    Hasek ain't sitting out; he's sitting in...with his new Winged-Wheeled friends.

    As a huge Av's fan, this kinda sucks. But if he needs the time to heal, I completely understand this. Hopefully he'll come back soon.
    He is the greatest player in the NHL, as far as I'm concerned that is.

    Another current NHL player is facing even graver health problems -- Canadiens captain Saku Koivu will miss the entire 2001-2002 season as he battles cancer.
    Here's hoping that both Koivu and Forsberg regain their health and return to the ice as soon as possible.

    Scott, the situation with Koivu is really sad. From what I've read, the five-year mortality rate for the non-Hodgkin's type of cancer he has is disturbingly high. He is young and in good health otherwise, so he stands a better chance, I would think, then the average person who is afflicted with this type of cancer. Let's hope he pulls through.
