I don't understand why Osgood isn't getting more starts. Right now there is little difference between Howard and Ozzie, except maybe Ozzie is playing a little better. Everyone, including Babcock has wanted to get him going for two years now, and here's the best chance the team will get. Ozzie needs to play more consistently to be of any value down the road.

It's pretty weak to have two goalies with under .910 save percentage, both goalies are pretty bad so not worth arguing who should start.

If the other team gets 30 shots on goal they will have 3goals on that, and many teams will get 30 or more shots against detroit, and you can't expect the offense to put up 4goals+ every game, even though they managed that in plenty of recent games.

Save percentage is an AVERAGE. Osgood has not played enough games to even have a statistically meaningful save % and the Wings average less than 30 SA/G.

You should stick to just predicting a loss every game instead of trying to justify it with statistics that you don't understand.

SV% is everything when looking on who's the best GOALIE, everything else is more or less a team statistic.

Because Howard is in a little slump and he is the future goalie of the organization. Ozzie wont be our guy going into playoffs and likely wont even be on the team next year. I don't know why so many people think he should start as much as Howard.



I'll be at this game, looking forward to seeing Tatar and Mursak live in action. I hope the wings win.

Hudler/Filppula(if you have to)+Kindl+Pick for Carey Price, and you wouldn't have to worry about the goaltending situation for over a decade, the kid is only 23 years old.

How is SV% not a team statistic as well? Every shot that a goalie faces is impacted by the rest of his team somehow -- an unscreened wrister from along the boards is a lot different than a breakaway.

As ever, the only way to truly know anything about a player is to watch the games and see for yourself.
"We've been in the same spot all year long. We won 50 games for the fourth year in a row. People think we're just hum-drum and boring.
No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

I can't speak for others, but I would like to see Ozzie have a few more starts because A) Howard needs a bit of rest now and again so he will be fresher for the playoffs and B) if, God forbid, anything happens to Howie, we need Ozzie to be rust-free.

Price is not even top 10 in any stat other than Wins, not to mention he lets in weaker goals than any other goalie in existence.

At first I wondered why we had a half GDT, but then I figured it out.

Go Wings.

Heading to the game tomorrow. Sitting in the Holiday Inn Express that's a mile away right now :)

May get a late lunch before the game, any suggestions?

Looking forward to a great game!

Not sure if anyone else agrees, but when i went to the Joe last week for the Canucks game, we went to the Vue...a small place in Cobo hall. Great view of the water and they have a "burger and a beer" deal for 6.95. They are open before and after the game. The Chicken club was great and the location is really convenient. Just a thought! :)
Raising another Red Wings Fan!

The future looks bright in Hockeytown!

This could be an interesting game because of a so-called weaker Eastern conference hot team playing a hot Western conference team. I DO wish all the players were healthy on both sides to see a true matchup.

I also think Ozzie should be getting more starts. He played so well in his last outing which tells me the little punk rocker is on a roll right now.

"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.
