As for trading away prospects, you get what you pay for. If Holmgren wants to rely on two reclamation projects like Mason and Thomas, both of whom had mediocre seasons the last time each played, he'll be right back in the same situation next summer as he is now.

What would you suggest he do at the current time? I'm guessing overpaying for 1 year of Ryan Miller? I think we'd all prefer to have a Lundquist, but that guy isn't out there. They made a bid on Bernier but the Kings preferred what TML had. Have to make the best of the current situation while you wait on Stolarz.

And for the record, Thomas has a .920 SV% in 2011-12, so I'm not sure how that constitutes "mediocre".
