So, the topic is pretty self-explanatory... with Holland talking to Osgood and a decision expected this week, who do you think?

Just something to kill time and break up the monotony until training camp!

I think he may actually go with Ozzie if they talk and Oz feels that he is ready to go. It would be nice to have Ozzie as the back up and Conklin in the wings just in case something happens, although if Conklin doesn't get a chance to really play the it's a waste for him. I've said that I don't like when we sign the old guys for a 1 year contract, but that's mostly the non-Wings coming here for their last hurrah. I just want Osgood to have a chance to go out on his terms and hopefully in a good way.

Thanks Offsides

I voted Oz, but I was really torn between him and Conk. Heart says Oz, but Conk will be fine. Brain says Conk, but Oz will be fine.

I guess whatever happens, I will be a little happy and a little sad.

Right after voting on this topic I saw this on Twitter:

"The Red Wings have agreed to terms with goaltender Joey MacDonald on a two-year deal."

Not sure if this means he's the back-up, or if it's just an AHL deal.

I really hope it's an AHL deal. I do not want to see Joey MacDonald be our back-up.

I don't have the link, but there was a report last week that he'd be open to coming back to Detroit to play for GR, as long as it was a 1 way deal, so he was making NHL money and that is what I suspect this is - They signed him to a 1 way deal, with the intention of him playing in GR, however, if needed, he's a good back-up plan...

Good thing we don't play any games at the Joe, considering he has about a .01 win percentage there... oh, wait...

He'll be the back up to the back up which will be Ozzie (in my world). But I do think that if that's the case it's a good signing and really hope we'll be hearing that Ozzie has agreed to a 1 year contract.

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

Nor do I, lol. Although, I think Emery is probably the "strongest" goalie out there in the FA market based on talent. At this point I wouldn't mind a trade for a solid back-up.
