But July 1st, Hasek goes on the open market, and you can gaurentee there are other teams who would like to sign him. So its in ottawas best interest to get him locked up NOW.
Exactly. Why would the Wings let Hasek talk to other teams? Just because they are in a charitable mood? Of course not. If they really wanted to be nice they would let Thomas and Hull talk to other teams as well. But they haven't. I don't expect much. A late round draft pick perhaps.

Basically what the Senators are allowing themselves to do is getting first crack at signing Hasek. And maybe if a deal can be done, they could maybe move Lalime for something at the draft.
