Lalime shuts out Canucks

3-0 with 34 saves. Good for Patty. He's a first class guy, even if he's a second class goalie. He's certainly been through a lot since he left, and I'm happy to see him making the most of his opportunity.

I've always liked Patrick Lalime, and even I was saddened when I knew his gig here was up.

Classy guy who was in between the pipes for many of our franchise's best and worst moments.

Good for Lalime! Despite Lalime bashers, i always liked him. I really loved it when he literally beat Philly by himself in the five-game series. I hope he really does well and revives his career with Marty Havlat.

I really hated the guy when he was with Ottawa, and I have no reason why. Well, actually it was probably because I thought his immitation of Andreas Bocelli during the canadian anthem was obnoxious (where he closed his eyes and tilted his head from side to side, with his beard and long hair).

Having said that, I thought he took alot of heat from the press and ottawa's fans. He was partially to blame (or entirely, if you're a sens fan) for the 03-04 playoff loss vs Toronto. Emery is certainly taking over quite nicely (as I thought he would) but I'm quite sure that any sens fan would take Lalime over Gerber at this time.

Fantastic thread!!!

Everyone knows I love him...I'm so glad that he got the shutout today. I hope he continues to play well, and keeps building his confidence.

I've just finished watching it on TVU. Nice to see Marty at the end with Patty give him a lengthy knock on the helmet.

He's the greatest, and did a lot for this team.

Patty

I shed so many tears. I was so utterly heartbroken the way it finished for him here.

I just want to see him come back and have some success.

Why is it eerie to see so many pieces of Ottawa spread across the league?

Chicago and Atlanta harbour key pieces of what we used to be. Washington is where we sent our rejects.

You could have shut out the canucks tonight.... trust me 34 shots no scoring chances. You're WAY better off with Emery and Gerber. Let me re-itterate, My DOG could have shutout the canucks...

Yes, of course. *rolls eyes*

A shut out is a shut out. Credit where it is due. Sore loser.

You're missunderstanding me. I'm saying don't judge Lalime when he's playing a canucks team like this. Wait till he plays a real team.

Who cares if he earned it. Nowhere did we say that we thought he was a great goale, just a phenomenal guy who gave his heart and soul to our team and we're happy to see him have another moment of glory in the NHL. If your dog had been publicly humiliated, traded to the worst team in the league, sent to the minors and then rotted there while battling through a string of career threatening injuries before finally showed signs of returning to his old self, I'd be happy for him too.

Lalime has the ability to shut down any team. When he plays behind good defence, he can be a wall. Just ask the the other teams who played the Sens during their glory years. The problem with Lalime is that he is sometimes inconsistant. The only reason he left Ottawa was because of repeated failure to out-duel Cujo in the FOUR post-season Toronto-Ottawa series. Fans demanded some heads to roll. Unfortunately, one was Lalimes.

Lalime, if he can rejuvenate his career, could provide any team good goaltending. He definately is NHL calibre. As nyquil mentioned, he is a class act player, respectful, and extremely charitable towards the community. In terms of character, i think he is exemplary of what an NHL hockey player should be. I think the blackhawks are lucky to have him. He is a quiet leader in the dressing room and if his team doesn't completely abandon him, he can play with great intensity and steal games,

Will add fuel to the trade habby rumours out there

I wonder if it was true that Boucher was the back up tonight

Nice. I'm still pissed off at how we treated Lalime. He never deserved to be kicked when he was down either.

You know what. I agree 100% with that, I remember watching Ottawa when Lalime was THE player over there. Just a total phenom. Back when Jose, Lalime, and Belfour were all just unbelievable. But just don't take tonights shutout as signs of him getting back to form. Tho he did play descent enough to stop the lame shots the canucks did get.

Yes, Boucher backed up Lalime while the Bulin wall took the entire night off. It will be interesting to see how Chicago deals with having three NHL capable goaltenders. Im not sure who would keep, but with Nikolai Khabibulin's salary, i would suspect he may be the trade bait.

You just know Jay Feaster would kill to have him back. The question is will he part with one of the big three to get him. If Tallon can somehow pry Richards away, you have to consider it a steal for the Hawks. If it's only Prospal plus, not so much.

Hasek get's injured and Detroit trades for Lalime who wins a Stanley Cup with them. How do you like your crow?

Joking aside, he did very well on his conditioning stint in the AHL. He has a shutout on his 2006-2007 debut, things are looking good for him.

LOL, musical goalies between Tampa and Chicago. Worse... Lalime gets traded and stones us in the playoffs. Haha, poetic justice.

Good for him! He's such a great guy; I really hope he can achieve some measure of success in the NHL again.

Whoa, you're going a little far there. Yes, Lalime was a classy and likeable guy who had one great playoff series and a couple that were OK. But I don't think you fully grasp how bloody awful he was for his last season and a half here. At his worst, Gerber has never that bad.
