So if Emery falls flat on his face, we'll have Esche to come save the day? You have to be kidding. With Emery as our starter this team needs to go after a young goalie with upside so if Emery diminishes, at least the season wouldn't be a total waste, as that young goalie would get valuable experience.
Besides our goalie situation, this team is set up to contend now, despite what naysayers will dispute. But those optimists who actually think a tandem of Emery and Esche will actually help this team progress at all are delusional. This team is matured except for in goal, but unfortunately the Flyers need to start over there and get a good young goalie with upside. Not goalies who played in Russia last year because they weren't good enough to play in the NHL.
