Dominik Hasek is hanging 'em up. No matter what you thought about him - did he hang around too long? - he was clearly one of the most dominant goalies of his era (we would say "most dominant," but Martin Brodeur is sitting out there as part of the argument). Still, when greatness ends, you must recognize it. To that end: a Clip Reel on the superbly sublime style of Mr. Hasek.
