Sabres criticized over modest ceremony for Dominik Hasek

Did you watch Buffalo’s ceremony for goaltender Dominik Hasek? If you missed it, you may be relieved to know that you really didn’t miss much. The Sabres had Hasek’s number painted behind the nets and raised a banner featuring his number. That’s about it. No special tributes, no former teammates and nothing worth tuning in to see.

Sabres raising Hasek's name, No. 39 to rafters before game vs. Wings

  Dominik Hasek has come to realize how much easier it was turning aside pucks than it is accepting honors. Hasek, after all, never had to give any speeches patrolling the crease during a 16-season NHL career. "To play hockey was much easier," Hasek said Tuesday. "Any time I'm standing in front of so many people, not as a hockey player, but as a person, it's definitely much more...

Gave: Buffalo honors Dominik Hasek, the best big-game goalie ever

Dominik Hasek made the first save. He almost always did. But the puck came right back to Brett Hull, and as the goalie lay prone on the ice, his glove hand stretching to his left, Hull pushed the puck between the glove and the right post into the back of the net, ending the game at 14:51 of the third overtime and giving the Dallas Stars a Stanley Cup championship. But since that...

Mrazek, Wings look to deal Sabres eighth straight loss

Dominik Hasek will have his jersey retired Tuesday night, but two of his former teams might be tempted to try to get the Hall of Famer back on the ice.

Notes: Fitting that Mrazek starts on Hasek jersey ceremony night

It's kind of fitting that Petr Mrazek will start in goal for the Red Wings Tuesday in Buffalo, the same night the Sabres retire the number of Dominik Hasek. "I think it's a special thing for everyone in here who played with him," Mrazek told reporters in Buffalo Monday. "That was my growing-up hero. So I'm pretty excited for that." Although Mrazek was just six when Hasek led the...

. @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...

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.
