the flyers right now don't have an answer. For some reason, they think Michal Handzus can lead the rush.
It's real simple: they can't score. There are not enough finishers on this team. We need someone like Havlat, Hossa, Alfredsson, etc. Those guys are finishers, Ottawa has 3 of them and we have none. Not only that, but when in doubt, guys like Chara throw it at the net as opposed to the Flyers, who will wheel it around the boards. Amonte is useless. Zhamnov is slumping. Roenick is playing with the puck. Who is our best finisher? We don't even have a 30 goal scorer on a team that has $60+ mill in payroll. And while Esche was rather bad tonight, Changing the goalie isn't going to fix scoring problems. The Flyers are letting everything that happened to them last year, happen again.
You really have to wake up, or you have never played competitive hockey before. The worst thing that can happen to you is playing awesome, then your goalie letting you down with a soft goal ( If any of you like the way Esche has played vs Burke in the last 10 games, pass the crack). Once you lose faith in your goalie, you are pooched until you go with someone else. And we don't have a 40 goal scorer, we don't need one. Hitch's system does not require it, with above average goaltending we are going to be tough, real tough!
