I don't think this team will really see that much of a difference in terms of quality of play. I suspect Mason will bring about what Vokoun has brought to the table numbers wise this year. Our backup situation is the main cause for concern (IMO). One thing that will be a huge difference is rebounds. Mason kicks out tons of rebounds, something a fully healthy Vokoun did not do (granted this past year, his rebound control was far below his normal standards). Our defense is going to have to adapt to this style of play.

To be quite honest, I think that to truly excel in Trotz's system/style of play we need a goalie that can move the puck. Neither Mason or Vokoun can do that effectively, and I think that part of the advantages of having such a great puck-moving defense is neutralized.
