After reading Larsson's comment about Osgood being done, I got to wondering about it. I'm pretty certain it will be. I am a known skeptic of Ozzys though, so to me, it wouldn't be a certainty. Ken Holland, on the other hand is quite fond of the Kelly Hrudy look-alike and his numbers do theoretically point to the rafters.
Personally, I wish Shanny would have stuck around till he was done. I think it is at least argueable if not certain that his contributions were more vital to our championships than Osgood's. #14 would look great up there.
Ps...my bad if this has been discussed 10 times already. It was just kind of strange to think of they did, it would probably be opening night next season.
#5 is the only number that should be going up there in the near future.
5 is a no brainer, hes said to be one of the best all time let alone just the wings. 7-time norris winner says it all.
30, i dont think so. I dont believe hes ever won a vezzy, or any other hardware for that matter besides the cups.
Im with mindfly with this one, this aint no pepsi center.
Lids has won 6 Norris trophies, not seven unless you are counting 2010-2011.
Yes I'm serious, he shouldn't be in the rafters nor the HHOF.
I'm with Mindfly (this time only). Here's the Goaltenders in the HHOF. Sorry but Ozzie doesn't fit with these guys.
