Official Lalime Watch PLAYOFF EDITION.......(Vol. 4:Mar.25+)
« on: March 25, 2004, 11:45:33 AM »
Lalime is going to have a solid game tonight.  No really ugly super sofites.  Guaranteed right here and now!    It's time for the team to shake off this slump like they did the November one.

Lalime sucks. The free ride is over.
This awesome team has carried him far enough. Time for him to get off the coat tails.

He wont be missed next year.
Luongo sucks.

Lalime has the same save percentage as Felix Potvin. .903%

Prusek has the same save percentage as Jose Theodore. .923%

As an effort to de-personalize this argument, answer me this:
1) Who do you think is a better goalie Felix Potvin or Jose Theodore?
2) Who has played better this year Felix Potvin or Jose Theodore?
3) Who would you rather start the playoffs with as your #1 goalie Felix Potvin or Jose Theodore?

Is this prediction based on the current planet alignment???

Because he just had a good game a week ago, so his next good game is not due for a long time yet.

Clearly the answer to all three is Theodore.  And I am going to suggest that Potvin has more playoff experience than Theodore (although I stand to be corrected).  However, with that said, what will keep me sane in these days leading up to the playoffs is that there has to be some sort of method to the seeming 'madness' of the Sens' goalie selection.  Do I think it makes sense?  No.  Can I explain why the numbers for Ottawa goalies are not apparently used to determine who plays?  No.  Do I think that the management have a plan?  Yes.  Do I think that their plan will be successful?  Time will tell.

I am as guilty as the next fan for venting and feeling frustrated and even letting negativism waft into some of my posts.  But I will also admit that I am not in the room or privy to the thoughts of those who are.  And I am certainly holding onto the hope that they indeed know better than I do what is the best course of action.

I would suggest that the guys try to remember who they dedicated this season to and reach down really, really deep remembering the words that Roger said to them during the Jersey series last spring for their inspiration.

I've said this before, but I wonder how much having a full-time goalie coach is affecting his head.  I'm sure he's not used to someone disecting his every move game in and game out.  Would bother me anyway.

I'm not sure about where Lalime played his juniors, but all goalies in the QMJHL have had experience with a full-time goaltending coach.

Pretty good game by Patty. A couple of impressive saves.

I am by no means Lalime's #1 fan, but you have to give him more than "pretty good".

I'm not convinced yet. I'll wait until the game on Saturday until I conclude anything about this latest twist and turn in Lalime's world.

well he has been steadily improving since the trade deadline. Hey how about those blondes in the crowd? (whistles).  Yeah. Patrick was on his game tonight. Just keep er up against the Leafs.
Everybody say 'Oh Yea-yer'


And No!  I'm not a Leafs or Owen Nolan fan!

I don't think anybody is convinced yet. Although this was easily his best game this year. He faced a ton of quality shots. This game could have easily gone the other way if it wasn't for many key saves by Lalime. What a great sight to see when Lalime makes a huge save and then we counter and score at the other end. I think that happened twice tonight. The forwards did their part by scoring and Lalime did his part by keeping it out of the net.
