I know, I rmemeber when I had one of those candy bar cell phones also
True story: when I was a young lass, I worked in a residential treatment center for adjudicated teenage sex offenders (boys). I also had a seriously out-of-date brick cell phone, which I was made fun of by one of the group members by lifting *an entire park bench* to his ear and pretending to talk into it. I thought I was going to wet my pants I was laughing so hard.
I just don't get it, if the NHL(PA) and all others do hate the shootout so much either get rid of it or if for whatever reason they don't want to do that let it be the way it always was and hopefully will always be.
This 3:3 is just turning this thing into another gimmick,
like we've needed more gimmicks in a our game, which is more and more becoming something it shouldn't be.
He's just not as great as you think he is ... If he played his whole career in nyi and slt he would of won nothing ... Look back at the wings lineups during those glory years ... Truly remarkable stuff , never needed a superstar goalie to win with that lineup
Now imagine if we had hasek in nets as well from 93-05 how many cups we'd have
What really gets me is how people are praising osgood so much and yet s***ting on federov and he's the one who's had the way better career in detroit , only cause he chased some money along the way
Those guys you mentioned were also the best goalies of there time and won vezina's and conn smythe's, in nets for many cups
Brodeur roy hasek and others were miles away better than osgood
But what you said to discredit Osgood is also true of those other guys. If you stuck Sawchuck, Fuhr, Plante, or Smith on crappy teams, instead of dynasty teams, they wouldn't have been great either. They were all system goalies. But nobody holds it against them.
Osgood put up comparable, or better, career numbers than the guys I just mentioned. He did it on a really good team. They did it on even better teams. But only Osgood gets criticized for it.
