It's the biggest vault in the small town of Pardubice. This is where Dominik Hasek locked his career away. The six Vezina trophies he won as the NHL's best goalie. The two Harts for being the league's MVP. The 1998 Olympic gold medal, which he won pretty much single-handedly for the Czech Republic. A boulder of a ring, souvenir of the sweetest victory of all, the Red Wings' 2002 Stanley Cup. It's all there, even the bulbous leather leg pads, catcher's glove, blocker and goalie mask he wore in his glorious single season with Detroit.
