Because Howard is in a little slump and he is the future goalie of the organization. Ozzie wont be our guy going into playoffs and likely wont even be on the team next year. I don't know why so many people think he should start as much as Howard.
I'll be at this game, looking forward to seeing Tatar and Mursak live in action. I hope the wings win.
I can't speak for others, but I would like to see Ozzie have a few more starts because A) Howard needs a bit of rest now and again so he will be fresher for the playoffs and B) if, God forbid, anything happens to Howie, we need Ozzie to be rust-free.
Wings: Mursak, Hudler, Kindl, Helm (because that's all that's left)
Stars: Kronner breaks a stick attempting to clear. The puck goes off Flip's butt, is fanned by Bertuzzi, the breeze from which redirects the puck and sends it bouncing off Ott's skate and into the net.
I guess you neglected to bother reading the thread title, much less it's contents.
I have been following the entire thread and have read the title. To recap: You are boycotting the Winter Classic and will go to any lengths to keep telling us this.
Now someone chimes in with a different opinion. Throughout the thread different people (myself included) have expressed interest in watching this particular game. I have no problem with those who don't wish to watch, but it seems you have a problem with those who do.
I guess you neglected to bother to remember that this is a discussion board.
Those were my heavy drug years. Didn't get clean until '87. Had I known that somewhere in NS Sid the Kid was being born, I might not have sobered up.
In all honesty, that was before I had internet and cable tv. Following the team was next to impossible. I just knew from some of dad's friends who still had family in Detroit that things weren't going well, but that we had some new kid that was going to save the day.
Being a Lions fan, I didn't believe it.
For all of you who sat through the games, cheered on the team, and believed that someday they would rise again, I salute you. You are the backbone of the team.
Going Christmas caroling. We went out to carol for a 103-year-old lady from church. She lived on her own until she was 102, then she fell so she moved in with her daughter on her farm. She is mentally sharp as ever, but she has been using a wheelchair lately.
Since they live 40 miles out, they don't get to church much in the winter. So we went out to her.
She's just the sweetest lady, and we had fun doing it.
