There is NOTHING happening in Hockey today that even comes close to how exciting this little "do-diddy" is!!!

If anyone put there can DO THIS and do it Right it is Hasek who is without any doubt one of the single best goalies to ever play this game !!!

He is Ten Times the goaltender Now...at 47...than Price ever was or is now...TEN TIMES AT LEAST !!!

THIS GUY THROWS HIS BODY AND HEAD AT THE PUCK CAREY PRICE, EVEN IN THE VIDEO GAMES WITH HIM IN THEM, COWERS AWAY FROM THE PUCK ON EVERY SINGLE SHOT AGAINST.

IN FACT IF HASEK MAKES IT BACK I WILL BE CHEERING FOR THE TEAM HE PLAYS FOR TO WIN THE CUP JUST TO PROVE THIS FUCKING POINT...THAT THIS GUY IS BETTER NOW AT 47 THEN CAREY PRICE EVER WAS OR EVER WILL BE !!!

Despite his advancing age, Dominik Hasek is "very motivated" to play again in the NHL.

The 47-year-old goaltender is looking to make a return to the NHL four years after he retired from the Detroit Red Wings. He played with Spartak Moscow of the KHL last season, going 23-18-3 with a 2.45 goals-against average in 44 games.

Hasek says he has been on the ice daily and has hired a goalie coach in an effort to get back into game shape.

"I'm planning to come back. Which team, or if it's possible, I don't have an answer for that," Hasek said in a video on NHL.com . "But I'm very motivated and we will see. I still believe that I can do my job and I still believe that I can be helpful for some team."

Hasek is reportedly looking for a multi-year contract. Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said last week that he has rejected Hasek's overtures but "would love to see him back in the league."

Unreal man . Let's wait and see what Price accomplishes by the time he's 47 then we will talk . By the way , that's still 23 years from now . Hasek will be dead by the time Price is 47 and so will you .By the way , Hasek wasn't even a starter in the league until he was 28 and he was 25 when he played his first game . I'm glad u used your video games as a example though . That's some serious detective work on your part .
