I miss the Dominator so bad. I'd love to see him back in the NHL. :banana:

Hasek's presence gives a boost to any team he's on, IMO.

definition of a true professional/team player

why did he ever retire in the first place? he was still so good. lids and him couldve both played for the wings till 47. i wouldnt have a problem with it.

Isn't he like 80 now. No chance in hell I'd want him back on this team. He was my favorite Non-Wings Goalie for years while he was in the NHL but he OLD and should stay retired. How many comebacks does he need to make. Let it go Dom you're done. You've got 2 Cups and a million Vezina's stick to you Old Man Beer League Play.

Hasek could easily out-play 80% (conservatively) of the active goalies in the NHL, today. He will never be anyone's back up, you can count on that.

Hasek never believes he will lose, and is surprised when it happens. After the game, he would take responsibility for his play, say he will do better, and then he would go out and DO it.

I miss that. I watched the Wings chasing the puck in front of Howie last game, letting the Wild skate in with the puck, and I could hear Dom, screaming at the top of his lungs. He would have taken their heads off in the locker room between periods for sucking in front of him. That's what we need. He's what we need, or someone just like him, as if that's possible. Jimmy appeared pretty fed up... perhaps he should channel his inner-Dom. :P

He won't be back, so save the disparaging comments. When Dom left he said, "I am done with the NHL, but not the business of hockey." Apparently he meant that.

A 48 year old Hasek? :stop:



...No thank you, but good to hear he's doing well. I'm sure the man still has insane skills too.

I don't think he's coming back but sufficed to say the guy's in impeccable shape.

Unfortunately, I would rather have Howard in nets over Hasek (any time that Hasek was 45 years old and over). IMO, like I stated previously Ozzie should of been Howards backup.

Ozzie > Ty Conklin!

You guys remember the Hasek that played in the 2008 playoffs? He couldn't stop a beach ball against Nashville.

http://m.espn.go.com...yId=3433498


Holland didn't try to persuade Hasek to return for another season.

"There was nothing to discuss," Holland said. "Dom was completely at peace with the decision that he had made."


He goes away, he comes back, he goes away, he comes back, etc. . .


Good luck on the comeback, but please not with this organization.

Hasek was possibly the greatest. Definitely my favorite goalie ever. So glad we had a chance to enjoy him in a Wing sweater.

But then he too got old. How many times his last season did we groan after he let in a softie right at the beginning of the period?

TIme waits for no man, and contrary to what we'd like to think, it hasn't waited for Dominik Hasek, either. Enjoy the memories.

I kind of hope he does. He struggled in his last turn here, and it's logical to think he'd be worse now, but he puts up respectable numbers in Europe. I'm sure that could translate into some success as a backup.

At any rate, he'd be cheap and I'd take him back in a heart-beat just for old time's sake. Got nothing but love for the Dominator.

Nowhere in that article it says that he tries to make a comeback in the NHL.

Yes, he was shaky in the 2008 playoffs but he also won the Jennings trophy that season with Osgood. Some here say that he's too old now to return but who has seen him play lately?

Generally, and I'm speaking only in general terms here, even the best goaltenders are a much better risk before they turn 46 and have announced their retirement from the NHL twice (2002, 2008).
