Wow. If it was anybody but Dreger or Bob, I'd be calling shenanigans. I wonder what the asking price is. Cause I'd love to have him in Calgary regardless of the fact that we have Karlsson and Kipper.

A change of scenery might kickstart his career again

It's really too bad he's with a divisional rival because I'd love to see a tandem of Howard and Mason splitting duties at the same cost.

I can't imagine Columbus is interested in letting him go cheap, even with his recent downturn.

He's played so bad since his calder win, that I bet there is little interest. I wouldn't really want him in Edmonton, unless Boulin was going back (I won't hold my breath there).

Voracek and Klesla also rumoured to be drawing interest

Nah he is not, if you read the link it basically just states teams are asking about Klesla, Vorbacek, and Mason. Seems like vultures circuling around the dead piece of meat. Does'nt explicitly say Howson has put those players out there for trade

Mason is pretty much Raycroft 2.0.

Raycroft also got traded after 3 seasons with Boston (the first year winning the Calder).

He's not on the block.

Teams have inquired about his avalibility, it happens all the time. It doesn't mean he's on the block.

Could he be traded? Sure, but I can't see it happening. Their goaltending depth is weak. They need defensive help for Mason, they don't need to deal him.

As a Lightning fan I'd take him. Let him learn a few things from Roli while backing up this year and take the starting job perhaps next year.

Wouldn't happen though, Jackets probably would want top picks, which SFY won't be trading.

ZERO value at the moment.

The kid needs to work on his mindset and game preparation in the summer. It seems that he's been called up too early, like so many BJs before him, and he is now ruined.

Columbus really needs to work on their player development. Not every player is a bulletproof, self-starting superstar like Rick Nash.

Either that or they need to somehow aquire more bulletproof, self-starting superstars like Rick Nash.

I'd have no problem dealing him. This organization has never had success with waiting for players to hit their potential. If someone wants him and his 3.2 million, deal him. I know he's still got a bright future, but I'm not sure he can get there with us, and if you can get an asset back you have to pull the trigger.

i could definitely see the Devils being interested. gives him a chance to play with his hero Brodeur, and hopefully he can bounce back and be our franchise netminder. the asking price would more than likely be very high, so that may take them our of the running but i am very confident Lou would at least be interested.

I'd wish Murray give a shot @ him.

Kuba, Wick/Butler & 3rd??? I dont have a clue what his value would be. Shined as a rookie & last 30 game of 2009/10 and litteraly sucked in the 1st half of 09/10 & 10/11

I'd love to see what he could do in Ottawa. He's certainly an upgrade on Brian Elliott and Leclaire (thankfully) won't be back.

I never get this argument.

Mason won ROTY as a 20 year old... how could that have been "too early"? He's just a cocky SOB and he needs to get slapped in the face with reality.

The only Jackets that were ruined by being rushed were Brule and Klesla. That's really about it.

Columbus may not be the NJDs or the EDMs of the league, but the team isn't all that great either.
Perhaps the reason why Mason is faltering is because the whole team is playing too poorly for him even to have a chance to steal games for the team.
Maybe a change of scenery will do him good.
And hopefully, save his career.

People are selling Mason short. He has tons of Value.

He plays in the toughest division in Hockey, and he does so behind one of the weakest defenses in the league.

Well of course Voracek is drawing trade interest. But it's not like we're just gonna give him away. If he's drawing interest, it would be part of a big deal.

There will be a lineup of teams interested in him. Tampa, Ottawa, Philly, Jersey, Oilers and perhaps the Leafs would be at the front of that line.
