Correction: Hasek deal sweeter than first thought

Bruce Garrioch corrected the initial report of Dominik Hasek's option with the Sens that was picked up yesterday was worth $2.28 million. In fact, Hasek's 2005-06 salary will be for $1.52 million. The $2.28 million was what he would've made last year had the lockout not whiped out the season. However, don't shed too many tears for Hasek over his low pay. He has the chance of making much more, as he can get a $3.5 million bonus if the Sens win the Stanley Cup. And because the deal was signed before the new CBA, the bonus will not count against the $39 million salary cap.
