So with Mursak being recalled that means Ozzie will be on the bench tonight... correct?

I thought I read that with out MacDonald being sent back down that we couldn't recall anybody?

Yes I think you're right! :D Maybe we'll see Ozzie in net for the next game.

I would too, but why not win them both?

As CallToArms stated, it's a curse anyway. It's nice to say you finished on top with points, but the doesn't mean anything if you don't make it to the finals. And I'm not saying we won't, but to be if you're booted out of the playoffs in the first or second round, your ranking during the regular season doesn't really mean much...except for record keepers.

Thanks Offsides

Eh well. I don't believe in curses or jinxes. But that's just me. Plus we'd have to get hot if we want to take the trophy right? So isn't now the time to get hot anyway?

Junior goalie gets unexpected call-up to Red Wings


Ontario Hockey League goalie Troy Passingham was hanging out with his girlfriend Monday when he received the call that every junior goalie would love to get: The Detroit Red Wings wanted him.

With Joey McDonald down in the minors and Chris Osgood possibly unavailable, the Red Wings brought in Passingham on a 24-hour tryout contract to possibly be Jimmy Howard's emergency backup Wednesday for a game against the Vancouver Canucks.

At the morning skate, Passingham said he didn't even know how much money he will receive, although that seemed to be the least of his concerns.
"My mindset will be to be prepared, and hopefully I will just watch, but you never know," said Passingham, who was an overage junior goalie for the Sarnia (Ontario) Sting who didn't make the playoffs.

Early in the afternoon, the Red Wings still weren't sure of Osgood's status. He has been recovering from surgery. The Red Wings sent down McDonald when they recalled Jan Mursak. Tight against the salary cap, the Red Wings ey have short-term injuries/illnesses with Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen and Jiri Hudler. Coach Mike Babcock will make a decision on Hudler after the pre-game skate.

Passingham hopes to be signed by a pro team, but if he doesn't receive any offers, he plans to play Canadian college hockey. "Still chasing the dream," he said.


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

The president's trophy is a curse, they Canucks can have it :) I'd rather see our boys lift the only trophy that matters :thumbup:


I have always thought the P trophy was a curse too so I did some digging and found this Great article analyzing Presidents Trophy winners and playoff performance and it suggests that finishing 1st overall in the regular season isn't quite the playoff curse we all tend to believe. I think the reality is just that we all tend to remember train wrecks by top teams than we do their deep runs.


Lost in first round: FIVE (25 percent) -- 1991 Chicago Blackhawks, 2000 St. Louis Blues, 2004 Detroit Red wings, 2009 San Jose Sharks, 2010 Washington Capitals

Lost in second round: THREE (15 percent) 1992 New York Rangers, 1993 Pittsburgh Penguins, 2006 Detroit Red Wings

Lost in third round: FIVE (25 percent) 1996 Detroit Red Wings, 1997 Colorado Avalanche, 1998 Dallas Stars, 2003 Ottawa Senators, 2007 Buffalo Sabres

Lost in Stanley Cup Final: TWO (10 percent) 1990 Boston Bruins, 1995 Detroit Red Wings

Won Stanley Cup: FIVE (25 percent) 1994 New York Rangers, 1999 Dallas Stars, 2001 Colorado Avalanche, 2002 Detroit Red Wings, 2008 Detroit Red Wings

Hopefully Howard can bounce back tonight but I think it was REALLY stupid on the Wings part to send MacDonald back down. Hope they can pull of a win tonight but will be hard with Bertuzzi out now as well.

Yeah, I saw the other thread about Ozzie after I posted that. Good to know Joey is still in there, I hope he can get another start or two before the playoffs. I want to see if he can continue playing the way he has, I mean 3-1 with a shutout in his last five games and a save percentage of 94%.

I'll be watching this one from work. Not looking forward to hearing Pierre talk.

I think it'll be a close game...wings win 3-2 in OT

Mursak gets the game winner.

Ryan Kesler and Darren Helm put on an amazing show of speed and grit, each bagging a goal. Detroit gets lucky during OT 3-2 Wings.

I'll second that, 3-2 OT win for Wings. Canucks love losing in OT to Detroit this year for whatever reason.

Correct me if I am wrong....

75% of the P trophy winners did NOT win the Stanley Cup... seems like a curse to me.
