I believe Hartnell still plays for Philadelphia. I would want him no where near Howard, with the playoffs coming up.


I don't think Hartnell has the effort to play dirty anymore to be honest haha.

High powered?

My thoughts exactly. There's plenty of terms to describe this years' Philadelphia Flyers. High-Powered isn't one of them.

Besides, the Legion of Broom doesn't play for them anymore. :lol:
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I don't think Ozzie starts the playoffs. I think this is the year they try to raise a young buck in Howard, and let him take his licks (unless he has a meltdown like Legace). We need to develop a young goalie and this is it right now. I think the only way Ozzie plays in the playoffs is if Howard melts down.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.

Hopefully the Wings play well with Ozzie in net. I will be at the game and it has been quite some time since Detroit has won in Philly.

Howard has been fantastic, but he needs a breather from the back-to-backs. Get Ozzie in, shake off his rust so he's in form.

Good idea to start Ozzie against Phili. Look at their fight cards: Ozzie vs. Waaaah. Howie vs. Crysby. Who do you think should be in goal? You know- just in case ;)

good about time Ozzy gets some games under him, show the rest of the league that IF Howard falters then Ozzy will be there to have his back.

I think this is a good move. Mustang Howie has done an awesome job this past run and looks like hes wearing down. Dont read to much into this however, the job is now Howards to loose.

IF Howard faulters and falls on his face in the playoffs....( I did Say IF) then Ozzie needs to have gotten in a game or 2 before the reg season ends.. good Idea for Babcock.... Osgood knows we need the points...It will be good for him to get in.

Ozzie will get a shutout, you heard it here first. Richards is gonna take the boys clubbing and get plastered, but they'll soon forget the game starts at noon-thirty. They'll be totally unable to get anything going, except for Carcillo. He just looks like he's immune to alcohol.

Why play him against a highpowered flyers team? They figure their goalie situation is so bad so detroit will score alot of goals and they are in the eastern conference so it doesnt matter as much if they miss out the points?


high powered? wow you obviously dont follow other teams in the nhl..

btw, leino is part of their top line

Well there goes our winning streak.

How do you know? The game hasn't even been played yet.

Anyways, not shocked that this has happened. Howard basically did nothing to suggest he should be taken out for a few games while the Wings were fighting tooth and nail for points and a playoff spot. He's young, so I don't see much signs of wearing out or whatever. And it has very little to do IMO with Osgood and moreso with Howard playing so well. Now that a playoff spot is getting closer to being wrapped up, it's time to "experiment" more or less and give Osgood a few games.

I would've been fine if Babcock continued to ride Howard even more given that he's not worn out and I'm part of the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" camp, but if Osgood was going to play, 1 of these back to back games was probably going to be it.

I want to see Ozzie play four of the five remaining games, winning all in impressive fashion.

I don't care which games they are, but I understand the Howie vs Nashville/Ozzie vs Philly decision.

I would also like to see Chicago lose their next four games, while Detroit wins their next four. This would make the final game of the season for the Central division, Detroit at Chicago on April 11th, the division championship game.

I think this will work out well. I hear Ozzie has been doing better in practice, the Wings are rejuvenated and playing well. Ozzie won't get hung out to dry, and if he has a good game a lot of that rust and shaken confidence can be fixed hopefully.

Could you google and photo-shop slapies take a break? Thanks.
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

This is just to keep Howard from getting injured - nothing more nothing less. Why expose you starting goalie when you don't need to?

Perfect time to play him to be realistic. I mean for god sakes Brian Boucher is in net for the Flyers. What is he their #3 goalie? Should still come away with a win.

I'm not going to doubt Osgood on this one, if he has a bad game, he has a bad game. I'm not going to be too hard him given the fact this is the first time he's going to be playing in a non-practice environment in forever.

Prove all the haters wrong Ozzie!
