Hasek looking to return...again

Quote:
Czech hockey legend Dominik Hasek may soon be able to confirm the old "third time's a charm" axiom.

The forty-three year old goalie retired in June after helping the NHL's Detroit Red Wings capture the Stanley Cup. "My body is still ready, but I lack motivation," Hasek told reporters in Detroit at the time.

Once back in Prague, however, he succumbed to second thoughts.

Make that third thoughts: In the summer of 1999 he summoned TV crews to a Prague news conference where the great Czech goalie announced he was preparing for his last NHL campaign. Hasek said his decision was final and that he called the conference in order to avoid speculation throughout the season. But he missed a number of games due to a groin injury, so he continued to play...

He insists, though, that another season on the NHL circuit is out of the question. "I don't want to talk about it at the moment," he explains. "It's clear, however, that I wouldn't go to the NHL. If I were to return, I would play with a Czech team."
If he wants to play at home let him.

I think his time has run up in the NHL. Although I would not be suprised to see him picked up back home.

It would be good for him to still play, but at home. I can't imagine him playing in the NHL anymore.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if Tampa Bay tossed an offer his way.....

With the shorter season and lower shot counts, no reason he couldn't play there for at least a couple more years. Go for it, I say. If you love it, play as long as you can, once it's too late, it's too late.
