Hasek making a Comeback!?

Surprised there is no thread on it.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=598607

Obviously I doubt he will be in the NHL if he does plan on coming back, he might just go to a league in Europe but the dude is 47 and it looks like he is in great shape!

It be pretty cool to see him return to the NHL as a backup.

I'd definitely cheer for him if he can make it back into the NHL. One of the best goalie's ever, and a very appropriate first name.

Dude is in shape and I'm sure he could still play. Why not?

He lead the KHL in shutouts last year, put up overall solid stats and I believe he was considered a solid starter (actually, think he might even have made their ASG?). Played more games than all but one KHL goalie last year too, so he clearly is still in great shape despite his age (54 games season, Hasek played 46 games). Wouldn't at all be surprised if he could secure at least a backup job in the NHL next year, though I'd think him playing in Europe would be more likely.

I'd sign him. Better option than Budaj for backup.

The Devils, having decided that the Marty/Hedberg tandem just wasn't old enough, plan to sign Hasek.

Best goalie ever to wear a Sens uniform.

Man, I missed those days. Far too few games in it unfortunately.

Still the best goalie the Sens have ever had by a large margin. Even at 50 I'd welcome him back.*


*unless it's an Olympic year and unless we had no experienced backup.

This just reminded me that Rob Ray played for the Sens. It's been a long day and I thought that was funny.

Who cares how you stop the puck so long as you do it? I can see saying he was lucky if he did it for one year, but SIX Vezinas is NOT luck. That's like saying Lidstrom was just lucky.

I wasn't gonna comment, but yeah, no kidding. I watched him closely in Ottawa, always waiting for the 'luck' to run out. It didn't (except for the blasted Olympics). Best goaltender I've ever seen - and I've seen some dandys.

Hasek's the only tender in the history of the modern NHL to be elite in his 40s. If any can make a comeback at his age, it's him.

He's the greatest goalie of all time. When you look at his performance, it's pretty hard not to come to that conclusion.

And obviously Ovechkin is overrated. He shoots a lot, and 80% of his goals are pure luck.

Even if there are an infinite number of parallell universes, you'll never get get 6 Vezinas due to "luck".

The greatest goalie of all time. I'd hate to see him come back and have a Joseph or Belfour-like final year, but if he can still play, someone will take a chance on him.
