TDSS Roundtable: Picking Our Detroit Red Wings All-Time Lineups

The challenge was simple: Build an all-time Detroit Red Wings starting lineup … on a strict budget. The Detroit Free Press issued the task on Twitter (a few days after BallisLife.com asked hoops fans to craft a five-man roster). The Freep set a cap of $18, then assigned a salary of between $1 and $5 to Wings legends at each position. Fans: Construct your all-time #RedWings starting...

Blackhawks Version Of Chris Osgood?

I've stated before that I'm not the biggest Corey Crawford fan in the world. I've said in the past, he's not an elite goalie, but your standard reliable, good starting goalie. All the Hawks need Crawford to do is make the saves he's supposed to, and allow the offense and shot blocking defense to take care of the rest. Tonight however, Corey Crawford deserves...

Are goalie fights a thing of the past?

Apparently, after Philadelphia Flyer's goalie Ray Emery fought Washington Capital’s goalie Braden Holtby last Friday night in Philadelphia, goalies fights could now be a thing of the past. You have got to be kidding me?!? This is what happens when we have an incident and then we have an over reaction. So, when Patrick Roy fought Chris Osgood, no one seemed to care. ...

Panthers’ Tim Thomas unveils worst goalie helmet ever

I used to believe that no goalie would ever be able to wear a helmet that was worse than former Detroit Red Wings netminder Chris Osgood.  Dominik Hasek was always pretty close, but he at least had some cool paint jobs.  No paint job could possibly save Florida Panthers goalie Tim Thomas’ new helmet.  This thing looks like the love child of a goalie helmet and a player helmet...

Phoenix Coyotes Goalie Mike Smith Scores And Empty Net Goal (VIDEO)

Every goalie dreams about it, but not too many have done it. But you can now add Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith to the list that includes Ron Hextall, Martin Broduer, and Chris Osgood. Leading 4-2 with just under 5 seconds to go against the Detroit Red Wings, Smith launched the puck the full length of the ice and beat the buzzer by a fraction of a second to score his first career...

Full interview: Chris Osgood and Patrick Roy

They were once fierce rivals on the ice, battling in the Western Conference for the right to play for the Stanley Cup. One night in the spring of 1998, former NHL goalies Chris Osgood and Patrick Roy even went skate-to-skate in one of two epic brawls between the Osgood's Red Wings and Roy's Avalanche over two unforgettable seasons. On Thursday in Colorado, Osgood -- now...

Patrick Roy is still quite insane

Anyone wondering if becoming an NHL head coach added a modicum of sanity to Patrick Roy got a pretty resounding answer in the legendary former goaltender’s first game behind the Colorado Avalanche bench. At the conclusion of Colorado’s season-opening 6-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks, Roy got into a shouting/pointing match with Ducks counterpart Bruce Boudreau. And then things really...

A Brief Redwing77 Season Review for the Detroit Red Wings

Well, our season is over.  We lost in 7 games to Chicago in the second round of the playoffs. To be brutally honest (and probably not the most ardent of Red Wings fan), I'm elated they went that far.  Let's face it:  Did ANYONE think the Wings would take the Hawks (who won the Presidents' Trophy this year) to the brink of elimination?  This gets me in trouble...

Setting the Stage for Critical Game 4 in Red Wings-Blackhawks Series

Game 4 is the biggest game of the year for the Detroit Red Wings and it may well tell the story for the rest of the playoffs. If the Red wings can come out and handle the Blackhawks like they did in Games 2 and 3, watch out. A young team with the amount of confidence that could result from taking a 3-1 lead on heavily-favored Chicago would be tough for anyone to beat. Jimmy Howard...

In case you haven’t noticed, Jimmy Howard has become an elite goaltender for the Wings

You know what? Jimmy Howard has become an elite goaltender and the majority of Detroit fans probably haven’t noticed. The goaltending position in Detroit has always been a touchy subject as its right there with being a Tigers closer or Lions starting quarterback. And whether it was Chris Osgood, Dominic Hasek, Curtis Joesph or everyone’s favorite during the early 90′s Tim Cheveldale...

Two NHL alumni games at the Winter Classic promise twice the nostalgia

Franchises get to re-live the moments that made them great, and the host team gets a chance to sell a ton of tickets, most of which are more affordable than...
