What about Hasek who played on less than mediocre Buffalo teams at best, was bombarded on a nighly basis , won about 5 or 6 Vezina trophies in a row, and carried Buffalo on his back to the SCF vs Dallas?
Look, I love what Hank has given us over 8 years but face facts, he ain't no Hasek!
As it relates to Hank, I sometimes think it's a case of overhyping the best player on a lousy team!
I can't recall anyone saying Hank is even close to the best goalie ever. Hank is the best right now, but obviously should not be compared to Hasek.
However, not many goalies in the history of hockey could have won that game for the rangers.
