Frei:  Hasek Bargain Of Year So Far

'dique apologist Terry Frei writes for ESPN today that Dominik Hasek tops a list of ten "best bang for the buck" goalies.
That's right, the Red Wings are getting far more than their money's worth from Hasek, who will be 42 when the playoffs begin. Of course, all bets are off if he breaks down before the postseason and Detroit has to count on either Chris Osgood or Joey MacDonald in the playoffs.
Wouldn't it be something if Hasek DID break down, only to leave the team in the hands of Osgood...and he succeeds? I guess his $900,000/year deal would qualify as a bargain then too, eh?

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
