Best Answer

This is a trick question.

When the team started in 1926 they weren't the Red Wings, they were the Cougars and their starting goalie was Hap Holmes.

In 1930 they changed their name for a couple of years to the Falcons with Dolly Dolson in goal.

In 1932, they settled on the Red Wings as their title and the goalie was John Ross Roach.

Hope that answered the question... and maybe spurred a couple more!

Detroit's starting goalie is Chris Osgood (#30). Osgood was considered a backup to Dominick Hasek (retired) in the 2007-08 season but won the starting roll during the playoffs. Osgood's backup this year is Ty Conklin (#29). Conklin was a backup on the Pittsburgh Penguin's bench last season. He signed with the Wings as a free agent in July 2008.
