Dominik Hasek's words stir controversy in the hockey world
BY JOSHUA SEPTEMBER 16, 2023 (3:21)
Is there anyone who enjoys war? It is the NHL and the hockey world, however, that Hasek blames for hiring Russian players.
The Ukrainian Peoples Champion
Hasek, known for his polarizing remarks on the conflict, recently made a statement that many may consider absurd.
I understand that Hasek wants to motivate the IIHF, NHL and other worldwide hockey organizations to help end the conflict, but his latest suggestion may seem a bit ridiculous.
Recompense Through Sanction
For letting Russians play in the NHL, Hasek proposes that the NHL send Ukraine $2 to $4 billion dollars each year.
Having asked for Russian athletes to be banned from competition in 2022, this idea is not out of the ordinary for him.
In spite of it seeming as if no one has followed through, the IIHF has listened to him, and Russians have been banned from IIHF play, while cooperation between the NHL and KHL has been severely compromised.
It is undoubtedly true that Hasek is acting in good faith and trying to assist innocent Ukrainians.
Perhaps, he could lobby to end the war on a bigger stage: The UN.
