I like this statement. Ozzie was an unknown before he won the cup. Now it seems like a lot of Ozzie supporters use the fact that he's won it once before as the base of their arguement. Manny will be an unknown too, until he wins the cup. It's time to give him that chance.
No, Ozzie supporters use the fact that he HAS won to debunk claims that he CAN'T win.
Osgood was also not an unknown before he won it...Osgood was a three-time All-Star with 132 wins and 20 shutouts. He also had a Second Team selection that should have been a First Team, as well as being runner-up up for the Vezina (should have won it)
He had also led the league in wins and GAA.
Osgood was SIGNIFICANTLY more accomplished in 98 than Legace is now.
Hell, after 95-96 Osgood had done more in his career than Legace has done with another ten years.

| Ok, that game can be played both ways|
All Redwings goalies that have the CONSISTANCY(sp?) to start in the playoffs, please step forward...
Wait Osgood, How many soft goals have you allowed in the playoffs?
I can count quite a few, in fact more than most goaltenders out there
You CANNOT let in a goal from the blueline in a PLAYOFF game.
You SHOULD NOT be 10 feet out of your crease as you watch the puck go in.
Osgood's shaky history in the playoffs should make him just as much as a question mark in goal as Manny is, just because Manny has never really had the chance to prove himself
What makes anyone on here think that Manny cant do it?
When has he ever played as inconsistant as Osgood?
Please, let me know
So Manny's lack of a track record is an asset?
You do know that Manny and Ozzy are the same age, don't you?
When Osgood was playing his first playoff games in 1994, Manny had just made the jump to the AHL.
When Osgood won the Stanley Cup as the starting goaltender in 1998, Manny made the big jump to the IHL.
So you're saying Osgood is worse because he let in some shaky goals in an NHL playoff games years ago, and Manny's better because he hasn't, though it's because he was busy tending goal in the AHL and IHL?
Osgood has played consistent enough to start the playoffs. (remember the aforementioned Stanley Cup he won?)
I'm sure you can count more than a few softies Osgood has let it, and they were heartbreakers. how long ago was that? How many other goalies have you watched play as many games?
Osgood's "shaky history" is a couple isolated moments from years ago. When's the last time you've watched him in the playoffs?
I never said Manny can't do it. But Manny played inconsistent in his last game, though because it was Manny, none of the goals were his fault. If it were Ozzy in net, people would be saying he should've stopped all those goals.
And for the record, and for the millionth time, I don't think Manny is bad or Osgood is great. But if Ozzy plays well this season, he's the guy I would want in net in the playoffs.
And for the millionth time, I just think it's odd how much credit Manny gets for doing very little, and how little credit Ozzy gets for winning the Cup.
It's not worth arguing anymore, because you're too biased towards Legace to objectively rate their performances.

Why not play Legace in the playoffs if he is doing better than Osgood???
Just because Osgod has a resume doesnt mean that he plays like that every year
We have all seen that he is less than consistant
Detroit needs consistancy in net, and I think the vast majority of this board feels that Legace can and will give consistancy
Just playin Chris, you know I love you!

|I'm betting Osgood would get out voted by Howard at this point. But what do I know. I voted for.................|
That's not even a contest. Logan Koopmans would probably give Osgood a run for his money on these boards.
