Dehydrated?! sad.gif I know that's not a big deal cause they know what to do to take care of that right away, but being dehydrated is an awful awful feeling.

Hopefully he's okay!

Or he tweaked his knee as the mlive article suggested. Hopefully it's just dehydration. I can't imagine why he'd be dehydrated unless he has the flu or something.


The mlive blog post simply stated that Osgood tweaked his knee in Game 4 of the WCQF's. I didn't perceive any link between the mention of that "injury" and him being taken out of this Game.

QFT, regardless of gender.

And don't wipe if you've used it recently without washing well.

I know, I was simply speculating. I think dehydration is a very strange reason, unless he's been sick. I was watching the game with a group of friends and every one of us thought he hurt a knee on that play. We rewound it and watched it over and over during intermission (since they advertised that they were going to talk about the Pens during intermission). He didn't really do the splits so the knee seemed like a more likely problem than a groin. As I've stated, I hope I'm wrong but with the way he skated directly to trainer at the end of the period made us feel like he tweaked his knee. Babcock said it was precautionary so, hopefully, all of my fears are wrong. Ideally, Datsyuk, Osgood, and Lidstrom are all good to go on Wednesday.

It's not fun being dehydrated, but it's easily dealt with.
Gatorade and bananas work best.

I got severely dehydrated after a bout with the Russian flu many years ago (hoo, boy, NEVER get Russian flu!! Nasty stuff).
I kept passing out, so off to the doctor. He said that if my potassium levels had been a tiny bit lower I'd be dead.
He gave me two options: Drink Gatorade (yuk), or go to the hospital and have an I.V. (I'm scared of needles).
Needless to say I choked down the Gatorade and felt better in a surprisingly short time! Within 48 hours I was craving an Arby's regular. And that's after not eating for several days.

Ozzie will be just fine. cool.gif

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

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

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

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.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

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.

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.

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. biggrin.gif
