Wow the amount of cynicism in the Wings fan base is amazing. At the beginning of this thread, almost everybody was bashing him for coming back. Now that he's retiring its all, "Amazing career! Thanks for everything!" No wonder goalies have it rough here. Jeez.

Well, I have always liked Ozzie and was upset when he was let go. Glad to see he went out as one of the top 10 goalies of all time! HHOF is where he belongs and to be honest... I think the #30 belongs up next to #19. He has been a corner stone in 3 of 4 cups, and almost got us another in '09. As a Wing he has outdone almost every goaltender that has came and gone. I can't wait to see what he does next and will miss him dearly.

Congrats on an outstanding career Ozzie. :siren: :siren: :siren: :clap: :clap: :clap:

On of my favorite Osgood moments in his career. :)

Thanks Offsides

personal attacks for expressing my opinion on the osgood retirement?

i didn't even say anything bad about him.



Your post was the equivalent of saying "Good riddance, go f*** yourself." If you think that's acceptable, that's your problem. The rest of us shouldn't have to deal with it.

Even worse is this is the only sentiments this guy ever has, negative troll-esk stuff.

Kudos to your statement. The rest of us shouldn't have to deal with it? Is there a banhammer to be had?

Even his name is offensive. Extremely offensive. This is no coincidence.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I think #30 should be in the rafters too. I don't know what else he needs to do.

Damn, I'll miss having Ozzie in the net. This is a guy who was so loyal to the Wings he was willing to turn down offers to be a starter for other teams to come back to Detroit for no guarantees other than to be a backup at best. If that kind of loyalty isn't rewarded with some kind of big Chris Osgood Night, it'll be a travesty, but I'm not worried, the organization will definitely do what's right by him. Can't wait for his HOF induction in a few years.

Thanks Ozzie. You're the f***in' man (I've been trying, but I really need the profanity here :ph34r:).

The fact that all the guys that have been on the team since I started really following hockey are retiring is really making me feel old.

It's hard watching so many players from those 90s teams that made me fall in love with hockey go. Thanks for the memories, Ozzie.

It's hard watching so many players from those 90s teams that made me fall in love with hockey go. Thanks for the memories, Ozzie.

That's how I feel about it. Watching tribute videos today was like watching childhood memories. A lot of my favorite memories growing up were being with my family and going nuts over the Wings. When these players retire, it's as much about those times as anything.

Thanks for a lot of great memories.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y
