@Bill_Roose: #RedWings Nyquist lost a top front tooth last night on play in front of #Canadiens net. Says it put a hole in his mouth guard.

I don't think he was ever bad here. Average/acceptable but not outstanding, sure. But not like some complained about him.
 
EDIT I also think Osgood deserves more credit than most give him
 
EDIT 2 he was also way past his primeyears those seasons, I thought ppl had unrealistic expectations, and despite that he still played pretty good


People give ozzy far too much credit around here. He wasn't very good at all when he left Detroit.

Hasek on the other hand was awesome and as pointed out was still decent when he came to Detroit.

What happened with the waived off goal is a perfect example of why the NHL needs a coaches challenge.

jimmys been stellar whys everyone up his ass all the time?

The Wings could have the spawn of Terry Sawchuk and Dominik Hasek in net and there would be those wings fans that would complain that they are terrible. Its called "next goalie up'itis" and it has plagued Wings fans for years despite 4 Stanley Cups. There is no known cure....

Well, when you only score one or two goals a game this is what you get. I think they've looked decent so far this year, but they have GOT to start scoring more. Then we won't have to worry about bulls*** waving off of goals or uncalled penalties or what the f*** ever.

I'm just glad that wasn't a playoff game. My God. Maybe there really needs to be a challenge system in this league...

Tats and Jurco need to find their offensive games so we can get some secondary scoring.

And we're back to being last years team.

What, by getting bent over by the refs? This game should've been 2-0 Wings, maybe 2-1.  ******* joke.

Dom brought us that Cup.  I know we were star laden, but that Colorado series was all Dom, especially game 6 and 7 shutouts... well game 7 was ours either way, but that game 6 in Denver...all Dom.

 

 

Thankfully he didn't play for any poser team who will also try to retire his number "just because" in order to get in on the celebration...ahem, cough cough, Colorado, cough, Bourque...Thankfully Detroit isn't like that.

His tenure in Buffalo was the highest peak any goalie ever reached.  The 1998 Gold Medal and 1999 Finals run was the pinnacle of that, although some would argue it was the Hart trophies.  Truthfully, he could have won the Hart trophy every year during that stretch.  

 

Completely agree. He definitely didn't have the longevity of a Roy or Brodeur which is why he usually doesnt go down as the best ever. But IMO he had the best "prime" of any goalie in history. Just so much better then the second best goalie in the league.

Classy move by the Sabre's organization having the ceremony while the Wings are in town.

Well-deserved.  The greatest ever*.

 

*This statement is my opinion.  You may have your own, to which you are entitled, but this thread is about Dom.  Perhaps there will be a goalie thread someday in which we can discuss other goalies.  This would be lovely as there have been other good ones around Dom's level.

In Buffalo that is. And while the Wings are in town.Congrats to Dom. And pretty cool that it will be with the wings, a few of his fellow players can enjoy the experience. I still remember the night the wings announced that they traded for Dom. I yelled, "the Wings just won the cup".
