Cujo. 'Tis too bad he got treated like a pile of s*** during his stint here.

It's a Festivus miracle!!!

Osgood for favorite. Has been since he came into the league. Yes, I know that makes me a homer.

Ozzie has always been my favorite, he's proven clutch throughout his career and even his failings have done more to endear him to me and I think its true with a lot of fans. There are the goaltenders who are just plain sick good, and then there are the rare players who aren't perfect but they make you want to pull for them. I think this is rarest with goaltenders because when they aren't perfect, they draw the wrath of the fan heavily. Ozzie grew up with the Wings and we as fans have gotten to see so many highs and a few lows.

I also forgot to mention Trevor Kidd... When he was in Calgary with his flame pads and his electrifying glove saves... SO SICK.

So true.

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

Ryan Miller, because he is talented enough to tell some pretty good "Your Mama" jokes and also tell them in a foreign language.

Ozzy's been my favorite almost my entire life. I met him and got a few things signed when I was 8 after the first cup win. It was amazing seeing another cup win by my favorite goalie more than 10 years later. smile.gif

Wow this is tough...I would have to think my favorite goalie all time is my goalie on my beer league hockey team. The guy shows up drunk..drinks 2-3 vodka coolers in the dressng room before the game...he doesn't warm up..he just stands off to the side and watches us shoot pucks into the empty net. He lets in 6 goals in 2 periods, takes 3 slashing penalties and then proceeds to smoke 3 cigs and drink 2-3 vodka coolers in between periods. He then lets in another 4 goals in the 3rd..we lose by 8 and then he goes back to the dressing room drinks another 6 beer and heads home for the night. I love his professionalism..end of story.

I'll give you one guess. wink.gif

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Osgood/Joseph. Honorable mention to Felix the Cat just because he was the s*** for the St John's Maple Leafs, and I loved him when I was a kid.

I actually thought CuJo was fantastic in Detroit. He did not deserve the treatment he got. Having a team that wasn't scoring and a few soft untimely goals made it look worse. Plus wasn't that during the Dave Lewis reign? Man I hated Dave Lewis as a Coach! Poor Cujo, if ever a player I wanted to come to Detroit and win a cup he would have been one of the top for me! CuJo was and is a star!

Actually, I thought he wasn't that bad...but he was worse than when he was with the leafs (and I actually wanted to see win a cup) and yes, Dave Lewis SUCKED
