First, Ian Clark has done a great job with actually getting Mason to listen and work. Mason hasn't been brutal this year, granted he hasn't been forced to be the starter but his work under Clark has provided benefits and definite improvement.
That being said, why would any team trade for Mason at this point unless they had a contract ready for him that he would be willing to sign as an extension of sorts. Mason will not be qualified by Columbus at $3MM so he'll become a UFA this Summer. He's more in line for a 2-way deal than a NHL contract. I'm not saying Philly may not have been interested, however, I can't imagine that's the case right now.
I still think Mason has a NHL future and he has the skills but needs to continue to get his head in order. He committed to fitness this off season and has been a good teammate this year. He'll be signed this off season but I don't see any team looking to trade for him at the deadline
