First Ottawa dealt Radek Bonk to LA who flipped him to Montreal with Huet for Mathieu Garon.
Now they've traded Public Enemy #1 in Ottawa, Patrick Lalime to the St. Louis Blues for a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2005.
Ottawa will get Dominik Hasek now with an incentive laced contract.
I think Lalime will do well in St. Louis because he IS a good goalie and he is a #1 goalie in the NHL but there was way too much pressure on him in Ottawa.
Also, Mathieu Garon will get a shot at being a #1 goalie in LA and I think he can do it. Add that to Martin Gerber going for Anaheim to Carolina and getting the #1 job there and you've got a bunch of new looks in goal already.
Whenever the next season is, Ottawa is going for it all with Hasek and it should be interesting to say the least.

I worked at the Norfolk Scope back when Lalime played in the ECHL. He was such a great goalie and a very nice guy. Now when the Blues have thier open practice this season I will have to don my ADMIRALS sweater and go down and show him some support.

First things first, Maple Leafs need to sign him. Seems like Belfour wants a 3-year deal guaranteed even if there is a lockout... The Calgary Sun has written that is a possibility of Paul Kariya signing with the Leafs once free agents are allowed to start talking to teams in a days time, for whatever that's worth
As for Lalime, I think a change of scenery will do him a world of good... Hasek going to Ottawa, he just seems way too much of a flake these days, can he rebound after some unproductive years. aah I really don't know
