Chris Osgood has a chance for win #400 tonight as the Wings face Dallas. It is somewhat well known just how impressive it is to get 1000 points in a career. But how impressive is it for a goalie to get 400 wins?
Well 400 wins puts Osgood at #10 all-time in the NHL. He's ahead of Domink Hasek, Roberto Luongo, John Vanbiesbrouck, Mike Vernon, Gump Worsley, Bernie Parent, Ken Dryden, Harry Lumley, Nikolai Khabibulin, Olaf Kolzig, Marty Turco, Mike Richter, Ron Hextall and Felix Potvin among others.
To get in the top 10, it only took Osgood 737 games. Of the top 30 leaders in goalie wins, Chris Osgood has the second highest winning percentage of all time (only behind Brodeur).
Every eligible player ahead of him is in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Of the 27 goaltenders in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Osgood has more wins then 21 of them.
He's had a winning record every single season in the league-including two years with the Islanders.
Osgood is 8th all time in playoffs wins with a ridiculous goals against average of 2.09.
400 wins is roughly equivalent to 1600 points in the NHL. So yeah, I'd say 400 a big deal.
Osgood, show your stuff tonight against Dallas. Pick up #400 at home. You deserve it.
