Philly's Goaltending Issues...

As it wasn't bad enough for the Philadelphia Flyers, who got a pretty putrid performance from the duo of Robert Esche and Antero Niittymaki last season, now Antero, the better of the two, is out for a looooooooong time with a torn labrum in his left hip.

So, now Rebound Machine, Robert Esche, is going to have to shoulder the load and the backup is a no-namer named Martin Houle.

I know pre-season doesn't mean much, but you can't be thrilled to be a Flyers fan and see

Martin Houle: 4GP 0-2-0 2.79GAA 84.6SV%
Robert Esche: 3GP 0-2-0 5.63GAA 82.6SV%

Ouch! I almost feel sorry for them.
