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.
