Is Hasek an option?

The more I think about it, its not the worst move we could make. With his age and recent past, he's not going to command a huge salary, and would probably be cheaper than Giguere or any of the other names mentioned as possibilites, and we wouldn't have to give anything up to get him. We can re-sign Ozzie cheaply, and they could really split time in the regular season to ensure Dom is healthy to start the playoffs, and if he did get hurt, you at least have a viable back up in Ozzie.

I know he didn't leave on the best of terms, but if Stevie and some of the other veterans sign off on it, I don't see that being a huge problem.

Obvisouly its risky, but as a 1-2 stop gap before Howard is ready is it really any worse than Giguere or Nabokov or Huet?

Better make sure we have a starter as the backup as well if you want Hasek.

The man has played played basically 50 games in the past 4 years, he CANNOT be counted on to last an entire season and unless we're going to allow him to only play every 3 or 4 games so he doesn't get injured for the rest of the season it isn't an option.

If Holland re-signed Hasek, it would be the worst move he's ever made.

Hasek has already burned a few bridges in town, not to mention he would probably suffer another injury and be forced to miss the playoffs. That guy's ego is as bad as Roy's, but I would trust a rusty Roy more than I would Hasek at this point.

I'd accept Cujo back in Detroit...he wasn't the reason the Wings lost those two seasons. Hasek on the other hand, is too much of a risk because of his health. Then again, the Wings picked him up a few years ago knowing his injury problems from before and he won them a cup. I have no idea who is the best option for them at this point.

Hhmmm... let me think about that. 41 year old goalie with a wonky groin and a flair for drama on and off the ice, with a cargohold of baggage with DTW tags... NO!

Unless he can some how get groin replacement surgery i'll say no thanks. His groins are like dried up rubber band, ready to snap at a moments notice. Besides we dont need another circus in town, we have the Lions.

Maybe if he signs for the minimum with no performance bonuses. Otherwise, hell with him.

LOL, kira. Isn't that the truth, though?

Give me someone between the pipes that can be counted on.

Ignore it. We're going to see stuff like this until the wings either make a move or start the season with a kid backing up Oz.

It's been updated and says the Wings might be interested in Esche as well.

Eklund has said the Wings are interested in every single goalie on the market over the course of the off-season. He's just throwing more **** on the wall and hoping it sticks.

Well at least it's not as bad as the Zetterberg/Kronwall to Toronto rumours we heard all last summer.

You have to understand. I was on my first cup of coffee when I saw your thread. Now that I'm on my fourth, I see the "e4"...
