Maybe our team should think about psychologist. IMO Mason needs him, because I doubt he forgot to save.

Interestingly enough Saul Miller, the hockey psychologist who wrote this book listed working with the Syracuse Crunch in the 2002-2004 time frame.

Maybe it's time to bring him up to the big club...

The worst part is that GMSH was so sure that Mase would return to form that he signed him to an extension.

Which means they'll be paying him $3.2M to sit in the AHL next year, unless they get lucky and somebody takes a chance on him. Great job, Scott.

I just hope that he will be trade in the Eastern conference, so I can see him play more often. This guy is a phenom to watch. He is simply amazing. Also, I hope for him that he become good again.

The only thing Steve Mason will be saying two years from now when a mic is in front of him is "you want fries with that?"

One day, when all his money runs out, it might come to this...

?? Is this a joke?

I'm glad you want him to be good again and all, but, really? A 'phenom' and 'amazing'?

The thing is...........

Mason will go somewhere else, get his stuff together, play lights out, and win a cup. All this well before the CBJ makes a play-off run.

With the history of this team, that is exactly what will happen.

People keep saying that about Jackets cast-offs like Zherdev, Brule, Filatov, Leclaire and so forth, but has it actually happened?

Meh, I'm not concerned. Similar things were said about Zherdev and Filatov. Nothing came of it. I'm sure people were worried about Jake, he's pretty much on par with what he did here. There were some that worried that LeClaire would get it going. Didn't happen. Klesla is still Klesla. Hejda isn't worth the money.

Outside of Ray Whitney, I can't think of many that made me regret moving them.

My post was meant more tongue in cheek.

Kind of the whole CBJ mind-set thing.

I hope Steve Mason has a "Tim Thomas" story. He is goaltending for a team that sucks, and often goal tenders are the ones blamed for everything because they are the last line of defence.

Tim Thomas is not the Bruins' goalie that comes to mind when I'm thinking of Steve Mason.

No, it wasn't a joke, he is really spectacular to watch. But if I was a coach I would be nervous that have him as my starter in the net.

I'd trade a 3rd rounder to have Tim Thomas in front of our net for a couple of years.

Tim Thomas has had a lot of adversity in his career to begin with, he was in europe most of his career, and look at him now! Hes won he stanley cup!

so I still think Steve Mason can recover and have a great career with a different franchise

I think it's possible that Steve Mason will be a better goalie in his late 20s than in his early 20s, as long as he's able to stay in the game.

Mason did NOT have a lot of adversity early in his career, and he has NOT been relegated to Europe thus far. Again I think the Bruin goalie you're thinking of as relates to Mason is:

Howson was on the NHL network show at 5:30 yesterday and EJ Hradek asked him about Mason and Howson says something along the lines of "We still believe Mason can become a great goalie for us" and I think EJ had to stifle a laugh after that

Give props to the leaders in Boston for realizing that Raycroft was going down and trading him while his value was still high.

It was painfully obvious two seasons ago that Mason was treading down the same path, but instead of trading him while he still had some value, Howson signs him to a garbage contract.
