It'll be interesting to see what Columbus does with goaltending now. They're going to need to bring someone in. Mason could be gone too over the summer. They still have York and Hunwick, and those two both belong in the minors. Dekanich and McElhinney will be UFAs. Their NHL goaltending looks pretty bleak right now. Something should happen in free agency or trades. At the very least they get a veteran backup and give Mason one more chance.
CBJ really should've given Mason a Vokoun like contract.
Now they have to find two NHL goalies.
