#2054235 10/28 GD: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 28 October 2010 - 08:44 PM

Ozzie is a much better goalie when he has a team play for him

I agree, it's not always his fault for the goals let in.

Last minute, it's our turn for the goal.

Howard and Ozzie both like to spread their legs too much.

Worst 5-holes in hockey.

Ozzie has had a great career. And Howard is just starting, he'll be great too.

You do know that Salei didn't actually steal Lilja's job, don't you? :P

Lilja passed on the contract the Wings offered.

Doesn't matter, Lilja is still a better choice.


#2044153 Andreas Lilja to Anaheim

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 11 October 2010 - 08:37 AM

I'm glad he signed with someone, but not happy that he's with the Ducks. Hopefully he'll find a way to have a good year and end up somewhere better next year.

I really hope the team shows up for Osgood tonight. I'm hoping he has a great season and very happy to see him in net tonight. For now good for Babcock giving him a fair chance.


#2038439 Lilja gets training camp invitation to Sharks

I would laugh my friggin' ass off if Lils got a contract with the Sharks and had a better year than Ericsson.

He will just to prove to the Wings that he was worth what he was asking. I hope he has a great season.

I'm glad to hear they want him. I'd prefer him in red but at least he gets to play at least one more season. Maybe the Wings can try to get him back next year if we need him.

As of yesterday SJ sent 2 more defensemen to the minors. Lilja is still on the training camp roster. Camp roster

Not sure about the order that they list the guys, but he is the 5th one, so maybe he's got a chance yet. :)

I hoping Ozzie has a good night tonight :) Go Wings!

I'll watch you eat either one of them because I won't


Shave or wax


#2032625 The person below me game...

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 11 September 2010 - 07:51 PM

The person below me knows why there is no more "minus" option and will explain.

I was noticing the little plus symbol recently because it's the same as something I work on at work, but I didn't notice the minus gone. Now you have me wondering.

c'est impossible... my house is one-story and I have no basement.

The person below me has never been to a tail-gate party...

No I never have.


The person below me is hungry. I'm starving and nothing to eat at the parent's place where I'm at right now.


#2028903 Ozzie article

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 24 August 2010 - 12:49 PM

I can see Ozzie's tenure in Detroit lasting exactly as long as McCollum's development stint in GR. To me this means Ozzie will most likely play one or two years beyond this upcoming season. But I would not be suprised to see a Howard/McCollum tandem in 2012/13. Who knows though, anything can happen, especially with goalies in Detroit.


I agree. Obviously he's doing a good job mentoring Howard and he has proven himself capable, so he will do fine as the back up. I'm just hoping that he has more of an opportunity to prove himself to all the doubters the keep saying he's done. Last season was very bad, but the circumstances caused it more than anything.


#2027253 Lilja: Red Wings only team to offer contract

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 18 August 2010 - 08:40 PM

I just can't imagine Lilja being a top4 Dman in the nhl, he's not good enough. You need more offensive abilities playing top4 minutes.


I think he was holding out more for the role than the money. If another team would be willing to give him a chance he might have been able to prove that he does have that ability. Sad he won't be here this season since I just got his jersey in February, but I'll still wear it to games.
