#2199593 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by Ozzie30 on 19 July 2011 - 07:02 PM

<= Grown man crying.

Just one tear.

#2199590 Thank You Chris Osgood!

Posted by Ozzie30 on 19 July 2011 - 06:57 PM

Thank you for all the memories Ozzie.
You were my first hockey hero growing up and although i'm an adult, I still look up to you. As usual, you put the team before yourself and chose to end your HHOF career at a time that was not only appropriate for you, but most appropriate for the Detroit Red Wings. I'm not sure what the future holds for you, but know you are a Red Wing for life. I will make sure my kids know of the Great Wizard of Oz, how you could bring the Joe to a roar with every save, and how you knocked that POS Roy ON HIS ASS!
Enjoy your retirement Ozzie, you deserve it!

Edit: reading my post brings a tear to my eye. We will miss you Ozzie.

#2196225 "We feel good with the people we have," Holland said

Reasons i'm optimistic:
I like the projected edge our D can now bring. With the exception of Lidstrom, every defensman is capable and likely to punish you at every opportunity.
The offense was 2nd last season, I don't see that big a drop off next year provided our new coaching staff can revamp the system we've been using since Bowman.
I do hope and expect to see Howard feed off his playoff performance and improve his regular season numbers.

Why no sticky? This is good news.

Try harder.

#2193365 Jackets sign Wisniewski: 6-years $33-million ($5.5m/yr)

Posted by Ozzie30 on 01 July 2011 - 10:10 AM

Officially concerned now... I wanted Wisniewski. Seems a fair price compared to E's contract.

You could pay me 2 million to tape sticks and it would be more fair than E.

#2192632 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by Ozzie30 on 30 June 2011 - 05:22 PM

I'm still shocked Tallon didn't send a pick to Omsk for Jagr's rights :ph34r:

Snow tried and was told he's an idiot.

At least half of that statement is true.

#2190641 Lets think COMPLETELY outside of the box for one minute...

Posted by Ozzie30 on 27 June 2011 - 11:18 PM

Is that where we're keeping the drugs now? Outside of the box?

Seriously though, make it happen Kenny.

#2185920 Congrats to Timmy Thomas

Posted by Ozzie30 on 15 June 2011 - 11:17 PM

Where did this guy come from? Totally off the radar until a few years ago. As dominate as Roy and Hasek were in their day. Let's hope he can put a few more years in and collect some more hardware.

TSN voting is never fair.

#2174801 Hey, it could be worse...

We could be Toronto.

EDIT: Geez. Fingers...too fat...for iPhone.

Well he is a free agent. I'm not sure whether I want him to return die or not.


Ericsson: I loathe you.

Edit: okay, that is harsh, but I do loathe him.
