We are trying to develop two goalies with no mentors.
I am not upset with either of them, but as you said I have no better feel for either one of them as a true #1. I know both of them feel they should be the #1, they probably don't want to be a back up, however neither of them are ready for the job.
Mason if he keeps playing well will (IMO) get moved at the deadline if any teams are looking for a backup.
Bob is fighting to stay on the roster next year. I think it's 50/50 whether he's back. Could be 2 new goalies next season or could be a new starter w Bob in the wings.
