Hasek to wait on retirement decision

DETROIT (AP) -Dominik Hasek will wait a few weeks before deciding whether to return to the Detroit Red Wings next season or retire.

``Me and my family have to make the decision,'' said the 42-year-old goaltender, who signed a one-year incentive-laden contract with Detroit last summer.

It turned out to be a good move for both sides as Hasek backstopped the Red Wings to the Western Conference finals, where Detroit was eliminated in six games by the Anaheim Ducks.

``Physically, I felt great this season,'' Hasek said.

And the numbers back him up. Hasek went 38-11-6 with a 2.05 goals-against average, .913 save percentage, and eight shutouts during the regular season, his 15th in the NHL and third with Detroit in two stints.

Hasek was 10-8 with a 1.79 GAA, .923 save percentage, and two shutouts in the playoffs.

``We've talked to him and said we want to see him back,'' Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom said. ``But he's got to take some time and talk to his family.''

Todd Bertuzzi, who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, wants to return to Detroit. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound power forward underwent back surgery in October and played a total of 15 games during the regular season, eight with the Red Wings after being acquired from Florida at the trade deadline.

He had three goals and four assists in 11 playoff games.

``This is a great dressing room to be a part of,'' Bertuzzi said.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland wants to sign Bertuzzi, but only if a deal can fit into the team's salary structure.

Report: Hasek agrees to deal with Detroit
July 5th, 2007

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings have reportedly agreed to terms with netminder Dominik Hasek on a one-year contract.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the 42-year-old Hasek will receive a base salary around $2 million, with incentive bonuses that could double that figure.

The deal is expected to be finalized on Friday.

Hasek, a six-time Vezina Trophy winner and two-time MVP, helped Detroit capture the Stanley Cup in 2002. He returned to the Red Wings last season after a one-year stint in Ottawa, and posted a 38-11 record with a 2.05 goals- against average.
