#2135450 Osgood on LTIR

come back ozzie...we need you to save us in the playoffs again.


#2135066 Osgood on LTIR

Posted by gcom007 on 23 March 2011 - 06:15 PM

i know people are gonna bash me for saying this. but it was kind of selfish for ozzie to claim he'd be find and back by march. he put his own hopes ahead of the interest of the team. we could have gone out and got a replacement at the deadline, but he insisted that he'd be back. now you get a situation where howard will be run into the ground by the second round. i like joey, but i don't think he's big game material. ozzie needed to give this team a chance to win by being completely honest about the seriousness of his situation. he kept downplaying it like it was nothing. i just don't think thats the actions of a team player. sounds like an old guy desperate for one last shot.


There's these people called doctors that have been signing off on this too. You really think a professional hockey team is just going to be going on the word from the player? Don't be silly. And even so, I doubt it was a matter of Osgood being expected to be ready so much as a lack of guys available that were worth moving on.

Edit:

Oh yeah, the same "team player" probably suffered a worse injury playing through the pain earlier in the season when Howard was playing like garbage. He put his own health on the line to try and help the team, knowing full well that these sorts of injuries are harder to come back from at his age. It's fine to be upset that he's not healthy and all; it's disappointing. But don't question the guy's character over it. That's just absurd. The guy loves this team as much anyone who's ever worn the jersey.

Looks like we're f***ed for the playoffs, unless Howard switches bodies with a good goalie by then.

I have more confidence in Joey Mac right now than I do with Howard. So I hope to get the point across Joey gets a few starts in a row.

All I have to say is that this game defined why I hate the shootout.

I don't think anybody would have been upset with calling that a 4-4 tie. Both teams had their ups and downs for the game. It was fast, fun and entertaining.

Neither team deserved to lose it in a frigging shootout.

In the buttocks. :ph34r:

I know it won't likely happen, but I'd love to play these tards again in the Finals. Just to feel my blood boil again.

I'd love it. Except we dont have a goalie that could beat Pittsburgh 4 times, unless Ozzie comes back and has a little mojo left.

Seriously Jimmy wins way more than he loses and if you day it's because he's got a great D you're totally wrong


You're right.

It's because we're great offensively, and can score 5 goals when he gives up 4.

i dont think you could understand my hatred for crosby, everyone one saw him lift the cup on our ice on tv, but i saw it live in front of me, after he didnt play more than half of game 7, he was okay to lift it up, and the smirk on bettman's face in the picture when crosby lifts the cup is just gut wrenching to me. I hate crosby, i hate the penguins, and i hate the city of pittsburgh. i dont care if he plays or not, i did it last year at home, and i will do it this year. tonight is my night to unleash all my hatred for him and the pens. dont try and stop me please :ranting:


I noticed that too. He's too injured to play in the most important game of his life, but he's okay to pick up a 35 pound trophy and skate around, holding it over his head. Hmmmm

I know you hate the Pens, a lot of people do, but if Yzerman and Lidstrom taught us anything, its to always take the high road. Chanting "Crosby Sucks" tonight would be just as ridiculous as Chicago fans chanting "Detroit sucks" when they're playing someone else.


#2128338 Jimmy Howard watch thread

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 March 2011 - 09:43 AM

I have to agree. Seriously, I go to the HFboards to get more intelligent hockey talk. I come here to hear some biased Wings perspective and the most stupid comments from armchair Wings fans. Anyone with a straight face saying that Howard lost the LA game is an idiot. Howard has had his best stretch of hockey over the course of the last couple weeks, and because of the defensive lapses in front of him, they haven't done so well. I don't blame Howard for this at all. I blame the product in front of him.

This board is often all about extremes, and as is often the case, the answer lies somewhere in the middle.

I wouldn't pin this loss on Howard. But I would also say he didn't have a particularly great game. Even when it didn't affect the play around him, he was giving up rebounds on what should be relatively easy shots to corral.

No one here can honestly say that they feel comfortable with Howard in net in crucial games.

See you talk about how Howard has "no chance" on any of the goals he lets in (the many times he lets in 4 goals a game) because of the bad D mistakes. Well, here is game 6 against Dallas from 2008 and you look at all of those saves Ozzie manages to make on "no- chance" shots to keep his team in the game. I find it halarious that certain Wings fans find it impossible to see that Howard is not going to win it all for the Wings when he lets in 4 goals a game practically; it seems this year the Wings are only guaranteed to win if they score at least 4 or 5 goals! That tells me that Howard is not doing his job as goal keeper because goalies should be able to provide saves for his team so they can win 2-1, 3-2 on a consistent basis. If we go into the playoffs with Howard, we are doomed it is as simple as that because, in the playoffs, teams are not able to score 4 or 5 goals a game. Oh, and if you like, later I can pull some videos from Howard in the playoffs from last year and how he blew it for the Wings in game 6 against Phoenix, and REALLY blew it in game 3 against the Sharks.

Simply put, if Ozzie can get going when he comes back, our best bet for success is with him.

Don't worry everyone.

We'll make a move on defense at the deadline and fix all this s***.

Disagree. Octopi should not be thrown on the road. They should be thrown on the ice.

And only during the playoffs. Tradition. Respect it.

Please, Wings. Win this one.

If and when I get out of this hellhole that is Michigan,when i go to a game the road, I' chucking some Pi. Plus, playing in Phoenix is like playing at home, gotta appease the home crowd with some Pi. And if we're going off tradition then we might as well find a 16 legged animal to throw on the ice, since the tradition was 8 legs for 8 wins.

Not seeing Franzen in the line-up, but now that I think about it I haven't seen him in about 17 games or so...

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 03 March 2011 - 12:28 AM

If we lose this game, having pretty much a full 2 min PP in OT, I expect all of the pleasant pumpkin pies to go to bed and let us wreak havoc. That said, I REALLY HOPE THE WINGS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS PP
