NHL.com preview of the Flyers

Quote:
Clarke has shown he isn't the least bit afraid to make a move he believes will help his team win. He and coach Ken Hitchcock have done an excellent job keeping the Flyers among the NHL's elite. With a better bounce of the puck in 2004, the Flyers would have represented the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup finals. That's how close the battle between the Flyers and Tampa Bay Lightning was.

"Esche added to his reputation in 2003-04, going 21-11-7 with a 2.04 goals-against average. He was 11-7 in the 2004 postseason with a 2.32 GAA, playing some excellent hockey as he almost got the Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals."

Brasear does have good straight away speed, just not the most agile.

2 glaring mistakes.

"Richards joined the Phantoms after Kitchener was eliminated from the playoffs and promptly scored 11 goals and 17 assists in just 15 AHL playoff games."

I am pretty sure the 11 goals and 17 assists were in the OHL. He scored 7 goals 15 points in 14 games in the AHL.

"Robert Esche firmly established himself as the Flyers' No. 1 goalie in 2002-03, paving the way for the trade of Roman Cechmanek. Esche added to his reputation in 2003-04, going 21-11-7 with a 2.04 goals-against average."

Huh... How could he have "established" himself if he was the backup in the playoffs? Not only that but Esche didn't even solidify himself as the #1 in 03-04 until the playoffs. Down the strech he played horrible.

I would not call Esche horrible. He played pretty good against Devils. He played good against LEafs I wished he was just a little better against Tampa but FLyers are not that lucky with goalies.
He has problems with stopping a long shot but like I said I would not call him horrible tough.

Exactly, he never cost the Flyers a game. He always gave the rest of the team a chance to win. It's unfortunate that there were lapses but it's not like he became a liability.

I said Esche played horrible down the strech of the 03-04 season leading right up until the last game where he still let up 3 or more goals if I remember correctly. Like I said he didn't solidify the #1 goalie spot until the playoffs started and he played great against the Devils, Leafs, and Bolts.
