Why does osgood say:
"“We got a good team. Jimmy realizes that. He doesn’t have to steal games a lot of times like he did last year"

Why not aim to steal games every game you play? He realize he can let in a softie or two because wings will come out and score more goals.. is that really a sound way to think?

I don't really think that's what he meant. I think Jimmy had a lot of pressure on him last year because we were so injured that every goal against us hurt. This year we are healthy and scoring more, so on the chance that a soft goal does happen, it's not the end of the world.

Mindfly,
What he is getting at is that Jimmy can be more relaxed in net and not press so hard to win.

The team can pick the win up, sure he will have to steal a game or two, but if he is playing every game like he (Howie) has to be the best player on the ice he puts a lot of pressure on himself.

Most goaltenders are better when they are relaxed, just like sometimes it seems like a player is gripping his stick to tight. He needs to relax a little more.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Sounds good... Jimmy needs a break soon

I kind of wish we'd start Osgood against Anaheim on Friday, and Howie against LA.

Oh well. Hope for the Back2Back win, but I think LA is going to beat us. No reason really. Osgood is probably going to be a bit rusty, we'll be a bit exhausted from the night before (Anaheim loves goonery). LA has sucked lately though. Lost 4 straight, after being one of the best teams for the first part of the season. Their offense has sucked, which I imagine is why they're playing Osgood against them. Best way to come back after an injury is to play a team that can't score.

LA has been good at Home though, 8-2 I think.

*Shrug* Ozzie is a pro. He'll figure it out :)

I hate losing to the Kings. I like that team, but their fans are among the worst. I went to a game in LA once, wearing my Redwings Jersey. Had people throw cigarettes at me, someone tossed a full beer at me, and Security had to escort me to, in, and from the smoking area :-p This was years ago, but I imagine the fans still suck.

As much as I want Jimmy to play every night, Ozzie's gotta get in there in now and then. If Jimmy somehow got hurt? We would would be in trouble me thinks...
