You can get dehydrated from drinking too much alcohol. :ph34r:

Just sayin'.......... :yowza:

Because alcohol is a diuretic... Some hospitals have alcohol or liquor for certain situations.

No, you're not just sayin'. WHY are you deliberately bringing back this bulls***? Ozzie's not doin' enough for you? Do yourself and all of us a favor and move on from that crap.

Bad dehydration can also cause cramping issues that are bad enough that you could still be feeling the pain 48 hours later.

Hey, I love Ozzie as much as the next fan.

I was just trying to be funny.

Sorry to offend.

It's only recently that I've started to see goaltenders get pulled for "Dehydration" :-p

Babcock said he would never pull Ozzie just to give him a rest, but I have to wonder. It's not like Ozzie was out drinking all night (Well I would hope not heh). As a professional athlete these guys know how important pre-hydration is for a hockey game I think first off that any hockey player is going to become somewhat dehydrated during the course of the game.

So to me "Dehydrated" basically means "Rest". I'm sure he was dehydrated. I'm sure any goalie in the playoffs gets somewhat dehydrated. But if we weren't up by so much, million dollars says Ozzie wouldn't have been pulled.

Though I'm glad he got out of there. He was having a great game, and a full period of extra rest couldn't hurt, especially with the Hawks being chippy.

I'm assuming "He was dehydrated" is a euphemism for "We were being careful."

yeah, i think you're right

I'm thinkin' Flu.

Nick too.

That would explain the rapid onset of both cases.

I figured Babcock was just like "Lol, try my backup."

Nice! Haha.

Boy, Conks looked RUSSSSSTY. Understandably so.

You know, I honestly thought that putting Conklin in was for two reasons:

1. Just to give him some playing time in the Playoffs...blow some dust off. The lead was huge and the Blackhawks quit playing already.

2. To further demoralize the Hawks. Its like saying "hey, we already won the game....might as well just put in our backup goalie!". I have to wonder....

There may be an underlying issue with Osgood behind all of the semantics, but there's no doubt that given the rowdy nature of the Blackhawks and the fact that their coach had no control of them, Babcock made the right move to sit Osgood in order to preserve his energy and his physical health. There's no doubt in my mind that someone (Probably Buttfuglyien) was going to take a run at him in the third.

I think perhaps Babcock had just learned an important lesson... he watched us tear apart the Hawks rusty backup (Huet) who had not played in over a month. Why not give our backup a meaningless period incase Ozzy goes down for whatever reason? Shake the rust off Conklin, tell the press Ozzy was dehydrated. :D

Babs was asked at the press conference if he had pulled Ozzie to rest him. Babs laughed and said, "no, I'd never do that". Then he explained about the dehydration.

This could mean:

a) I didn't rest him; he was dehydrated.

b) I didn't rest him; I spared him from the chance that things could get ugly and he was dehydrated.

c) I didn't rest him; I wanted Conks to get some time in case we need him later and he was dehydrated.

d) I didn't rest him; I wanted to mess with Q/demoralize the Hawks and he was dehydrated.

e) all of the above.

The other thing I noticed from this and a previous presser was that Babs mispronounces Byfuglien. Intentional? Or is he a grad of Hooked on Phonics?

According to an interview you can pronounce his name two different ways, babs used the rare one... the common one is of course "bufflin"

Ozzie said he was thirsty. Babcock said go to the drinking fountain...take your time...
