Williams

From what I understand all those players are dead weight that Osgood is carrying. Bunch of floaters!

So in the end I say with great humility, you're right, Osgood is carrying the Redwings. What was I thinking!?

Have you thought about rooting for the Redwings instead of the Habs?? You seem to like their team better then the Canadiens.


When did I ever say that Ozgood is carrying the Wings?

Yeah, Ozzie has had tremendous talent in front of him - not exactly his fault!

I have never said or implied that Ozgood was another Patrick Roy
- all I said was that Ozgood was a good enough goalie to win multiple Cups - Hell, Gainey's Montreal teams can't even win multiple series (even over a 6+ year stretch)!

I have seen great teams not get very far in the playoffs because they lacked good - or even adequate - goaltending......not so Detroit.

Ozgood may not be as good as Roy or Brodeur - but he has proven to be better than any thing Habs currently have in goal!

And no - I'm a lifelong Habs fan - I just appreciate good hockey - and wish the Hbas could be half as consistant as the Wings at winning!
