The only qualm I have is the amount of rebounds he gives up, though he does seem to be able to direct them to the corner more than he does the slot.
Many of Mason's rebounds are off his waffle board ( blocker), i think he has the best blocker hand in the NHL, he uses it very effectively to direct the puck out toward the boards for our wingers to take it up ice.
