Time to send Ozzie down the retirement road like Maltby. time for you to go, thanks for the memories and mentoring Jimmy. Take draper with you..........

Seriously though, He looks done. The past three seasons he's been awful. Our defense hasn't helped, but he doesn't look like he can steal a game anymore. Time to retire dude.

Yeah, because Jimmy was so stellar against the Avalanche.

The entire team needs to work harder and get back to the level they were last weekend. The Red Wings were going to lose the past two games regardless of the goalie. The defensive coverage is pathetic.

Well if detroit is gonna have a great goalie say goodbye to atleast a top6forward or top4 defenseman... probably more.. because they have a salary of 5-7M

Im with the enforcer on this one. just because we want a solid goalie doesnt mean we need to pay 5-7mil, there will be some out there for reasonable prices soon. If we dont sign anyone else, at least bring one of the kids in to get some experience. Id rather lose because a crappy young goalie, than a crappy old goalie.

And before everyone continues to the bashing, I do agree our D looked horrible the last two games. Stuart played awful last night, s*** happens.
Crosby is a crybaby *****

Wow people relax !Howard is our guy the Wings are just trying to give Ozzie some playing time .Howard did not have a great game against the Avs but he did have a shutout in the opener against th Ducks and he is our go to guy he proved he can play last year, he can and will win and steal games for us.As for Ozzie I agree his best days are behind him and I can't see him stealing games for us but hopefully he can play steady and get some more wins and keep Howard fresh .But he did not get the breaks last night the bounces did not go his way. Give Jimmy 80% of the games ozzie 20% and we will be just fine .

Typical Wings fans, season just started and having our first regulation loss of the year all ready the panic has started. People should realize that no one can actually go 82-0 in an NHL season, goalies / defense / offense tends to have bad games on some night.

Here's a little something for the poster:

Posted Image

Ozzie first game this season and he got a blow out, big deal he will bounce back on his next start. His a veteran, as if that has never ever happened to any other goalie in the league.

I sure hope Ozzie doesn't retire tho after this season, he could be a mentor for Howard as his backup for an extra two more years.

* Past three seasons:

2009-2010 ---> Howard was the starter
2008-2009 ---> Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 (Ozzie was our goalie)
2007-2008 ---> Stanley Cup Champs (Ozzie saved us that year)

The team didnt look good last night, but come on Ozzie cant be letting in 4 goals on 9 shots. Its impossible for a team to get any momentum when that happens. We didnt look good but we did have 30 shots and they had like 16. It seems like the team just has no confidence anymore playing infront of Ozzie. I think its time to go as well

4 goals on 9 shots. Ozzy needs to go so we can have a legitimate backup goalie and our team wont have their confidence shot down when a shaky goalie is in net.

We also don't want to overplay Howard again which I can see happening with Ozzy.

It's impossible for a team to get any momentum when they completely ignore Loui Eriksson standing at the edge of the crease, despite him being within feet of Nick Lidstrom, Brad Stuart, and Henrik Zetterberg.

And if teams can't get momentum when pucks are flying in through screens and off defensemen then they should probably find a new profession because that's what 90% of hockey is.

I think instead of simply looking at a boxscore count and declaring the numbers unacceptable, you need to aim a more critical eye at the events as they unfolded.

I'm starting to think no one watched the game last night. I don't understand how a goaltender is supposed to stop a shot where he is screened and the puck is deflected by his own defender and a goal where the opposing player literally walked to the front of the net unimpeded while 3 Red Wings stood around. Ozzie didn't have a great game last night, but to say he needs to go is completely wacky, especially after 1 game. I'm putting the blame on the defense. They were absolutely horrendous last night.

This is sure going to be a long season on LGW if we are going to see these kinds of threads after every loss. It's 4 games into the season guys. Relax.

If you look at the "blow the team up" topics that are infesting GD, I wouldn't mistake people for thinking rationally right now - boxscore hunters are about, it happens every season. What this more has to do with is Ozzie's always had a love-hate fanbase. People love him when we win and he sucks balls and needs to retire when we lose. Not surprisingly, there's a s*** ton of people who wanna jump off the bandwagon or blow the team up or find someone to hang after the first loss. Isn't there some psychological term for this kind of knee-jerk?
