If not then I say dress the kid. Will he play? I hope not, but I would rather him ride the lumber and keep Mursak up.


well my thinking is that cuz now that ozzie is on the LTIR, his salary comes off the books for now, and then we have room for mursak and macdonald. i could be wrong though..

I say let Joey be our #2 in the playoffs this kid has earned it! I have seen him get bounced around the league and show promise with horrible teams but knowbody ever gives him a full nhl contract! Ozzie has had his time to shine give this kid Joey Mac a shot! Used to watch him make ridiculous saves for the Islanders last year and he has been solid for us lately even outplaying Howard!

Thank you Teeman!

We could really use Nabokov right about now.

This news is depressing on so many fronts.

Dammit something told me the injury was much worse than they said it was. Something in osgoods voice whenever he talked about it just sounded like he was trying to convince you that it wasn't that bad, but it was.

Tough news to hear about this situation.. If this is the end for him, not the way I'm sure all of us thought would be it... Get better quick Ozzie

You do realize he's 31, right?

If Ozzie is healthy come playoffs, which looks doubtful, I don't want him as the back up. He's missed too much time and won't be in game shape no matter how much he practices. It's too risky even with his pedigree.

I think this might be it for his career unfortunately :(


I agree. I don't mind having J-Mac as backup though. He's been decent. I think Kenny and co knew this whole time that Ozzie was maybe not going to come back 100% healthy. Would have been really nice to have Nabokov right about now....

i know people are gonna bash me for saying this. but it was kind of selfish for ozzie to claim he'd be find and back by march. he put his own hopes ahead of the interest of the team. we could have gone out and got a replacement at the deadline, but he insisted that he'd be back. now you get a situation where howard will be run into the ground by the second round. i like joey, but i don't think he's big game material. ozzie needed to give this team a chance to win by being completely honest about the seriousness of his situation. he kept downplaying it like it was nothing. i just don't think thats the actions of a team player. sounds like an old guy desperate for one last shot.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Who? Mursak?

He went back to Sweden. If you mean McCollum, he has been in Toledo much of the year.


D. god dammit islanders

Probably would have been someone else. We were near the bottom of the list.


E. ozzy is gunna have a remarkable comeback a week before playoffs and lead the wings to the cup
Right now, I would prefer the Wings to win a Cup with Howard to get experience, but if either one gets the Cup, it all works. Just don't see Osgood being ready for a playoff run, since he hasn't played many games the whole year.

Looks like we're f***ed for the playoffs, unless Howard switches bodies with a good goalie by then.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

There's these people called doctors that have been signing off on this too. You really think a professional hockey team is just going to be going on the word from the player? Don't be silly. And even so, I doubt it was a matter of Osgood being expected to be ready so much as a lack of guys available that were worth moving on.

Edit:

Oh yeah, the same "team player" probably suffered a worse injury playing through the pain earlier in the season when Howard was playing like garbage. He put his own health on the line to try and help the team, knowing full well that these sorts of injuries are harder to come back from at his age. It's fine to be upset that he's not healthy and all; it's disappointing. But don't question the guy's character over it. That's just absurd. The guy loves this team as much anyone who's ever worn the jersey.

I'm in med school right now. a lot of a doctor's diagnosis in this case is related to what the patient is experiencing. you have to take the word of your patient. scans and tests aren't the be all and end all. if ozzie is coming out in interviews and saying hes gonna be fine by march then he likely was saying the same to his doctors. it seems as though the injury was a serious one, and its hard to be realistic when your career is on the line.

I'm not doubting that he put his health on the line. it also wasn't a good choice thats all im saying. i love ozzie and what he's done for us. i don't want you to think im hating on him directly. it just seems like he's getting old and he's not the same player physically. i don't think he's fully accepted that. neways, im not interested in fighting. hence the :"i know im gonna get ripped on" in the original post.

It could be that Ozzie was feeling good with what he was doing at the time. He can only judge by what he had done and as practices got more intense for him is probably when he realized he's not ready. As much as I hate that he's not able to come back, he's making the right decision for his own health and the sake of team. What if he pushed himself and said he'll be fine and then something happens during an important game? Then everyone ends up losing.

I wish he would have had this surgery last season when he was sitting most of it anyway, he would have had longer to recover.

Thanks Offsides

Not good. Too bad to see Ozzie go out this way, until he actually tends the net for a game I wont believe he's better or closer. Too many times have they said that this season.
