Yeah, the York verdict is up in the air.
Sanford, great #3 pickup, turned out to be a real solid 1b when put in that position.
Mason again dropped the ball, and Dekanic loses a season to injury, which is a shame because he would have likely had an oppurtunity to win a #1 job had he been healthy.
Once again, things didn't look so bad going into the season between the pipes. I think it was reasonable to assume Mason would bounce back this year (like he did in the last month of the season), and if he didn't, we had a promising young net minder to get in there and see what he can do. If you had asked me in August, I'd say Howson has planned well in goal. But everything that could go wrong, pretty much did. Any future plans that involve Steve Mason as #1 are based on lunacy imo, and if I'm Howson's boss, I ask him point blank what his plans are for netminding in 12/13.
Howson is accountable, but lets remember, any GM in this league is going to have to take some chances with this team.
