Yesterday one of my all-time favorite hockey players and Detroit Red Wing: Chris Osgood announced his retirement. Although I don’t regularly blog about hockey anymore, I took some time away from LA Juice to give thanks and pay tribute to one of the best Detroit Red Wings to ever play the game. Also known as “The Wizard of Oz”, “Ozzie”, ‘Osgreat”, “Opie” “Blizzard of Oz” and the most absurdly and erroneously maligned record holding three time Stanley Cup winning goaltender in all of hockey.
Nobody beats the Wiz. We love ya Ozzie, we were insanely lucky to have you, even when we took you for granted.

No, Oz. We should be thanking you.
