No freaking way! We want to continue moving forward, not backward. Wouldn't touch Mason with a 10 foot pole. That would be one very uneven trade. Goaltending has never been the weakest link for Minnesota, so why shoot a hole in it with that guy? Uh-uh.
WOW, just wow. IF the Wild need to slash SOME salary they wouldnt do it by dumping their #1 goalie for a #3 string goalie. (yes, Mason would be #3 at best on the Wild) They would do something with Cullen, Heatley, Bouchard or someone else. Backstrom does not have negative trade value, imagine what Toronto would trade for him.
