Anyone with Satan in the line-up is dangerous.

I'd agree with that though... now that the financial issues have been resolved with the new ownership, it seems they're in a buying mode now. If Biron can return to the form he had a few years back... they might stand a chance. Buffalo has one of the best goaltending development programs... aside from Montreal and Dallas.

On a side note, it's amazing how many long-term deals have been made recently with the labor strike looming. Some teams like Detroit could be screwed... come 2004.

Anyone see that the Rangers aren't going to hire a coach?

We can keep them in the cellar for a few more seasons.

The Rangers still have Sather, and if I'm not mistaken he is overqualified. Since he's been behind the bench they've been better... but it's still not good enough for playoff positioning. Maybe this year Glen.

wink he's baaaaaack

Hasek made his announcement.


Dominik Hasek has made it official. He's back in the NHL. Tuesday morning, the Detroit Red Wings announced the veteran goaltender has ended his one-year retirement and will return to the Detroit lineup for the 2003-04 season.

You know, I really liked Hasek, but this whole thing has made me lose alot of respect for him. You don't just come out of retirement a mere year later. It's just not right.

Am I the only one who thinks so?

It's like the entire Michael Jordan thing. Just decide then stick with it.


Also, not only has he come out of retirement little more than a year later, what really irks me is that he drags his decisions out so that the fans and media analyze things to death.

Look for a movie called About Hasek in theaters this Fall. Now, will the young (um, okay, nevermind) Cujo allow him to have his office back?

Exactly, LMPA!

This year "energized" him to play again, why didn't he just take a season off? Forsberg did it and it didn't cause nearly the kind of ruckus that Hasek has.

I think he just wants the press--with all the attention goalies have gotten this season (from Giguere's rise to fame to Roy's retirement), poor Dominik just felt left out.

Flexibility. The fact that he refuses to play for anyone but Detroit. Hasek made his bed and now he has to sleep in it...

Don't let your Toronto bias enter into it, I know I've already put enough subjectivity in this issue. As a business decision, it makes sense for the Wings to take Hasek... as he is willing to take a short-term deal. A deal which is more malleable than Curtis' 4 year (including option) contract. That puts the Wings in a more favorable position come the day of CBA expiration.

However, that's not what you said... you asked what was wrong with him coming out of retirement? Frankly it's not his team anymore and not his decision to make. If he wants to play in the league again, he needs to find a bed with a vacancy.

Put that in your pipe Kobe!

See, Wayne would have never have made a come back ala Jordan, Lemieux, and Hasek. That's because he's got something called class

I'm such an obnoxious bastard!

To be honest, Mario has a lot of class...I could see his reasons for coming back...especially since his young son had never seen him play.
