Hasek's Back, With Olympics In Mind
Dominik Hasek's retirement is over. Yes, again.
The Dominator has signed a one year contract with HC Moeller Pardubice, a club in the town where he was born and started his career with.
"I'm really glad I could sign a deal with this club," Hasek said. "It's a club where I spent the most years. I've never even thought I could play for any other club in the Czech Republic. I'm looking forward to the next season."
I do not believe for a second that Hasek is motivated by nostalgia. No. He's motivated by the 2010 Olympics. He wants to be there.
When asked about the possibility, Hasek said "will be a motivation for me in training." He also noted he was unaware if the coaching staff would be interested in him.

I don't think any athlete can ever retire for as long as that competitive nature is still itching.
This is awesome news! I never like to see the heroes of my generation ride off into the sunset, and if Hasek can prove himself and even get a backup spot with the Czecks, who knows what happens after that?
