I wish people would get off Lalime's nuts. There's no better available goalie out there. Actually, there's no goalie outside of Martin Brodeur who any team could have full confidence in to take them all the way.
Lalime was spectacular in last year's playoffs and got the Sens to within one game of the Stanley Cup Final. He was rock solid when it mattered. There isn't another goalie in the Eastern Conference who you could say 100% will outplay Lalime in a seven game series.
This was a blatant steal. Luckily, I like the Sens. Look at their weapons now: Havlat, Alfredsson, Bondra, Bonk, Hossa, Smolinski & Spezza. There's probably a few I'm missing, but that's TWO FULL LINES of offensive threats. Ye gods.
FLAMES: 30-20-5-3 for 68 points LAST YEAR: 29-36-13-4 for 75 points PACE: 43-30-6-3 for 96 points

If this is what they have to deal with, then the Islanders are almost better off if they don't get into the playoffs again!
Bondra is a fabulous player, have been fan of his for years. Really one of the most consistent point geters for the longest time while playing in one of the most inconsistent teams... Top notch pick up by the Sens.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory is lowered to BLUE alert - Guarded (Due to Eddie being WWE champ and facing Angle at WM, Benoit winning the Rumble in World title match in mania BUT Kliq members is still a threat - Vince you can save us from these threats) 2/17

My pick: Edmonton in round in the West, and Buffalo in the East. It's interesting, because I disliked both Buffalo and Edmonton when I lived in Toronto and Calgary, respectively. It's nice to see so many small market teams go far.
