Actually no he hasnt. The difference has been so little that the lead has changed from game to game. Burke probably has regained it now considering his impressive start to the season.
Incidentially its quite amazing how Philly fans have jumped off the Cechmanek bandwagon.. you cant see them for dust now. Its always been ironic how using save percentage was their best defense for Cechmanek and yet Sean Burke's as well.
And yes I do still think Cechmanek is very good. Say all you want he still has gone 3-1 with the only defeat to the Redwings who arent exactly minnows. I just think Burke is even more impressive for doing it on a basement team.
