Mickey doesn't normally do road trips. I think it's due to colitis or a similar condition.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

I think the content of what Ozzie says is very good.  He just needs to learn to be more dynamic in how he talks. 

 

 

I thought with Mick it was celiac disease or something like that.  Which isn't really a reason not to travel these days.  You can get a fair amount of gluten free stuff in most cities.  Maybe he just doesn't like traveling anymore after so many years.  I can't really blame him.

I miss Murph too. He got drunk and slurred his words which made the commentary fun (jk).

 

Seriously though, with Ozzie there's too much dead air. But he's new at it; he'll get used to it more and hopefully put some more dynamic to his voice.

I'm pretty sure he had cancer.  I think I've even heard Ken reference it and say something like "but you're all over that now, right?"  I don't have a source for that though.

 

Actually, I do...

Redmond has also battled lung cancer twice and continues to live with Celiac disease, which requires that he eat a strict specialized diet.

Mick doesn't travel because his diet requires gluten free food.  At least that's what he said last year.  He talked about it a lot.

 

Edit: Would anyone like to see Drapes give it a shot?  He seems more personable than Ozzie.

He made a comment about Bertuzzi eating nachos by the pool in Phoenix on a road trip a while back too, haha.  Some stuff he says is pretty funny :)

Mickey has celiac.  Different people have different needs.  Some just can't eat gluten; others can't eat anything that has been prepared with something that has previously been used to prepare something with gluten (not sure what extreme that goes to).

 

IOW, he has to eat food prepared in a gluten-free kitchen.  My cousin's daughter has celiac.  She can eat food prepared in their kitchen, but her food has to be kept separately.  They also have to clean surfaces very well after they prepare food that has gluten.

 

Both of my sisters have gluten-intolerances.  One can't eat it at all; the other can eat some now and then, but has to return to a strict gluten-free diet afterwards.

 

At Mickey's age, I can see why he would rather not travel unless it's the playoffs.

 

Ozzie's getting better.  I still miss Murph, but I think once Ozzie loosens up, he'll be fine.  I saw a recent picture of Murph.  He really needs to go back to the old haircut and ditch the glasses.  Aside from the smile, he is not the same Murph I fell in love with all those years ago.

Ozzie was chosen over Manny to be he broadcaster.  Manny is currently doing college games for FSD and he is actually pretty colorful...I think they chose Ozzie over Manny because of the history of Ozzie in goal, but that choice was a mistake.  Ozzie sucks.

Manny - as in Manny Legace?

 

Thought he'd never want to return to Detroit after 2006.

MIck hasnt  been doing road trips for a couple years now. I think he goes on the road if its a quick one or two day trip but thats all. I like the information Ozzie gives but he just doesn't have the tone or voice to be the color guy. I think hes a heck of a lot better doing intermission analysis than up in the booth.

He'd be better suited for between the benches, tbh

Osgood makes the Red Wings broadcast intolerable for me, although he does counterbalance some of Daniels' exuberance. 


Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

I love Ozzie,but it seems like he doesn't want to criticize the Wings players and only points the good plays.I understand he's pretty close to the most of them,but come on man,you're not in the locker room anymore :lol:

 

He's a rookie announcer,he could change,but Mickey's..."take a good look young hockey players" style is what I prefer more.

You can find gluten free products in grocery stores, but when you have a severe food intolerance, eating out is a nightmare.  You just never know how food is prepared or what might not be listed on the menu.  Mickey was saying once, he pretty much had to pack all his own food and have a room with a microwave or sneak in a hot plate to try and get a "safe" meal.  I can understand why he doesn't want to travel.

Love Ozzie but he sounds like he needs to catch his breath after 2 or 3 sentences
