Sabres criticized over modest ceremony for Dominik Hasek

Gave: With everything on the line, nobody better than Hasek

Now that Dominik Hasek is safely enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, can we talk about his place among the all-time great goaltenders in the game? To be sure, there is a Greatest Generation of fans who watched Terry Sawchuk (No. 1 up in the rafters at Joe Louis Arena) as nearly impenetrable for those Red Wings Stanley Cup teams in the 1950s. Others might argue for Patrick Roy,...
