Ok me as a habs fan I used to hate this guy as he single handedly eliminated my habs in 98 playoffs and almost always we couldnt score on this guy. He really played incredible in every single game against MTL. Anyways since he left Buffalo and I am not really aware of why he left or traded and I heard there's some controversy behind it and stuff... anyways do you consider him the best goalie of all time? I sure do even as a habs fan... I mean this guy won the Hart trophy twice as a goalie! Not to mention 6 Vezina trophies in 7 years from 93-94 until 2000-01. He lead the Sabres to the finals only to lose after an illegal goal from Hull in the crease (Brings back bad memorie heh?) So what do you guys think of him?
To me he was like the best goalie ever...UNTILLLLLLL....
he pulled his groin against the Panthers in the 99-00 season and switched from Bauer to those Louisville? pads. Aside from that he's a pretty big a%%, not a crowd pleaser personality-wise.
There's definitely a case to be made for Hasek. The work "Hasekian" was created to define his acrobatic, stop-the puck-with-my-head methods of goaltending. In terms which you can relate to as a Hab fan, I don't think that Patrick Roy could have taken that Sabres team to the Cup finals in '99.
