'It may not sit well with the good people of Buffalo where Hasek spent the bulk of his career, but it's not like Hasek ran out on them. He gave them the best nine years of his career, a near-decade of goaltending excellence the likes of which the city has never seen and likely will never see again. He did have his chances to win there, but the franchise is one that is not set up to win. It was a franchise that hoped to ride his remarkable skills to a championship, not one that built around them.'
