#1968499 Shanahan would go into the Hall of Fame as a Red Wing

Posted by Datsyerberger on 30 April 2010 - 08:15 PM

I know the team has a rule about who gets their number retired and essentially, you have to be a lifer......but when the day comes that Ozzie retires, I sincerely hope the team considers making an exception for him. I wouldn't say that about just anyone who has played for this team, but Osgood is arguably one of the greatest goalies this franchise has ever had next to Sawchuk. That's not faint praise.


Ozzie more or less is a lifer. The only reason he was traded (to the celebration of Isles fans, where he did quite well) was because the Wings had a shot at landing the #1 goaltender of all time.. not because they didn't feel Ozzie couldn't be backup to him, but because it would have been unfair to Ozzie, a very successful starting goaltender who was in the midst of his prime.

I think it's obvious how the organization feels about Ozzie, both for giving him that trade, later on bringing him back despite questions about his continued ability, and from how the players constantly talk about him and seem to show him the utmost respect. I know most goalies get respect from their players to some degree, but he seems genuinely and universally liked in the locker room.

#1955858 Automatic Chara suspension recinded

Agreeing with Carman isn't a.. usual.. thing for me, but he's absolutely right here. The spirit of this rule is to stop message sending, and in cases where the fight has clearly been the result of intensity and not gooning it up, the NHL has consistently overturned the suspension.

I hate when other teams' players get injured. Our own always slack to make up for it.

No real reason to rule against that.

Dats tends to open up vs Chicago, so my money's on him. Maybe he'll get a gust of wind or something.

Are we really surprised? I didn't think so.

Craig Adams and Mike Rupp are simply role players who don't hit dirty at all. Have you ever watched the Penguins play or are you just naming everyone on the Pens that is somewhat gritty. P.S. Kronwall leaves his feet for every hit and dont get me started about Bertuzzi. The "dirty" argument is comically faulty.


Don't mind this guy, he just became a hockey fan less than a year ago.

Crosby is cheap? Todd Bertuzzi plays for your team.


Yea, but everyone knows Bert's a cheap f***.. and he isn't the 'face of the league'.


That is oh so classy. Detroit at its finest!


P.S. Those Crosby sucks chants are comical!


Oh, but he does when playing Detroit.. or do you not watch your own team in the finals?

Hey Carman, where was 'the best player in the world' tonight? Oh yea, held without a point and failing to show up when Malkin's not in the lineup, as usual.

Jimmy needs to learn to dive for calls to prevent goals/kill offense. It's my biggest gripe with his goaltending this year.

Wow. If that was Homer on that 'Nucks goal like that in front of Jimmy, that woulda been a penalty.

"The Kansas City Islanders"

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong...
