#1977546 Don't blame Howard.. blame Babcock

Detroit Red Wings' goalie situation tied to Mike Babcock

I totally agree.
Babcock eliminated the term 'backup'
Now, there is none.

Thanks Mike.

Babcock dug his grave some time ago.

This is not about Howard or Osgood. It's not about which goaltender we like or who we prefer in goal.
This is about a coach who rendered his backup goaltender virtually useless by keeping him on the bench for an unreasonable amount of games.
And that's just poor coaching in my opinion.

#1943225 Enough of the X posts for a victory threads...

There were more than 1000 posts in the thread for game 1 and we lost.
So it didn't work (big suprise...).

So let's drop it, we're not 5 anymore.

Why is Mike Babcock not playing Chris Osgood on the second game of a back-to-back ?

This is flatout humiliating for a goaltender of Ozzie's caliber. What is he thinking ?
Babcock is showing once more that he's mediocre at best when it comes to the 'human' side of coaching.
Why would consciously render you second goaltender useless by sitting him thisf****** long ?????
This will backfire someday..

Besides that, I think.. KNOW that Chris Osgood has some wins in him.
Don't treat him like there's sitting some snot nosed college goaltender on the bench.

Well for starters I am agreeing that the Wings can't fall back to Osgood at this point.

Why not ?

Everybody keeps saying that, but given the fact that his last start was mid-January, we'll never know !
And it's not like Jimmy Howard is playing lights out at the moment..

#1911363 Wow... this forum feels... awkward

Though it does crack me up that Mindfly's reputation is already "poor". :yowza:

He's a troubled young man..

#1911362 Another goalie thread...

I don't think Kimmy played that good / confident since the OG.
Why not give Chris Osgood a game ?

And why do some people keep talking about " a risk " when it comes to Ozzie.
The man is able of winning some games, have we forgotten that ?
And please stop talking about his form or achievements, because his last full game was somewhere in december.

Whatever the outcome of this season is, Babcock has handled this poorly.
