Matthew Barnaby destroys Dominik Hasek with epic backhanded compliment!

This is the quote of the year! So ruthless...



A former National Hockey League enforcer is sounding off on who he thinks is the best goalie of all times. Earlier this week, Marc-Andre Fleury became the NHL’s second-winningest regular season goalie after the Minnesota Wild defeated the New York Islanders 5-0, earning his 552nd career win and surpassing Patrick Roy. However, if you ask former NHL enforcer Matthew Barnaby, no one has and will ever come close to six-time Vezina Trophy winner Dominik Hasek.

And Barnaby is adamant about it, even though he admits to hating the guts of his former teammate in Buffalo. The former tough guy went on an epic rant about Hasek on the air of the Clearing The Crease podcast and offered some memorable quotes about the Czech netminder.

“In my opinion, people can point to Marty Brodeur or Patrick Roy, and listen if you played with them I understand, we always have a loyalty that way… Dom is by far in my opinion, the best goaltender to ever f***ing play the game.

“To me, there’s no one even close. Not even remotely close,” Barnaby added.

But that was just before going off about Hasek as a human being and teammate.

“And I f***ing hate the guy. The worst teammate ever, EVER!

“Dominik is the best of all time, but teammate? Damn, the sh*t I saw this guy do and pull with teammates and fans. Listen, he’s not a great dude at all, and I say great that’s not what I want to use. This guy could be a serial douchebag at times. Now I’m sure he’s 75 years old now and a lot better, but no I wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire.”

Barnaby and Hasek played together for the Sabres from 1992-1993 to 1998-1999.

Hasek, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2014, recorded 389 wins, 223 losses and 82 ties through his 735 regular season games. He finished with a goals-against average of 2.20 and his save percentage was .922. A six-time NHL All-Star (1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001), Hasek compiled an extraordinary collection of NHL awards: two Hart Trophy wins (1997, 1998), two Lester B. Pears Awards (1997, 1998), six Vezina Trophies (1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001), three Jennings Trophies (1994, 2001, 2008) and Stanley Cup championships in 2002 and 2008 with the Detroit Red Wings.

However, according to Barnaby, Hasek would never have won teammate of the year…
