    Apparently there's some emergency mystery backup in the building that can play for either team, but only if their last goalie is injured. So they can't pull DiPietro.

    Not cool. Everyone knew that DiPietro isn't NHL ready yet, he's more raw than uncooked chicken. Pretty brutal that Benning's incompetence, fed the 19 y/o rookie to the wolves in this one. Hopefully Dipietro's confidence isn't shattered, and comes back in the future stronger than ever. He now know's what it's like to play in the NHL for the future, and what it's like to play behind a putrid defensive, such as Vancouver's.

    Shame on you Benning for this one.

    Poor kid, hopefully he gets over it quick. He is only 19.

    Still amazed that Dan Blackburn played 31 games as an 18-year-old and another 32 the next season.

    Inexcusable what they’ve allowed to happen here.

    I don't think 6-1 is that big of a deal. But if they can't pull him and it ends up like 11-1 lol. Either way it's much more embarrassing for the organization than him.

    I feel bad for the kid, but in the long run, it will probably help him to be a better goalie.

    I think that you don't realize how good NHLers are until you play them.

    Now he knows and it will probably push him to work harder if he wants to play in this league again.

    No, it’s that Bachman is also hurt. They have Michael Leighton on a tryout contract and ECHL callup Kulbakov down in Utica. Neither are on NHL contracts, so they can’t be called up. No idea why Benning hasn’t signed an AHL goalie to call up, though. He’s had a lot of time to find a solution since McKenna got claimed.

    Doug Wilson's plan to claim McKenna worked perfectly

    Dipietro starting is proof that Benning is incompetent

    Weird that not all fans see this

    Vancouvers goaltending depth must be pretty bad when a really raw 19 year old CHL goalie has to start a game. It's not even like some of those injuries are really that uncommon.

    Jones was really surprised that he was put in straight from junior. Said he had some tough breaks and was put in a tough spot.

    Kid did as well as could be expected. Sharks have been making veteran goalies look like this since the asg.
