I don't know what this love affair is with Robert Esche... In three games (yes, I know, THREE games) Niitty has played better than Esche... so give him more starts, and see how long it continues. Although, I'm sure all the Esche lovers/Niitty haters will banish him as soon as he has one bad game. Esche has had several bad games of giving up 3 or more goals.

I just don't get the fascination with "just because bob clarke says Esche is the #1" that no one else can get a chance. You know, as much as some people hate the "losing your job because you're injured" if someone better comes along, go with it. If the St. Louis Rams used that philosophy, Kurt Warner never would have had the chance to rise & win a super bowl.

I'm not saying (because no one can predict the future) that Niitty will win the cup for the Flyers, I'm just trying to say that it's entirely unfair to a guy to not have the chance to keep playing when... HE'S NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG!
