. @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.

In fact, many of you...

Regner: Osgood belongs in the Hockey Hall of Fame

While I watched Monday's Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony, I couldn't help but think about next year's class of inductees, which should have a distinct Detroit Red Wings flavor. Nicklas Lidstrom and Sergei Fedorov will be eligible for the Hall for the first time, and they should make it on the first ballot. Lidstrom is a given, but Fedorov is a bit more dicey. Hopefully, the...

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.

Though you’ve rarely, if ever, seen his work on national television, Buffalo Sabres’ voice Rick Jeanneret remains the owner of one of hockey’s most indelible tones.
