|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.|
why would it be manny's job to lose?
Osgood has won 200+ games as a Wing, 300+ overall. He's got career stats that compare favorably to Hall of Famers and just came off one of his statistically better years on one of the worst teams in the NHL. He is the second best goalie in Wings history. He was scouted heavily by then-scout, now-GM Ken Holland since the age of 16 an became a family friend because they lived in the same city.
Legace has never been a starter, but has shown the ability. He has not shown he has the stamina.
Holland has said neither has the job locked up.
If it's any goalie's job to lose, it's Osgood's.
