Including Ozzie. On that breakaway goal he had such terrible position that you could tell just by the camera angels. I still don't and never will buy in that he was the Conn Smythe worthy during that run.
Are you kidding me? So we should focus on the few isolated mistakes as opposed to the majority of his play which was nothing short of outstanding? He in many ways carried the team through the playoffs as we battled injuries throughout to our biggest stars. Even Lidstrom missed games! There was no way in hell anyone was going to win the Conn Smythe over him that year. Zetterberg finished the playoffs strong but was not a force throughout; and he was the only one close. Osgood's strong, consistent play was the highlight of that run. He had a great run in '08, better as far as stats are concerned I believe, but there's no question that he was a better overall goalie and a much bigger part of our success on the '09 run. It's a shame we couldn't pull it all off. Then we'd have another Cup and one less stupid argument.
