Modano thinks Seguin will top his career-high 93 points

It’s easy to say that Mike Modano can be proud of the career he had. On Nov. 17, he will officially be inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside a trio of other greats from his era in Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hasek, and Rob Blake. But when Modano looks at Tyler Seguin, he sees a player that is capable of enjoying a better season offensively than he ever had. Modano’s career-high...

Mike Modano’s Hall Of Fame Case

I am completing my Hall of Fame cases for the 2014 player inductees.  I have already written the cases for Rob Blake, Peter Forsberg and Dominik Hasek.  Today I am doing Mike Modano.  Here was the post I wrote in 2006 when I first considered Modano to be a Hall of Famer and here was the post I wrote when he retired. In order to make Hall of Fame cases I use the Keltner List...

Legendary Sabres announcer Rick Jeanneret diagnosed with throat cancer

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. There are very few that match his passion for the sport with his skill as a broadcaster. You could argue his “May Day” call is one of the most famous in any sport. Though he had slowed down in recent years...

Rob Blake’s Hall Of Fame Case

A little over a week ago the 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame inductions were announced.  Four players got the nod this year in Rob Blake, Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hasek and Mike Modano.  Over the next few days I will make their individual Hall of Fame cases using the Keltner List, which is borrowed from baseball but can be used by hockey with only minor changes. Here was my post when...

Not Like The Old Days

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, Free agency ain’t what it used to be. There was a time when it was known for big teams and big dollars and big names – like that summer when the Detroit Red Wings traded for Dominik Hasek, signed Luc Robitaille and later signed Brett Hull, too, bloating their payroll to around $65 million. That was 13 years ago. Today there is...

Dave Andreychuk's HOF exclusion a shameful snub

Pardon me for making you expel your drink through your nose, but Dave Andreychuk was not selected for the Hockey Hall of Fame. Again. Wipe dry and take a moment to say hooray for "The Dominator," goaltender Dominik Hasek, named to the Hall. For America's standard bearer, Mike Modano, a phenomenal playmaker and scorer. For gifted centerman Peter Forsberg, superb defenseman...

Methods of Hasekian madness

InGoal Magazine's Kevin Woodley spoke with Dominik Hasek's long-time goalie coach, Mitch Korn, about reining in Hasek's wild ways to translate to NHL play and "The Dominator's" strengths in the net, and the most fascinating part of the article for me confirms a "myth." So very regularly during his tenure(s) with Detroit, my friends and I would...

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...

Wyshynski wonders whether Chris Osgood is an (eventual) Hall-of-Famer

Presented with a, "This is actually well thought-out" comment, from Yahoo Sports' Greg Wyshynski: Unfortunately for Chris Osgood, his first year of Hall of Fame eligibility comes in the same season as Dominik Hasek’s. It’s pretty much the starkest comparison that can be drawn between two winning goalies from the same era: One was a steady success with little...

Anything Can Happen At Any Time

from Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post, Look, you start with the goalie. One of the greatest terms in all of sport is one you hear ad nauseum this time of the year, about the goalie “standing on his head.” That is a metaphor, of course. But it also is about as true as true gets in sports, especially when you run into someone like Dominik Hasek back in the day, Henrik Lundqvist...

Do The Rangers Actually Struggle Against Backup Goaltenders?

We have all heard the sarcastic sentiment before, and probably said it ourselves from time to time. Any time a time a backup goaltender is brought out to face the Rangers, it’s “time to make him look like a Vezina Winner.” Or just in general, people question why the Rangers make “every backup look like Dominik Hasek.” With Carey Price stunningly out for the rest of the...
