His playoff GAA and SV% are among the best of any goalie in NHL history.

Lalime's career was defined by that game 7 loss to Toronto, no question. Total meltdown. But he deserves way more credit than you are giving him.
You may be right, I just can't forget or forgive those losses to those stinking Leafs b ut the other promlem that has haunted this team for yrs has been their inability to score in the playoffs. The exception to that would be Heatley, he seemed to be the only guy on this team that could score when they needed it most, he was a significant loss to this team's scoring ability just ask Spezza & Alfredson.
