There would have been absolutely no justification for starting Osgood against Edmonton. He was absolutely brutal for most of that season and Legace had lost twice in regulation in his last 24 heading into the playoffs, and had won 8 straight giving up 15 goals total.

It didn't work out with Legace in net, but we can put that one on the list of Epic Failures like SJ 94 and LA 01....

14 Cups in 14 seasons if we just would've kept Osgood and started him every year, I tell ya!

Why single out those years... how about every other year out side of 97,98, 02 as epic failures... I know i was alive for lot more epic failures than just those two choice years (weren't you???)....oh because ozzie was involved thats right rolleyes.gif

Now you're just being stupid Pack. Osgood won 3 games in the 94 playoffs, and lost 2. Bob Essensa's inability to stop the puck in his two starts was the reason Detroit didn't win that series. As far as 2001...Osgood was the best player in that series. Legace was the worst player on the Wings in 2006...so that is a completely different situation.

The Dominator, but Osgood just as reliable. Doesn't Hasek have the playoff bonus in his contract?

I'd throw Jimmy in before Hasek. Even if Ozzie and Hasek are equal in shot-blocking capability (which they're not), you can bank on Dom giving up at least one goal due to a) playing the puck outside the trapezoid, b) trying to draw an interference call by giving his best impression of the Bill Laimbeer flop or c) by deciding to chuck his stick to the corner and getting beat five-hole.

I'm leaning more toward Ozzie....he's been great this year. Although not opposed to seeing who's doing better at the start of the playoffs....switch them when needed.

thank you TeeMan

To Everyone:

lets put it all into thought, i think both will be played during the playoffs. the end will show whos better, blah, blah blah, realy its a waste of time and energy to argue that ozzie or dom is going to start, really does it matter as long as we have one of the two doing well? tis true Detroit Fans are hard on their goalies, but stuff like this can get down right annoying.

if anyone knows the definition of team work please post it up.. oh wait, i have it here..

Team work: (webster dictionary) : work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole


this is the most important part, not about who has the best resume.. because really your going on resumes it seems, who has the most cups, or who the coach says is most efficient.. true enough id like to see dom in there, but i also know, it has to be for the better of the team. so ill go with whatever babcock decides because i am sure a coach would know his own team better than i would.

**May the best goaltender be in net**

You saw last night how good this team can make any goalie when they show up. They did for Ozzie, so I would say the signs are pretty clear... even if he loses one, I would leave him. The team will know it wasn't Ozzie who was at fault, and will play better for him next time.

Little harsh treatment for one of the keys to the 2002 Cup team and the great run last season don't you think?! Dom had a rough couple of games and owned up to it. Ozzie came in and played solid. The simple fact is we have two Stanley Cup winning goalies to choose from, how good is that? The bigger question, what will we do next year in goal???

OF course... keep league leading Ozzie and bring up Howie to back up... problem solved with little to know money paid out above and beyond.

ohhh the joys of keeping the same goalie for more than a season. God i know its a new concept for Detroit, but we should at least give it a whirl!

Hopefully this won't happen, but, after how many loses should Hasek play? 1 or 2?

After two consecutive losses that can be largely attributed to lack of focus on Osgood's part.

Unlikey to happen (losses or goalie switch) since the team is defensively tighter and contributing to the offense in the last 6 games. Since it's not necessary (or correct) to change goalies, you probably won't see Hasek again.

That appears to suit the majority here, and in the media/NHL. I wouldn't worry about it too much, CB.

I would say a 7-0 record, 1.45 gaa and a .939 sv% would suit the majority.

Eva, you might know, has any goalie had a perfect record in the playoffs?

Dallas, I'm disappointed in you. As a Wings fan you should know that in the 1952 playoffs, Detroit as a team went 8-0 in the postseason, with Terry Sawchuk in net for all games. Sawchuk allowed a mere 5 goals in 480 minutes of play, posting a then-record 4 shutouts, a record that stood for nearly 50 years.
1952 is important because...?
