. @mmigliore: Remembering Dominik Hasek, the Best Sabre Ever?

Joe asked me to write the Ode to Andre Reed when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in August, so it would make sense that he would ask me to do the same for Dominik Hasek this week. Hasek was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday. He certainly went in with a lot less fanfare than Reed. After all, there was no huge stadium ceremony or TV coverage. In fact, many of you...

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,...

Dominik Hasek ignored phone call about Hall of Fame induction

The news regarding Dominik Hasek’s induction into the Hall of Fame took a while to reach the goaltender. Here’s another classic instance where an athlete ignored a phone call which held important news.  When Hasek received the phone call, it came from a number he wasn’t familiar with so he was a little reluctant to answer. Ultimately deciding to answer, the connection on...

Regner: Dominik Hasek one Hall-uva goalie

When Dominik Hasek arrived for his first Red Wings training camp in September 2001, his reputation preceded him. He was already a legendary goalie. Every media member in Traverse City, Mich., that day was eager to meet him. We knew he was a fascinating character and wanted to try to figure out what made him tick. We didn't have to wait long to witness it. Practice had long been over...
