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!
Nobody will ever be Dominik Hasek. Hasek also won a gold medal BY HIMSELF. That was the most impressive run by a goalie in the history of hockey. Hasek is a goalie god while Hank is just a goalie superstar. That being said, Hank carries this team and while he is GREAT, by no means does he have what it takes to win a gold medal or Stanley Cup literally by himself like Hasek did. Nobody will ever do what Hasek did again.
