Huh? Murphy was fired at the end of March, 2013 near the end of the hockey season. Mickey Redmond filled in for the rest of the year and first round of the playoffs. Osgood started the 2013-14 season as the fill in color analyst for Mickey Redmond, and the second studio analyst with Daren Elliot while Mickey is in the booth, the exact position held by Larry Murphy. That's where I got that idea. Where did you get the idea that Osgood didn't replace Murphy? Who did he replace? Very confusing post.
I'm guess I'm confused. Are you saying that FSD fired Murphy specifically so that they could hire Osgood, or that Murphy was fired for whatever reason and then Osgood ended up getting the vacant position? I was under the impression that Murphy was fired for some unknown reason, but I never got the idea that he was fired because they wanted Osgood and/or Elliot more?
Anyway, I agree that Murphy was better.
