Answer that question, then try and come up with a value on the guy.
A couple more things that I was thinking...

1)Teams might hope that Mason to Columbus was Lehtonen to Atlanta. Then Mason to the team that wants him is Lehtonen to Dallas. With that said, Atlanta only got Ivan Vishnevskiy and a 4th rounder for Lehtonen. You could say Mason=Lehoten when he was in Atlanta so Columbus would probably get someone like Ivan Vishnevskiy and a 4th. That is not enough for Columbus so we can't trade him imo. Atlanta had Ondrej Pavelec coming up, we have noone.

2)If the Jackets are asking for alot, I would think teams would make a move for someone like Cory Schneider first.
