your perpetual goaltending problems (like our perpetual defensive defenseman problems) are what stand between you and the Cup. Unless either Esche or Burke uncharacteristically can play consistently well, you will not make it, despite your superior coaching.
Our problem with goaltending is no longer perpetual. It's no longer a problem. We have a very solid, young goalie ready to show everyone that Philly is the real deal this year. That's all Esche has done this year is play consistently well. Despite injuries that has happened to our defense and our offense, he has lead the way with his consistent play. He doesn't get rattled at all. He has gone up against the best and has come out the winner. Add to the fact that we have upgraded the defense with Markov, Timander, Malakhov, Pitkanen and Rico coming back soon, it only betters our chances. Then add JR & Primeau in with the forwards we have, we just became a harder team to beat. If anything, we have the best chance out of all the teams.
