Reality of the Flyers and why people just don't seem to "gesche" it!
I do realize that there was some sketchy reffing involved in the Flyers loss to Atlanta on Friday but the reality is that we are not going to win with Esche. It was embarrassing to watch Kovolchuck set up on the left point and score 2 goals with absolute ease. Granted some quality shots but from the same spot-it's unacceptable. Every game he is in turns into a shootout. His rebound control and puck handling skills are very erratic and his general attempt at mimicing a calm presence is quite frankly sickening.
It would appear that every shot he saves at this point, a collective exhale of relief is displayed by all in the building and on the bench.
What is it that Nitty is going to have to do to get back to back starts? Hopefully after Esche drops the ball again tonight that reality may happen. When is Hitch going to return to his win at all costs and play the better goaltender- and in the mean while could someone remind Robert that he is playing for a contract next year.
