mickey Mantle, right around Brian Williams.

How many of those home runs were from when he was clean and not taking steroids? I say he needs a redo.

Just go to show u how large the hypocrisy looms amongst the worst fans in the world ... Yankee Fans. Just a few months ago, they wanted that man out of baseball. I'm a Mets fan and I've never given up on him. I know greatness when I see it. Who am I to judge?

He has no business among real men who set the records. Aaron, Ruth and Mays, drug free home run leaders of all time.
