Helene doesn’t say how she knows, but we assume she got a text from a BFF and hence…
The Red Wings have scheduled a conference call for Tuesday where they are expected to announce goaltender Chris Osgood will be back for another season.
If she’s right, we’re to assume Osgood is completely healthy. No ill effects from the groin or whatever else has ailed him for the past two seasons.
Right? Sentimentality’s a wicked drug.
For the record, I’m against this. Nothing about Osgood the last two seasons gives us any indication that this is a smart move. The minute Osgood says he’s coming back, the best backup on the market (to include him) is gone and this time for good. Ty Conklin should have been signed two weeks ago.
Could St. James be wrong? Sure. But that would mean some seriously risky speculation on her part. Too risky for our conservative Diggers. Also, a conference call? Chris Osgood is not going to retire via conference call.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
