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.

Adding Thomas will be an experiment of its own.
1. Thomas was very good his last season.
2. Mason has succeeded at virtually every level and has the tools to succeed here too. He's young enough that he can turn it around. I'm not convinced he will turn it around but for 1.5 mil I'm inclined to give him a shot.
3. Flyers have a very promising goalie that is still several yrs away. I see no reason the Flyers should give up valuable assets when we may already have the answer in our system. I'd much prefer to wait but thanks.
