I agree with the Homer part though.
Mason finished with a like .940 sv% down the stretch but Bryz also played well in his final game (when Mason and Bryz were splitting games) he had a like .930 sv%. I'm not saying the defense made Bryz have a sub .900 sv% for the year but they sure didn't help his struggles. The team in general played much much better the final 15 games or so of the season finishing 10-5.

Very true but if the rumors of the Wild and Leafs being in on him are true, his value went up, as value is a relative term. With that said I really hope the Flyers play this smart. I don't want to say that I don't want the Flyers to peruse a deal but I feel like whoever gets him will greatly overpay (relative to his value in a vacuum).
