Esche was also hurt by them taking away some of his padding, because he basically just relied on the puck hitting him.

In other news, I love the "Jeff Reese is the messiah" meme around here. I have yet to see an explanation for why the goaltending was *ing awful in Tampa Bay under his tutelage after Khabi left.
Because his goalies were ****ing awful. You can only polish a turd so much, and even then, it's just a shiny turd. His results last year have me feeling pretty confident that he's not hurting anything. Messiah status can't be granted until he successfully teaches Boucher how execute a butterfly slide and a leg extension from the butterfly (as opposed to falling over like the friggin leaning tower of Piza and trying to cover the entire net with your glove).
