Even though he played very well, everyone still gave him a hard time saying it was a short sample size [despite always having played well against those same teams].

If Mason plays great this next season & we win a Stanley Cup, I'm fairy certain there's going to be people STILL giving him a hard time saying it was just a 'fluke season' like his rookie season & continue to give him a hard time. What is it u want from the poor guy?
If everyone gives the guy a hard time before he's even done anything wrong, maybe [after playing a really good season] HE won't want to play HERE anymore.

Completely agree - the attitude some fans (seems like most) is asinine when it comes to our players sometimes (I'm guilty of it too).
A change in the way we think about the players may help them here.
