Robert Esche

Hi all

Since Rob played in Langnau in the 11/12 season, I'm a huge fan of him.
I saw on eliteprospects.com that he hasn't signed a new contract in this season.

Do you guys know what he is doing now? Has he retired?

Best regards from switzerland

Wow. Haven't heard that name in awhile. I would have to guess he's retiring. You'll never see him close to the NHL again.

Once the Hockey season starts(if it does) and the Flyers goalies struggle(which they will) you will see rumors pop up about him coming back to Philly. It always happens around the deadline, and most likely they are started by Eklund.

I think it was during the Olympics that his downfall began to unfold. He was pretty bad during that stretch and never seemed to recover. As of now, I don't know if he will come back. Maybe as a backup....

They made that decision when they signed Bryz to the contract they did. And I also kinda can't believe they did that. The Flyers did well in the trade for him though. Shrug.


As for Esche, good for him that he made a career over in Russia, but I can't ever see him getting into the league again.

Confusing him with someone else, was never a member of the sabres, only the Phoenix coyotes and Flyers to my knowledge. Confusing him with Patrick Lalime maybe?

Well he's no Roman Cechmanek but the guy can probably find a contract somewhere.
