not signing someone who is capable of taking over for Mason in case he falters would be a mistake IMO. If you are buying out Bryzgalov and Vancouver is buying out Loungo then you have to check and see what Loungo is looking for. After him the market is pretty slim on the FA market for goaltenders.
So in the you cant bring in Loungo because you want to see if Mason can be the guy argument who do you bring in? Dan Ellis? Chris Mason? Michael Leighton?
Yeah there is the Read for Bernier rumor and I am not sure that rumor is credible.
I would hope if Bryzgalov is bought out that Holmgren has a backup paln in place for a reliable goaltender to go with Mason. because right now based on the eye test Mason cant be trusted long term when the games start counting and the pressure is back.
