I was just thinking back to a post I made several years ago about the country club culture. Basically I named a bunch of players on our team that I thought were part of the problem. Nash was on the list, among others.
Now I'm thinking about that same list and they are all gone (note Mason was not on the list, but should have been), except one- Steve Mason.
Get rid of Mason and the purge will be complete.
Then go get us a top forward line and we are set.
I'd get rid of Mason ASAP.
I'm not a big Bernier fan, but I think he wants out of LA because he's hungry and wants to prove himself. Like JJ, the change of scenery might do him good.
Same thing for a certain wing sitting in Anaheim who has been the whipping boy while guys like Ryan Getzlaf have gotten a free pass. Even I'd consider applauding Howson if he got rid of Mason and added Bobby Ryan and Jonathan Bernier before camp starts. If he did it without giving up Johansen, even better.
