I also don't think Holmgren or any of the other 29 GMs are sold on Mason as a starter. He has a ton to prove after so many dismal seasons.
Not disagreeing with you entirely, but Mason certainly has a pedigree for excellence. It's very possible that he became unmotivated and depressed over his situation in Columbus. This gives a legitimate young netminder, with an outstanding history of success, to become the forefront of this organization's goaltending.
