So we can get some mediocre talent in here instead? This team is starving for superior goaltending. Why settle on average? Based on what we do know about Mason, he's not a good goalie. Based on what we do know about Thomas, he's an outstanding goalie. If you choose Mason over Thomas, you're investing the decision entirely in "unknown" factors.

I also don't think you would bring in Tim Thomas without the expectation that he is starter material.

Edit: He's also not a guy who you expect to ride for 65+ starts a year going on 40, so the org still gets games to evaluate Steve Mason (yippee).
