I can agree with that, Osgood's lows were not as low as Vernon or Richter. However, Osgood usually stays pretty even keel. That's not a bad thing, but it isn't a good thing considering he wasn't the type to carry a team. If you wanted a goalie that was likely to NOT screw up, he was your man. If you wanted a goalie that would elevate the team above their standard and come through in the clutch with some legendary saves you wouldn't pick him. You would pick Richter or Vernon because they both had the ability to shine very bright.
