In Topic: Hossa to Sign Soon?

i feel ultimately all of this crazy who stays who goes bizz is all too soon to tell. just think about last year, and think about how much has changed. this time last year no one knew if osgood or hasek was going to be the man come playoff time, and osgoods play last post season is a huge reason for his signing. also, i don't believe a soul had a clue this time last year that franzen would put up the monster numbers he did. Then you got stuarts great play for us and all the other stand outs and it really made a difference when it came down to the off season. What if franzen gets healthy and dominates again this playoffs??? what if hossa chokes randomly???? what if filp redeems him self with some playoff heroism, or anyone else like huds or sammy??? A big factor i haven't heard anyone mention is a goaltending for next year. What if conklin dominates in the playoffs and oz never returns to form?? do you let conks go still??? you never know.

IMO, i feel we all need to just be grateful we can watch these guys for the rest of the year, see how this ridiculous roller coaster plays out and work from there.

it is simple, as others have said, just. play. CONKLIN. You gotta rotate them still at this point, but the games should be picked a little more wisely. osgood has not had one game this season that earned him a game as big as this one was, and in my opinion conklin has done more than enough to deserve to play. Now i do have faith in babcock, and i would not be surprised if this game was a test to see ozzie in a playoff level game this season. The sad thing is he failed. I do not like osgood, but still we can't burn him at the stake, he is struggling and conklin should take a few consecutive games at the very least to not only give him his props, but to let oz get some work in on his game and get his head straight. This is not osgood of last season, i agree with harolds point about how he has seemed to be overplaying the puck as of late. i feel it is a desperation sign of ozzie losing confidence and him trying to find what will get him back on track. Thats fine and dandy but he can do that in practice and let conklin tend the crease for a while.

i would like to make this post a apology to osgood and all his supporters who defended him a couple nights ago, i have been proved completely wrong by osgood tonite and i can not believe how much non of this game was his fault.

the red wings should of scored at LEAST 7 goals anyway, every other night he plays too.

all 6 goals were flukes, mistakes, and the defense fault.

and conklin is just really lucky

conklin is no where near the starter ozzie is and this season has proven nothing in conks favor. current playing abillity means nothing and all that matters is past performances. if you think oz has done anything less than amazing your nothing but trolls or don't know hockey. go wings! goal.gif
