Mason's contract is at $2.9 million and RFA. Assuming the Flyers qualify him, the value of the qualifying offer cannot >15% less than his previous contract, which in this case implies ~$2.5 million.
Either way, with the other cap issues this team is having, I read this situation as either a 3rd round pick for an audition period (in which case Bryz is gone) or a 3rd round pick for a temporary backup
IIRC, it's not a qualifying offer if it's a straight up contract offer. They can sign him before the offseason to a lower cap-hit+salary, I figure.
