#1917221 What to do with Osgood next Year?

Posted by Doc Holliday on 16 March 2010 - 01:27 PM

1. Osgood is not frustrated. He has been a great mentor to Howard and the team has been taking note.

2. Osgood commented on the fact that both him and Howard didn't have a chance to start for a good month (Howard in November, Osgood in February) and it seems like that has been dealt with fine

3. Osgood will get more playing time next year because the team will most likely be healthy the majority of the year and wins won't be as hard to get as this year. Considering the team is 7-2 since the Olympic break (with Howard not playing like he did in February) I think they will be in good shape next year.

4. Howard still needs a mentor to get him through his sophomore year so he doesn't become the next Steve Mason or Dan Ellis. Plus he is a clutch playoff goaltender, and if Howard does bad this post-season or next Osgood would be the best backup available.

In short, he stays.

Fil and Z need to make some quicker decisions, holding onto the puck for too long isnt the best options. Shots with traffic, we need some.

I wonder if there's beer on the sun :lol:

Seriously, being from southern Alberta, I'm not sure whether to feel ashamed or proud to be from the same region as Rowsdower

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's maybe because Calgary isn't on the west coast?

Anything west of Detroit is on the west coast.

a FF13 fan calling me ***...irony on a base level.

Reading comprehension fail! Why do you hate *** people and Final Fantasy? Some *** man use your bum as a Nintendo and shove a cartridge up there when you were younger?

Back on topic, Wings must win this game, otherwise it's going to be an even steeper mountain to climb.

#1916117 Samuelsson highest scoring swede as of today

Posted by Finnish Wing on 15 March 2010 - 07:53 AM

I always loved this guy. We should've never let him go. You all remember how I said we did a terrible mistake when we didn't resign him? We should fire Ken Holland, he knows absolutely nothing. I'm still a big Samuelsson supporter. I've always loved Swedish players so much!

#1915933 Wings Fatigued from the Last Few Playoff Runs?

Posted by CenterIce on 14 March 2010 - 08:56 PM

its not an excuse if it's true...

just sayin

I can't think of a three year span where they made the Conference Finals or Stanley Cup Finals in a row. They have usually been all the way or get out in the first or second round. I don't think all the guys who were injured for long periods this year should be tired, but certain guys like Datsyuk, Lidstrom, and Stuart have logged a lot of tough minutes this year, because they have had to make up for players out. Those guys have the right to be tired.

#1915877 When Does Osgood Start?

Posted by SouthernWingsFan on 14 March 2010 - 07:24 PM

I'd expect to see Osgood play one of these back-to-back games on Friday/Saturday, but unless Howard just falls off the face of the planet where he alone loses the team a game, then there's no reason to yank him as he's still been pretty solid lately overall, sans the Vancouver game where everyone was pretty much bad.

I'm not ready to throw Ozzie under the bus yet. A lesson learned a long time ago.

hopefully never.

#1915764 When Does Osgood Start?

Posted by MCleveland89 on 14 March 2010 - 02:38 PM

Osgood starts when Howard has a horrid game and loses.

Or when Howie's let in 4 goals after two periods and Babcock throws him out there for s***s and giggles.
