Hasek was suffering from a groin pull(I think or some such ailment) during the Red Wings Stanley cup run. He subsequently had surgery and had a couple of years to recover. The point being that it appears his lackluster performance was more due to the injury then to age. He has been nothing short of amazing, although every game is punctuated with a head scratching "Hasekess" moment.
i'm also a detroit fan, and i also Don't think detroit won in spite of him. i've never even heard any detroit fan (or anyone else) say they did. W T F? he wasn't terrible at all. that's why holland re-signed him for 8m after already signing joseph for 8m.
didn't hasek set the record for playoff shutouts that yr?
many detroit fans think hasek should have got smythe. (i say yzerman, but happy w/ lidstrom)
i didn't think he was as good w/ detroit as he was w/ buffalo, but who ever was that good?
i haven't been able to see any ottawa games this yr, but i'm really glad he's playing up to his standards.
we can now see how great ottawa is w/ a goalie as good as the rest as the team.
Yeah man that's crazy. Hasek was one of the main reasons detroit won the cup. Just some crazy talk from a bitter wings fan. Hasek is the best goalie ever to play the game. Just checked his detroit stats. He was 41-15-8 with a 2.17 GAA and .915 sv% with 5 shutouts...my god those numbers are terrible!!!
I'm a Red Wings fan, and when Dom Hasek was in Detroit, I hated him. He was terrible, clearly on the downside of his career, and when they won the Cup they won it in spite of him, not because of him.
Lots of hype about him this year, but ... How do you guys like him?
i'm starting to wonder if there are seriously so many people that havent ever seen hasek play .this board is full of people not aknoledging ( sorry german ^^ ) hasek and i am sick off it
the guys is goaltending god number 1 !!!!!!
u cant deny nagano ,the buffalo times ,6 vezinas !!!!! stanley cup with DET
the word for describing hasek still has to be invented
i can only say this
on level of spectacularety and sick *** saves HASEK IS UNTOPPABLE BY NOBODY !!!
and with the age he has now the level of play hes performing is incredible
