I don't think it will work out, at least not as well other options. I guess as a backup to Mason it wouldn't hurt if his contract isn't ridiculous, but at 39 or whatever he is and not having played in a year, I would imagine that a better bet would be one of the UFAs out there. I guess on a one year, low cap hit deal, it could be low-risk high reward situation. But it could also leave the team in a position it was in this year where the starter never gets a day off because the backup is so bad. I don't know what Thomas has been doing over the past year, but he is very reliant on his athleticism IIRC. A 39 year old that hasn't played pro hockey in a year is likely going to lose a bit of that athleticism in that time.
