What Was Esche Thinking

from the Philly Burbs,
The shock value of Robert Esche's week-old “writing on the wall'' comments has pretty much worn off, but the long-term effects could resonate around the Flyers for some time to come. Looking back on what amounted to a concession speech to rookie Antero Niittymaki, it's a bit perplexing that Esche would voice such an opinion when, at the time, there was still about a month to go in the season. Is Esche some sort of soothsayer, a prophet who's able to gaze into the future and predict that Niittymaki won't get hurt or suffer a downturn in his play?
