I have a hard time giving Esche respect or credit considering the way he was in Phoenix. If he makes a career of it, good for him, but I won't be cheering for him. Credit to him for turning his life around however, that much I can give him.

I think Esche is very overrated by people who think he is great, and I don't think he'll hold up to the test of time at all. He'll be another Chris Osgood, a good goalie in his own right, but not that calibre among the top in the league. I'd expect Esche to lose the starting job in Philly within the next 2 seasons. That's not that shocking considering the goalie carousel for the Flyers the past few years though.
