You're stunned that the THIRD STRING goalie (you know, the guy that never gets into a game) is a European based goaltender who is playing very well? The U.S. brass did the same thing last year with Alex Westlund. There was no way Esche was going to be named as anything but the starter. You can argue that point, but not the selection of a guy like Thomas as the third stringer.
