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.
Thomas was 11th in SV%, 12th in GAA, tied for 5th in wins. That is hardly mediocre.
