Lalime has let in some very, very weak goals this year. Last year at this time, I was really thinking he was an underrated goalie. I notice some Sens fans on the site are turning sour on him, and even Mcguire points out tonight that Lalime is a weak link for Ottawa. I think they might be shopping for a netminder come deadline time...
As if those games when the sens totally dominated and were outshooting their opponents by huge margins and somehow the score was close and the sens even lost some of those games(a 3-2 loss to the Habs comes to mind earlier this year, that 3-3 tie vs the Pens,etc) weren't proof Lalime can't get the job done...this one just confirmed it.
Since When? Most have placed the loss against the Devils against him, he blew games 3 and 4 and put the team down 1-3.
BTW, Prusek's fundamentals were good enough for him to demolish all AHL existing records and leed his team to the finals if I recall correct. I'm not saying he is the answer but at the very least he can not be any worse. I really think Muck should take a flyer on Burke he would be the perfect fit for a year or 2 until Emery is ready.
Fact is, Ottawa had at least one point lined up before he blew it.
Good teams CAN be outplayed and still win, you know.
Well, *duh*. Everyone knows that.
I'm saying it's a little funny that all the ire is directed at one person when the Sens were awful, except on special teams. How about some accountability for all the OTHER players who played like crap? There were lots, you know.
Was this goal was worse than the one Neidermeyer scored on Hackett? I think it was Hackett. Was it Hackett?
What made it so terrible is that it just trickled behind him for an agonizingly long period of time, no joke, like 5 seconds and he just sat there. All of this compounded by the fact that it came in the last minutes of the game andcost the Sens any chance at one or two points.
