Does this mean we won’t have to hear any more ‘Osgood should be in the HOF’ arguments?

The chances of linking this Puck Daddy post were already high with a nice “Big Lebowski” reference but the Osgood as swiss cheese card reminded me of a point I wanted to make. Not a revolutionary point, but nonetheless:

As the Detroit Red Wings dominated the hockey world last year, the Chris Osgood is a Hall of Famer arguments made some kind of impact on the blog-consciousness. Out of the respect to those bloggers and because of my weak memory combined with sudden google-adverse-ness let’s just paraphrase their arguments: “Osgood won three Stanley Cups. Look at all those wins! (becomes distracted when someone pulls out their shiny key chain)”

Here’s a pretty easy way to weed out potential HOF candidates: if the guy perpetually loses his starting goaltender job, he’s not a Hall of Famer. If Brodeur is a Fraud, then Osgood is the luckiest goalie on the face of the earth. Please, please PLEASE stop hurting your credibility with such an inane discussion.

    Brodeur is a Fraud also disagreed with the surprising Osgood-for-HOF argument. He listed two links but only one is still available online:http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index.ssf/2008/06/red_wings_osgood_has_look_of_h.htmlAnd here’s BiaF’s take:http://brodeurisafraud.blogspot.com/2008/06/no-to-hhof-for-chris-osaverage.html
