Bernier is essentially just as much of a toss up as Mason is. He has never started more than 22 games in a season...at least Mason has the experience of being a full time starter.
I agree they should not go all in on Mason, but why give up value for another young goalie when you already have one? I'd much rather see a vet come in that can start 40 games if he needs to and not give anything up. At least in that scenario, Mason can see a future here and play as motivated as at the end of last season.
