Like I said, the team simply has to commit one way or the other. Either Mason is going to be given a shot to be the guy, or he isn't. You can't have it both ways. Either way is fine by me, as long as it is handled properly.
ok fine I probably did misunderstand your point. Asking the Flyers to handle it properly might be asking for a bit much given how the goaltending position has been handled in recent memory.
Here is the list btw per capgeek of UFA goalies

Assuming Nobokov is going back to NYI the only names that remotely interest me Backstrom and Thomas and even those 2 would only interest me on a 1 year deal(I could live with Backstrom on 2 years) because of the 35 plus rule. but Backstrom could be looking at 6 per again. I guess there is Khudobin but he could be looking for big bucks from the KHL. Everyone else is pretty meh to me at best.
So that leaves what? a trade for Bernier or Miller(unlikely) and hope that Loungo gets bought out.
