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.
You know who would be perfect for Flyers if they want to see Mason as guy for year but want insurance?



Was perfect in 1B role this past season going 17-1 with 1.94 GAA / .922 Sv Pct and teaming with Crawford to win Jenning Award
