Yeah you're right. We sure didn't need him this year at all? :no:

Who knows. I just figured any Osgood news was better than no Osgood news.

Take a hint, dude. Your body is throwing them out all over.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I love Osgood but it's about time innit? Would have loved to had him healthy this season but it is what it is. It's about that time to hang em up...

I am okay with him coming back if he is treated like any other player in terms of performance and icetime and also if he's willing to play some games in GR if we are able to upgrade our goaltending position.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

He'll be at camp no doubt but he'll have to prove he's healthy and capable. If he is, then good for us. If not, he had a hell of a profoundly underrated career. Simple as that.

I'm sure he would if he could, he tried a couple times but it's better that he is 100% than risking injury again.



As much as I'd love to see him back in net for us, I don't know that we have the money to sign him for another year when he may be doubtful with his health and if Joey works out as a good back up, as he has this year, then we simply don't have room for him. I don't think he'll go to another team though, so I'm glad that there is a possibility to see him again! :D

I see nothing in that article that indicates he'll be playing another season.

I don't know whats worse.. Jimmy haters or Ozzy haters

I would've loved to have him back for the PO but that obviously won't happen. You can definitely tell his head is in the game, sucks not having his body physically allow him to play at the moment. Thanks for bringing the good news, regardless!!

Ozzy also said he's ready to go right now, while Holland would rather take a second string AHL'er in the playoffs.

Ozzie did say he's ready, but there was also mention that he's only practiced 2-3 days in a row. Holland wants to see him work hard for a longer time, probably to make sure he is in good enough shape. I can understand waiting, I would love to see Oz come in and save the day if Jimmy falters.
