It's the one where Izzy and George both die.

That's how they get you to keep watching, there always has to be something major at the end of the season. I didn't get into Grey's when it first came out, but now that I've been hooked for a while I still like it. The characters have changed quite a bit.

#1977623 Don't blame Howard.. blame Babcock

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 06 May 2010 - 03:23 PM

I completely agree with this in the goalie side of things. Babcock has made the team totally dependent on Howard the entire season, he pretty much refused to give Osgood a chance to play, one game here or there is no way to prove yourself. What would have happened if Howard was hurt and unable to play late in the season? They'd put Ozzie in and hope for the best but blame him if we didn't make the playoffs. I know that Osgood is doing a great job mentoring Howard and I'm sure it's appreciated, both of them know how important he is in that process. He's dealt with a lot of criticism and adversity over the years but doesn't let that shake him.

Yes this is a team sport so the entire team is responsible for the terrible play of late, so we don't really know what would have happen if Ozzie was given more chances to play during the season. What's done is done for this season. It will be interesting to see what happens next season, I don't think Osgood wants to leave Detroit, but if he's not going to be played he deserves better than a season of watching the games from the locker room. I sure hope that he and Babcock can resolve whatever issues they are having with each other because this seem like it's more than just poor play. Osgood was never give a real chance to prove himself this season.

Work is overrated, you work hard all week. But since you want to talk yourself into it, you do nothing but work around the house this weekend. No stopping to sleep or eat, but your place is immaculate, your yard is all trimmed and looks great with all those new plants and flowers. Stevie is most appreciative that you cleaned him inside and out, even waxed too. By the time it's time to go back to work you are so exhausted that you can barely move.

I wish I were better able to help my friends in need that are too far away for me to see.

#1930660 Osgood to start Sunday

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 02 April 2010 - 02:03 PM

Yeah! I'm so glad that he'll be playing in a game or 2 before the end of the season. :yowza:

Glad this wasn't posted yesterday because everyone would have figured it wasn't true.

I found his blog in Swedish and have been reading it with the google translator. I'm glad he decided to to it in English too. I don't really care about the typing, it's nice of him to do the translation for us instead of having the funky translation from those translators. It's nice to have the players perspective on things, will have to catch up as I have been missing out on checking it lately.

Neither, not a fan of really sweet things and they both seem sweet.

The person below me needs a hug. I'll give you one anyway cause I need one.

#1914889 Do we release Ozzie after this season...

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 12 March 2010 - 10:11 PM

B-O-O H-O-O. This is EXACTLY the time for a Hall of Fame goaltender to pull some solid performances out of his ass. Sitting on it, or otherwise.

Like I said earlier this evening, the puck in is his end. He either makes the save or he doesn't...
(wow, that's a really bad analogy, but how fitting?)

I love Osgood. It's time for him to prove his worth or sit. Plain. Simple. Done.

whatchoo' know about that?!?!?!

(OMG. I'm am going to regret these post tomorrow... and yet... wont' =D

Not going to argue with a drunk. But, how exactly can he prove himself when he's not given any chances to actually plays some games consistently. That was my original point, he has not had a chance to play or prove his worth this season.

I don't know how we can really judge Osgood's play this season. He's barely had a chance to play and when he has, the team is struggling, which I know isn't an excuse but it's not also a reason to blame him for a loss. I think that the goalie situation this year has been very unfair. I understand Babcock wanting to play the hot goalie, but I know that Ozzie started a couple games and got the win. But did he get the start next game? No. He hasn't had a chance to prove himself and yet everyone is saying he's done.

I think that he has no problem being a mentor to Howard. He's got enough confidence in himself that he'll accept whatever role the Wings want him to take, he may not be happy with it but I'm sure he'll do it because he knows it's best. Ozzie has had a great career with the Wings, but of course everyone only remembers the bad stuff because it's happening right now. I'm proud of him anyway.
