This makes no sense to me, none. If DiPietro or Hunter said he is
done playing in the AHL, that's another matter.
Regarding Milbury's comments, Justin Papineau is older than Trent
Hunter. One is playing for the Tigers, the other is so desperate to
find work he is about to sign in Switzerland. Is this how they
protect a player who finished third for the calder who badly needs to
work under the Islanders staff?
Meanwhile the Tigers have not scored in ten peirods. How is this
helping Hunter or Bridgeport.
Maybe I am not reading this properly or there is a chance someone
could claim these players on waivers, I'm not sure.
But after reading what I read today in Newsday made me feel Mike
Milbury does not want Trent Hunter or Rick DiPietro in Bridgeport for
reasons that make absolutely no sense. Meanwhile Raffi Torres and
several NHL players are helping AHL teams and getting the work they
need to develop.
