One of the most underrated, loyal, and down-to-earth guys around, and someone who epitomized what it meant to be a Red Wing. Thanks for everything Ozzie!

As much as anyone ever was, Chris Osgood is The Consummate Red Wing. Anyone that can remember all the time he put in with this organization, through the highs and lows, especially winning Cups, and especially after being dumped and coming back undeterred and winning another, knows what this guy means to the Winged Wheel. Farewell and bon voyage, old buddy.

It sucks to see him retire, but I don't blame him for wanting to move on.

so he's retiring now?

what a pleasant surprise to start the morning. definitely put a spring in my step. the sun's shining a bit brighter, the birds chirping a bit louder.

what a great day.


We'll all say the same thing the day you stop posting here.

You can be happy the organization is moving on with perhaps a healthier option, if that is indeed what is truly happening, without being a d**khead.


#2199414 Thank You Chris Osgood!

Ozzie! Ozzie! Ozzie!

Thanks for scoring a goal, Thanks for every single one of those 401 wins, thanks for hoisting 2 stanley cups and backing vernon for another, thanks for fighting Roy, thanks for holding strong and nearly getting a 4th cup and probably a Conn Smythe. Great Career, you always made watching games as a little kid that much more exciting.


#2199366 Thank You Chris Osgood!

Thankyou Ozzie

For kicking Roy's ass
For making it look so easy in 2008
For putting a worn-out, broken-down, beaten-up team on your back and taking them *this* close to another cup in 2009.

Such a shame that the last 2 years ended up the way they did but after 400 wins and 3 cups I don't think you can complain.


#2198966 Things you're hoping to see more of this season.

Posted by dirtydangles on 17 July 2011 - 08:15 PM

hope solo and alex morgan... just kidding... wrong sport.

Z putting up 30+ goals while reaching 90 points - its been a couple seasons

Dats being dats

Fil over 60 points

Howard with .930+ sv%

Hudler putting up decent points - trade deadline move as a result

Kronwalling

Ericsson playing like a 3mil player

Brendan Smith break in for a stretch

Kindl establish himself - start looking like a 2nd pairing guy.

Top 5 d in the nhl.

Franzen playing 75+ games

Further than the 2nd round of the playoffs.

Lids in top form still, and a + player this year so people get off his back.

Less injuries.

More fights.

Not spotting 3 games in a playoff series to the other team.

The Stanley Cup.


#2197662 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

Posted by Austrianwing on 10 July 2011 - 03:39 AM

I'll go on record to say that Commodore 64 is just straight up funny, and I say why the hell not? The article above seems really uptight to me. What the hell is wrong with a little fun? Anyone remember this one?

Having a few laughs does not equal not taking the franchise seriously, :rolleyes:

ironic that the common consensus on LGRW.COM would be that datsyuk is better then ovechkin... seems like the homerism is overpowering the logic.
..............................................................
i just dont think a poll of hfboards or nhl would show people unanimously agreeing that datsyuk is better then ovie.


I agree with you that a lot of us Wings fans are going to be a little bias, and pick our main man Pavel.... But I don't think the stats that you are throwing at us are the only one's that matter... Sure, goals and assists are damn important but that's not what Datsyuk is all about, he brings so much more to the table in my opinion....

You pointed out many stats where Ovechkin was dominant over Datsyuk but there are also many where Datsyuk is dominant over Ovechkin... here is just one stat that I'd like to throw out there... Takeaways / Giveaways

Pavel Datsyuk

2006-07 (107 / 86 = +21)
2007-08 (144 / 68 = +76)
2008-09 (89 / 50 = +39)
2009-10 (132 / 73 = +59)
2010-11 (71 / 38 = +33)

Total Past 5 years = +228

Alex Ovechkin

2006-07 (67 / 95 = -28)
2007-08 (68 / 93 = -25)
2008-09 (60 / 107 = -47)
2009-10 (66 / 76 = -10)
2010-11 (48 / 59 = -11)

Total Past 5 years = -121

Something else that needs to be taken in account is the fact that Pavel can and does play in ALL situations... Datsyuk plays even strength, power-play, penalty kill, and the last minute of every game when his team is up OR down a goal, whereas Ovechkin plays even strength, power-play and when his team is down a goal (basically just in offensive situations)

Ovechkin is a much more of an explosive offensive threat but Datsuk is much, much better over 200 feet of the ice and I'd take a player like Pav over Ovi any day...

I don't care if the Wings ever make the playoffs again, as long as he wears that number.
