I think Osgood will technically be #1, but I would love to see them alternate.

I don't think Osgood came back to be a backup... Plus it is true that Legace can't take starter minutes..... 30 games max for him

I think legace will start. I think they got osgood so that legace would know that there is someone ready to take his place if he falters.

I think they'll share it, Minnesota-style. Pretty much go every other game, and ride a hot goalie when you've got one. I'd be surprised if either of them played over 52 games, or less than 32. Again, the hot goalie will play in the playoffs.

I voted for Manny.
(Kind of a bummer we have these 2 to choose from.)

I'd just like to once again thank Bettman for coming up with a system that forces successfully run, winning, 100 yr old teams to rebuild in 60 days! crazy.gif

While the shoddy, neglected, unpopular, poorly managed, short-term teams just sit back and whip out a stack of contracts and the checkbook and drink a glass of "Insta-Contender".

That goes without saying, Osgoode. But what makes it so great is that we have Legace as backup. That's the only reason we can afford to risk Osgoode as #1.

Of course all I just said there also goes without saying.

Agreed. Just there needs to be a clear #1 going into the playoffs.

Give me a break! Manny who? Osgood is our #1. What is the point of this poll? There isn't even a question. What are you 4 people who picked Manny on? Or are you just not Wings fans?

It's not like they're pissed at each other or anything. This isn't Dom "Overfiend of the Superego" Hasek and Joseph. They'll just be competing for the number one is all. They've done it before, so no big deal.

Manny will play most of his game (about 25-30) before the all-star break. And Ozzy will begin to see the lions share more and more down the stretch.

Ozzie. He didn't come back to sit on the bench.

It won't be the kind of lopsided number like 00-01 though

Before midseason, they had each played about half.

After midseason, Legace played 5 games and Osgood played the rest. Wings had February undefeated that year remember? First month in club history..I think Ozzie played all but one of the games.

I think its mannys job to lose. I believe the only concern on the wings part is whether he can go the distance and play consistently for so many games which is something he is not used to so they'll have osgood ready to jump in. Put me down for Legace to start and hopefully he is allowed to prove himself if he faulters which wasn't the case in 04 filling in for joseph when he got yanked for one bad game which doesn't really send the right message to a goalie not used to playing more than 1 or 2 games in a row in which for which he did exceptionally well in my opinion.
