    There is going to be a lot of good goalies in play this off season. Who in the world would be desperate enough to take this guy?

    the leafs will take this guy he'd be an upgrade on what they have now in net,and he'd help reimer and teach him some techiniques  to help his development,and they'd get him cheap too.

    There is no way Reimer could play the style that Hasek played. 

    I seriously doubt he will be able to play well in the NHL now, did he even play in any league last year?

    If he can hold a save% of at least .900 I wouldn't mind him on the leafs as a backup. They need that veteran presence back there.

    I hear a lot of people saying Hasek should just become a goalie coach or something and that idea makes me laugh. Unless he's the goalie coach for Thomas, he's probably not a guy I'd be pushing for for that position.
