'After nine years as a Buffalo Sabre, goaltender Dominik Hasek was traded late Saturday night to the Detroit Red Wings for left winger Slava Kozlov, a first-round draft pick in 2002 and future considerations. The Sabres swapped Hasek rather than picking up the option year on his contract for $9 million or letting him become an unrestricted free agent.'
