from CP via Slam, Senators GM John Muckler liked what he heard from Dominik Hasek when the two talked recently.
"I could hear that passion in his voice . . . He's on a mission and he wants to prove that he cam become an elite player again," Muckler said in a conference call Wednesday. "That excites me." It excited Muckler enough to exercise the Sens' one-year, $1.52-million US option on the 40-year-old goaltender.
