#2086215 Congratulations Chris Osgood!

Posted by Frozen-Man on 28 December 2010 - 01:42 PM

My problem is he barely won this game after losing two before it, and people act like he pulled off the performance of a lifetime.


First off, seeing as it was a completion of something that only 9 other players in last 93 years have done, yeah it was the performance of a lifetime. Oh yeah and he stopped 46 of 49 shots for a sv% of 93.9% - yeah pretty good game. Not to mention a few other little things like only allowing 1-7 pp to result in a goal.

The game went to overtime because of his "amazing performance".
He let in two goals he should have had, potentially 3.



Yeah and he did let in about 10 shots that should have been goals but he managed to stop them. Seriously you are complaining that 7 power plays and and 49 shots resulted in 3 goals. You can say Ozzy hasn't played well lately but you are just completely insane if you are trying to argue that he wasn't incredible last night.

This is with Lidstrom having an amazing night.



Yeah and the rest of the team playing very poorly and giving up 49 shots. Additionally, Lids may have played great but they were without Datsyuk, Cleary, Raffy (and to a much lesser degree Modano). To say Lids had a great game and therefore it should have been easy for the team to win is silly. They were without their one player mentioned as a Hart contender this year, their hottest goal scorer (maybe tied with Mule) and their 2nd best Dman. But yeah Lids was great so it must have been an easy win.
:rolleyes:




Anyway, awesome game by Ozzy, incredible achivement, and hope he continues to play like that the rest of the season. :clap: :clap:

It was a matter between the two of us, and the two of us ALONE that didn't require butting in by anybody else, which you did. Your snarky response wasn't necessary.


Nothing anyone says to anyone on the boards is between them "alone". That's what PMs are for. Maybe I was tired of trying to weed through your Internet dick measuring contest with CaliWingsFan to get to all the other posts in this thread that aren't two grown men calling each other assholes.

I'm with you on this one. :thumbup:


And the world is not shocked at all.

Sorry, you're right. I embellished that comment a bit. He should have had 1 or 2 of those goals last night. I'll give the 3rd (last) one to the Av's.

I'm not trolling. I'm stating my opinion.

I'm happy he got 400. He's done a ton for the wings in the past, but he makes me cringe every time I see him in net.

Can he please retire now (since he'll never be traded again)?


Can you celebrate Osgood getting his 400th win without making backhanded comments?

Okay boys, put your wieners back in your shorts, please.

I'm happy he got 400. Now please stop playing him.

And our problem with you is that you are pissing on the party on something that has barely been accomplished in the NHL, just by 10 people now, and you do not seem to get this whatsoever.

Everybody gets that one of the goals he gave up was junky. Osgood said so as well.

Oh, and he made 45+ saves matching a career high and goalies typically aren't depended on, and shouldn't be depended on to make that many saves in a game. So I'd say it was an amazing performance.

Now I will repeat to you. 400 wins. Very few people have accomplished this. Regardless of how Osgood did this, it is a helluva accomplishment.

This thread should only be about giving him kudos for getting to 400 wins. Not about last year's junky record, not about soft goals he gave up in the playoffs in the late 90s, not about is he possibly going to be inconsistent again this year.

400 wins celebrating ONLY.

Don't be an a'hole and piss on the party anymore is the point, which unforuntately you've happened to do twice. Be an a'hole in an Osgood thread where it is warranted, which isn't this thread.

Babcock is a coach not a player, the performance on the ice wasn't good, the 2nd period was abysmal, he wants the team to play better because he knows osgood/howard only have a game like this every 15th game or so.


Wings played the night before, we are down 4 top players, lines were shuffled, and the altitude is a lot different in Denver which can take a toll...

Seriously, why can't you just be happy for ONCE and CELEBRATE without spewing VENOM during such a GLORIOUS occasion

It was classic Osgood; flopping and flailing and diving all over the place. I love it. The ultimate, consummate Red Wing.

I really figured we didn't have much of a chance, what with the altitude thing, back-to-backs, and Rafalski, Cleary and Datsyuk out. I mean, how could they possibly pull off a win?

But as I watched Ozzie he looked so calm, so focused. Bodies were flying around the net or landing on him and he just kept his eye on the puck. And for as many games as I've seen him play, it had to be one of his best efforts. He earned that win from every angle.

And to those of you who suggest it was a fluke win, or say he should now retire obviously gained your ten seconds of attention by making such stupid statements, but it doesn't change the fact that he is indeed a champion and a fighter and you will never understand (nor will most of us) how much heart that kid has.

Or someone who hasn't had faith in Ozzy for years. As for your 46 shots, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Luckily this isn't a thread about your faith in Ozzy. So why not celebrate his 400th win or get the f*** out of it?

jesus, is it that hard not to be an ******* in a thread where people are celebrating a career milestone?

now that ozzie has #400, do we see less of him?

Certainly hope not, he played very well tonight. He's proved he can still do his job, but he's got to do it as the back up.

Ozzie's thef****** man and I don't care if you call me an Osgood "slappy" for saying that.


#2085965 Congratulations Chris Osgood!

Congrats to him...but can we just ride J-Ho for the rest of the season now?


Seems fitting for someone at LGW to say that after Osgood stops 46 shots in a game.

I hope not. If Babcock is going to continue with his "ride the hot hand" philosophy, Ozzie deserves more starts.
