There has been speculation guys like Halak, Backstrom etc are available, but that isn't a for sure thing.

Mason is better overall then any UFA goalie.

Luongo might not waive his NTC to come to Toronto.

Flames don't seem to be rebuilding since they signed Hudler and re signed Stempniak and Sarich etc. So it looks like Kipper won't be moving.

Mason is young, big upside and I think can be a starting goalie in this league (inconsistent one), so him and Reimer can battle for the #1 position, plus Mason is an upgrade over Gus so we improve in net.

He would come cheap since he hasn't played well over the past few seasons, and maybe a change of scenery and playing in a defensive system will do him good and he can bounce back.

As I said, I wouldn't be against acquiring him if we cannot land a proven #1 goalie. Mason/Reimer duo > Reimer/Scrivens.
