    Hey there Don,

    There's no denying that Osgood has been on the major downhill of his career, and at the time I wrote the article, Bettman didn't announce the possibility of a $2 million salary cap increase, which would be very beneficial to Detroit because they're already at the limit.

    If it does increase, I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit goes after a goaltender who knows that his role is to fill in for Howard when he is feeling the wear and tear of consecutive starts.

    As for Ozzie becoming a goalie coach, I'm not too sure if he'd do that right now. I'm pretty sure that after he retires he'd want to spend time with his family and help his wife with her yoga clinic in Plymouth.

    Do I see Osgood working with the Red Wings? Absolutely. He loves Detroit, and Detroit loves their Ozzie.

    Thanks for writing to me, have a great night, enjoy the Cup Finals, and Go Wings!
