from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star, Leafs executive Dave Nonis was asked this week if the Leafs might even consider the services of Dominik Hasek, the one-time dominator who has announced his contemplation of an NHL comeback at age 47. “I think we’re looking for a veteran — I don’t know if we’re looking for that much of a veteran,” quipped Nonis, Toronto’s senior vice president of hockey operations. Still, while Leafs GM Brian Burke has espoused his belief in the talent of James (Real Deal) Reimer — and while the club has been delighted with the performance of Ben Scrivens, who has backstopped the AHL Marlies to the Calder Cup final — it’s expected that both Reimer, 24, and Scrivens, 25, will face bigger-named competition for NHL starts come training camp. An upgrade in goal, of course, has been long promised and undelivered.

Hasek considering NHL return

Future Hall of Fame goalie Dominic Hasek has been keeping himself in shape and is contemplating coming out of retirement at the age of 47. Two teams are reportedly interested.

Red Wings overnight report: milking Hasek’s return story and a tough way for Jurco to go

The 47-year-old Czech goaltender isn't quite ready to say goodbye to the game he loves, telling Denik Sport that he is working hard to make a comback to professional hockey. Hasek has been in and out of retirement for the last 13...

Yes, Dominik Hasek is indeed planning another comeback

I mentioned this in passing while penning the overnight report because I thought it was amusing, but gauging by the retweets from RedWingsFeed and a story just posted by CBS Detroit, I’m guessing that the story merits its own entry: Former Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek did indeed tell iSport.cz that he’s interested in playing in trying to make one more NHL comeback at 47 years...

Toronto Marlies advance to Calder Cup Finals, collide with Norfolk Admirals

The bust that was the Toronto Maple Leafs 2011-12 season has a silver lining, and, perhaps, optimism on the horizon. There’s a glimmer of hope west of the Air Canada Centre at the Ricoh Coliseum, home of the AHL Toronto Marlies.
