Hasek wanted to win (he still does at age 47). At the time he was the only top 50 player on the Sabres. It was obvious that the Rigas family was not going to spend the money to win (looking back.... no s### Sherlock), so Dom wanted to end his career with a winner (which he did). I have no problems with his decision. I rank him as one of the two best players to ever have worn a Sabres jersey. He still donates his time and money to his Hasek's for heroes charity here in Buffalo.

For anyone to side for the Rigases over him has some explaining to do.

I understand the feelings of Buffalo fans who are sensitive about rejection and criticism (hell, I am one..ever since I went to my first Sabre's game in 1970), but Hasek belongs in the rafters this year.
