#2200582 The Real Osgood Question

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 July 2011 - 12:01 PM

Is he as good as or better than Sawchuck?


This is a valid question, and one I've been pondering since discussion came up about this.

If it is agreed that Osgood is better, then he belongs up with Terry. If not, I really don't think so.

I can't come to a good conclusion. The eras were different. Terry played with no back-up and through all sorts of pain and injuries and troubles. Terry's life was tragic, as was his death.

All of this makes it hard to have an objective comparison as to which is better, and if Ozzie belongs there.

My heart says yes. My head says no. My stomach says go cook some spaghetti.


Are you guys joking? :blink:

Sawchuk is one of the 5 greatest goalies of all time. Osgood isn't even close to being as good as him. Whether Ozzie should be in the rafters has nothing to do with Sawchuk. You guys talk about Sawchuk as if he's just another solid goalie.

I say if Red Kelly isn't in the rafters, then Ozzie shouldn't be either. Same with Fedorov. Both those players were better Wings than Osgood, and neither will likely get a banner.

May as well have used this Jets logo.

WTF? :blink:

I was under the impression they were going to use the old logo. This logo sucks compared to that.

I didn't know that Crymson was an online columnist.

:D


#2199990 Grade Holland

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 July 2011 - 09:16 PM

I'll give him a C.

We didn't have many "big" free agents we needed to re-sign, other than Lidstrom, who wasn't going anywhere else and whose decision to return was solely his. Hence, Holland didn't keep any of our stars from leaving. Also, he overpaid Ericsson terribly, so I'm being generous in this paragraph when it comes to our free agent re-signings.

Likewise, he didn't make any significant enough moves with free agents to get a better grade. He merely added some depth.

We still need some more size in our bottom 6 forwards, and less injury plagued older players on our top 6. Those things haven't been addressed.


#2199639 Game 7 Sharks vs Wings

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 July 2011 - 09:45 PM

If I remember correctly, it went something like this:

Datsyuk - Datsyuk - Datsyuk
Datsyuk - Datsyuk - Datsyuk
Datsyuk - Datsyuk - Datsyuk
Datsyuk - Datsyuk - Datsyuk


#2198974 Things you're hoping to see more of this season.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 July 2011 - 08:59 PM

Less injuries.

More fights.

Not spotting 3 games in a playoff series to the other team.


#2198702 Still some noise about Wings picking up a top 4 Dman

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 July 2011 - 01:31 PM

Is this enough to stop Wings fans from making "Let's get Weber!" comments?


He's just jesting.

Nobody actually "wants" to play in Nashville.

That shade of "yellow" makes me think they need to drink more water.


#2198700 The easiest team to root for...

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 July 2011 - 01:29 PM

For the last three, not Bahstin Celtics, New England Patriots and Manchester United?


Lakers beat the Celtics in their last Finals meeting in 2010.
Steelers have won 2 Superbowls since the Patriots last win.
FC Barcelona owned ManU last month in the championship game. Also, they have Messi, and not Mickey Rooney's grandson. ;)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 July 2011 - 11:48 AM

That's what I was thinking, 3 thru 5 are all strangely high to me...


It's easy to root for a team that leads the league in PIM every year.

Maybe Shea Weber will pull a "Hulk Hogan to the NWO" move, and join the Wings.

:D

Maybe Larry Murphy is planning a comeback.


#2198220 2012-13 Realignment Leak?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 July 2011 - 08:50 PM

If Florida and Tampa moved, it would make things a lot easier on the eye when looking at that map.

Then we could just have two Eastern divisions, instead of putting a city like New York or Washington in something called the South Division.
