Apparantly, Tim Cheveldae and Mike Vernon weren't answering their phones yesterday or they might have been signed, too.
DETROIT - The Dominator is coming back to Hockeytown.
The Red Wings took care of their muddled goaltending situation Monday by signing 14-year veteran Dominik Hasek to a one-year contract.
Hasek, who helped the Wings to their last Stanley Cup title in 2002, is returning to Detroit after an injury-plagued season with the Ottawa Senators. He joins another Red Wings Cup-winner, Chris Osgood, who was brought back as a reserve.

"I don't know if it's Biscayne Boulevard or where it is, but there is an image in my mind about the symbolic championship parade."
My wife has already vowed to not watch a single game this year. I don't believe her resolve will last through the first period, but I agree with the sediment. I'm not very happy about this. I wanted to see them stick with Ozgood, and have Jimmy Howard (prospect in Grand Rapids) back him up.
Two, most of the major players (Hasek and Hull) that came to the Wings in the off-season, WANTED to come to the Wings. That's like using the argument that the Yankees AREN'T buying the World Series because players who go there want to be Yankees...
