I could see it being the former but if you were really thinking the latter than you definitely need to buy a lotto ticket or something!

Wow, if Hasek comes out of retirement I'll be shocked!!
He's trying to.....if some ape***t nuts GM bites, I'll be shocked.

Rick I started to think what a mistake. Then I saw him play. Then it turned to what a f*ing joke. As I watched, I saw the gambles and wandering and saw he'd be hurt a lot from contact, but then I noticed how he went down and scrambled and thought he'd be a surgery case. THEN I saw him start to bulk up and it was a sure thing. His joints would go to Hades. I posted as much, but that, I believe, is what my take on him was. Nothing psychic. Just a person who had two clacking purple knees in college from the game (and kneecaps that would gross you out if I moved them around - I got them much better without professional therapy or surgery. Hope to have my ankle move freely full motion sooner or later from a later injury, though age hinders that one).

I once called him The Chosen One, and someone one upped it with The Golden Child and he got that nickname. I don't take any credit but **** I can't believe I missed that one - it stuck a lot easier and was totally better.

Nowadays I feel bad for him since he's matured FOR REAL since his marriage. Before that I think he was a total fraud, but hey, I feel bad for the lop.
