I can't believe we traded aways someone who is healthy and can actually suit up and play, considering the fact that we're without Dats, Z and Helm for the rest of this season and the playoffs, assuming we make it (which I don't assume)
OK, here's a fact: I am far too attached to Red Wings, pretty much all of them. I boo-hoo'ed just now when I saw this on Facebook. Fed's dad died this morning in Russia.
The picture just killed me... Viktor Fedorov with little Sergei and baby Fedor. So much for my mascara... rest in peace, Papa.
Count me in, BoS. I cried over the GDT. Beautiful job, Mikey...
I am sure the ceremony will be awesome, and beyond well-deserved. I adored Nick as did we all, and miss him every single game. I do hope we don't suffer the dreaded pre-game ceremony curse and consequently suck tonight. I am hoping the guys will be anxious to not poop on Nick's special night, and win this one for the Perfect Human.
Pretty much all hockey players have the same lines. "We just have to play our game..." Ozzie was far more eloquent and funny as a player because there was no pressure to be coherent in interviews. Now he's on the hot seat to make cogent observations and be informative. Much harder than it looks, no doubt.
Ozzie will be OK. But he will never, ever be another Mickey Redmond.

I would say yes, he gets a medal. The back up goalie got one for the Czechs in 1998, and never even sniffed the ice for one second during the entire tournament. I think if you're on the team, you get a medal.
Between the crappy beds in the Olympic village, to sitting on how many flights, I can see why his back flared up.
