Nitty was great - I really liked him. Problem was, we had the worst defense in the NHL and Esche could not be trusted so Nitty and his two bad hips had to play. For some reason he was the scapegoat for the last place season.

Esche looked a lot like Leighton in the Buffalo playoff series so I can't say I ever really liked him.
