Given the market seems pretty settled for goalies, it limits Ellis's opportunities to go elsewhere. On the flip side, this compounds our situation with Mason. Nobody will take a chance at him for a number 1 slot given this season's debacle. Our only good chance to unload him is

a) buy him out, which is probably too painful for our ownership group to swallow
b) find a team with an overpriced surplus winger or d-man that we could trade problems with.

Otherwise, I have said it for the last two seasons-- this team must get bigger, grittier, and stronger at forward to go anywhere.
Ottawa ... Ray Emery is all but out the door ... and Martin Gerber (will be 34 at the beginning of training camps)
