What about my post is wrong

1. The season started with Esche as #1 he got hurt and Nitty came in playing well

2. Nitty has a great Olympics and comes back as the new fave...the starter

3. Nitty, for whatever reason, begins playing poorly and Hitch starts Esche

4. Both Esche and Nitty play inconsistantly down the stretch. Hitch continues to rotate them instead of picking one guy to work his game out....

Last season, at least post Olympic break the Flyers Goalie contoversy and Hitch's ineptitude to make a decision were a drag on the team..
