I have faith in Jimmy. Sure he has had his ups and downs but he's only got two years under his belt. If he can play this season near the level that he left off in the playoffs then I could see him getting Vezina consideration. And I don't care about the soft goals he has let in, if Lolongo can get Vancouver to game 7 in the finals, Jimmy can win the cup for the Wings.
Very true. I know I have my blind optimism and belief that Osgood can do anything he sets his mind to. I still think a healthy Ozzie could challenge Howard for #1, even though Babcock would never let that happen.
Just throwin this out there, but if you are gonna have such a blind optimism for Osgood then you should probably change your name to something that reflects it so we will all know how you feel.
I love Ozzie just as much as anybody and I think its obvious that he wants to play and still can play at a high level, but I think the Wings main concern is his health.. if you go with Ozzie you basically still need a 3rd option in goal just in case.
Ok..well we not getting jagr..who cares..sounds as tho eaves miller ericsson might be looking elsewhere..and alot of the bigger name free agents are being resigned by teams....what are the wings doing...i understand purple say we don't need offense but dats and hank cant do it all..if they healthy and the mule..well he never healthy...what's going on???
I hate when purple go 'round sayin' stuff.
But yeah, welcome to the boards, but I am sure if you take some more time to look around you will notice that people around here don't miss much, so if there is a topic to be discussed, chances are there is already a seperate thread for it.
Jagr definitely wouldn't be my first choice, but AT THE RIGHT PRICE.. and ONLY at the right price, he could be a decent top-6 plug for a year given the not-so-strong free agent pool this year.. then next year take that money and sign someone better long term..
Not really a huge issue but its a little slow around here and I figure we could use another enforcer thread as opposed to a line thread.
Anyways, Wings currently have a HUGE lead,almost 85% of the current votes, for the worst enforcing team in the league against Nashville, Phoenix, Tampa Bay and Carolina..
I am gonna say the number is slightly thrown off by the overwhelming Wings hatred that is found on Hockeyfights.com, but is it true? I know the Wings dont have any real "enforcers" but I don't think that they are the worst enforcing team in the league just because they have the least overall fights.. I mean it's not very often you would see this team get pushed around this year..
Anyways.. guess the only real questions are.. do you think it's true? And if it is, is it a huge concern going forward?
