MARTY TURCO WILL NEVER BE A RED WING


#2016508 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by wally42 on 18 July 2010 - 12:35 PM



And yes, #30 will be raised. Ozzie was gone for a few seasons and nobody else was allowed to wear it. Larry Aurie's #6 is 'recognized' and so is Vladimir Konstantinov's '16' as far as numbers which cannot be worn. But Osgood played almost his entire career as a Wing, backstopped the team to two Cups and three Finals, owns almost every Wings goaltending record, and when most hockey fans nowadays think of "Detroit goaltending" the first guy to pop up in their heads is Chris Osgood. Kind of like Grant Fuhr (EDM), Dominik Hasek (BUF), Patrick Roy (MTL, COL), Olaf Kolzig (WSH).



Seriously? You can't have every number up on a banner, unless you want players to start wearing 3 digits on their jerseys...

I can't wait to see Avery and Boogard together this year on the Rangers. I'm sure I'll get some s*** for saying that.
