So I caught whispers of a rumor that Jan Mursak may be changing his number next season.  In fact, it may be for the same reason that Johan Franzen changed his number from 39 to 93 after his rookie season in 2005-2006.The return of Dominik Hasek.I wouldn't post such a ridiculous notion unless there was a news source to back it up.  The Dominator, according to the Midland Free Press, is eyeing either Detroit or Stevie-Y's team for a possible return next season.Make the jump for more. The 47 year old netminder - whose personality and antics can be as odd as his goaltending stlye - has been out of the NHL since the Red Wings hoisted the Cup back in Pittsburgh in 2008.Apparently, Dom has met with both Detroit and Tampa Bay."Of course, my agent, Ritch Winter, knows about what I want.  But I don't want to comment on that any further. Nothing changed in my plans. But right now, I don't have anything in front of me. So I'm waiting. I think in June the decision will be made." --Dominik HasekWe are all familiar with Mr. Ritch Winter - who is the agent of Marian Hossa and orchestrated his flight to the Chicago Blackhawks...I wonder how the relationship is between Mr. Winter and our own Kenny Holland.A lot of decisions are going to have to be made in June and July.  But when Chris posted his article on Goalies We Could Use, it's not surprising that he omitted Hasek on his list.  Hasek last played for Moscow in the KHL in 2010-2011, where he posted a 23-18-3 record while recording seven shutouts, a 2.45 GAA and a .915 save percentage.Is he the answer to our back-up goaltending issue?  I would think that the majority of you would give us a resounding "NO!"....but still, it's an intriguing notion...wouldn't you agree?
