Nah, I prefer just judging the on the positive accomplishments that they achieved for our team.
Hasek for getting injured in the olympics which resulted in him bailing on us for the Playoffs souring management on him and leading to us sign Gerber who made the highest scoring team in the league suck so much by giving up the weakest goals at the worst times which yeilded us the ability to trade up to the 15th pick and draft a Norris winning defenceman.

Clearly Hasek puts in a strong case on both ends of the spectrum; Negative -> his fault we signed Gerber. Positive -> indirectly his fault we drafted Karlsson.

And that's not even taking into account the impact his actual play had, and his not playing had on the season/playoffs when he was with the team.
