I suppose if Mase could have predicted he'd play so many games and play so well, he'd have just signed a one year deal. I wouldn't doubt he'll be traded before the deadline next year. Glad to have him this year as good insurance.

I remember his first or second game as a Pred. Back in 99-2000 or so. He played well but lost when the puck went up to the rafters and then plunked into the net off his back shoulder as everyone looked around trying to figure out where the puck had gone. I think he lost 2-1.

I thought at the time that this kid was pretty good, but that he was lost in the crowd of other, younger, goaltenders we had and that at his age he'd probably never make the bigs to stay. I felt bad, thinking he was a career minor leaguer who seemed better then that. Glad I was wrong and a few years later he did make it up.
