Sabres to Retire Hasek's Number Next Season

On the day before the Buffalo Sabres induct goalie Dominik Hasek into their own Hall of Fame, the team announced today via twitter that Hasek's number 39 will be retired at some point next season. Nobody has worn the number since Hasek left Buffalo after the 2000-01 season and nobody ever will again as it will be raised to the rafters. Hasek's number 39 joins the following retired numbers in Sabres history:

2 Tim Horton
7 Rick Martin
11 Gilbert Perreault
14 Rene Robert
16 Pat LaFontaine
18 Danny Gare

What do you think about the Bills acquisition of Matt Cassel?
  I like it. They can win with Cassel, a strong run game and great defense.
  I don't like it. He's done nothing since his big year in 2010.
  The Bills should still bring in another QB to compete.
