Who said you need a proven G to win a cup?

Utterly wrong in the case of Osgood, and it would be utterly wrong in the case of Esche (or any other goalie, for that matter). But it will happen. Promise.
Sorry, but it's gonna take at least two good seasons as a starter for Esche to be considered good. The potential is certainly there. Oh, and BTW, I think Osgood is a great goaltender.
