This was not the only interview that gave me the sense that for him, it's all about him.

Every subsequent interview he just seemed a little creepy to me. It might be that he's just a knob, but I got that Phoney Phil Mickelson vibe about him and that will never go over well in a hockey dressing room, even given the leeway goalies get to be weird.

I would love to be wrong, and that he's growing up finally. We need him to.
Bryzgalov had his bags packed & one foot out the door at that point.

I rather have Mason have some confidence & set his goals high than do the opposite but that's just me. I don't need to be fed generic BS by players all the time.
