The Detroit Red Wings have signed goalkeeper Chris Osgood to a one-year contract.
Osgood was originally drafted by the Wings in the 1991 entry draft, and spent 8 seasons in Detroit, winning the Cup twice. He's played solidly for the Islanders and the Blues since then, but did not play at all during the lockout.
I'm guessing that the Wings have no intention of re-signing UFA CuJo, and will use Osgood as the every day goalie and Manny Legace (who is already under contract) as a respectable backup.
What will become of CuJo? Hello, Tampa Bay Lightning! As a Canes fan, I certainly hope not, but they've just lost Khabibulin, so they need a #1 netminder.
