Quote of the day

Last 60 minutes is the worst hockey I've played in my life. I have nothing to say about it. It's terrible. I feel very bad about myself.
I think we may have seen the end of the Dominator in the postseason after last night in Nashville.

He's 43 years old — this might be the end of the line.

Before the playoffs, Steve Sullivan said in a radio interview that he thought that for the Preds to have success in the playoffs against Detroit, they would have to see Chris Osgood. I have to say at the time i thought that was a long shot, and though i agreed, it didn't lift my spirits much.

Now i have to say that most Preds fans feel (with all respect to The Dominator's history and the great team Detroit has) that we have them right where we want them.

Game 5 is going to be crazy.

1) Credit to Trotz and the Preds for making this a series. Most of us didn't even think the preds would make the playoffs let alone give the President's Trophy winners all they can handle and more!

About time, good lord Hasek is terrible.

I seem to remember being laughed at when I said Hasek was too old and that goaltending was a liability for Detroit when James picked the Wings to win the cup. I'm not going to say I told you so, but...

The series is 2-2 big guy, and Osgood was in the all-star game this year.

I fully expect them to advance.

i think everyone still fully expects the wings to advance, but they are looking flawed against a team they were supposed to roll over.

People underestimated Nashville all year. They're well coached and they work harder than maybe any other team in the league; I wouldn't pin this all on Detroit — this was always going to be a six-plus game series.

They need to stop playing Hartigan so much too. Put Abdelkader or Downey in. jeez.

People have been underestimating Nashville for the past 5 years.

I've wanted Osgood to be in goal since before Game 1. I think that he's a slightly better goalie than Hasek at this point, and I think that the team also plays better in front of him. Most importantly, I just like Osgood, and like rooting for him, and I can't say that same about the Undominator.

"That was so easy I shouldn't get credit for a shutout"
Dom, Jan. 2006 after blanking the Habs facing just 12 shots.
Hey Hey Hockeytown.
How's it feel Mr. Washed Up?
You're too old for the game and you will cost the Wings the Cup.
I guess the Wings problem is allowing teams more than 5 shots a game. Dom isn't up to handling that anymore.
I guess he'll just come up with one of his "groin injuries" again.
Good riddance quitter....see ya loser.

Lots of you need to relax. He's by far NOT one of the most temperamental goalies. At least he didn't put it up his nose like Grant Fuhr or up his team's shoop like Emery. Hasek's career speaks for itself. The fact that a respected organization like the Wings gave him the reigns says something as well *although the goalie market was weak at the time*. Give him some respect, a bow, a good career and make room for Osgood. He's bowing out gracefully. Give him a break. Lots of players would have blamed their teammates.

Even as anonymous comments go, this one's a bit rich. Hasek is a Stanley Cup champion, an Olympic champion, a two-time Hart Trophy winner, a six-time Vezina Trophy winner, who holds the NHL career and single season records for Sv%. This year at the tender age of 43 he won yet another Jennings Trophy for contributing to the best team GAA in the league, and also won yet another President's Trophy. That's an awful lot of winning for a loser, wouldn't you say?

He's also honest enough to blame himself when things go wrong and not point fingers. Unlike you, "Anonymous".
