DiPietro still can't get in a game

Rick DiPietro denied a report by a German newspaper that he was injured in a text to the Post's Brett Cyrgalis.  http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/islanders/dipietro_not_hurt_in_germany_PSm4PD74691zCABKewZLfN

Perhaps it is time for the follow-up question: why are you not playing?

DiPietro has now not appeared in a game in over a month...including Friday's 5-4 SC Riesersee win over Bietigheim.  Bietigheim is the team Josh Bailey joined and Bailey had a goal and two assists in the game, giving him 5 points in his first two games in Germany.
