I was just talking about this guy the other day at the Hounds game. One time in Guelph he fought his own brother.
Won the Memorial Cup with the Soo too IIRC.

I started getting a sinking feeling in my stomach whenever someone had a clear shot at Lalime. I don't know how many unscreened shots I saw go in from the top of the circle.
Lalime had flashes of brilliance, but wasn't a great goaltender.

Plus, who cares? PASCAL LECLAIRE
PS, doesn't that sound like Gerbs? Able to go on stretches where he stands on his head (think: throwing puck out of the zone against the Rangers!!!), then falling flat and letting in anything flicked his way. Flashes of brilliance but just not there.
