Preds re-sign Mason!

A 2 year $2.5 million deal! could this mean Vokoun isn't doing well?

I think this could mean that the Predators didn't want to take a chance on the test results later this month. Tomas goes back to the doctor this month.

I also think this means that Mason will get to play more so that Tomas and Mase will BOTH be ready for the playoffs at the end of 2006-2007.

Good move. We overpaid for him (my guess is that he'd get 900K max on the open marekt). But this gives us an insurance policy to cover several scenarios:

1) Vokoun can't go at the begining of the year.
2) Vokoun isn't his usually self after the injury
3) Vokoun gets injured again.
4) Vokoun bolts when he becomes an UFA next year.
5) Atleat gives us *some* leverage when neg. Vokoun's contract.

Expensive, but what the heck. I'm happy that we have someone that loves the team and is a quality backup. Welcome back Mase!

Awesome, awesome news. With guys like Grahame or Hedberg, we were getting a question mark. We know what Mase brings, and what he brings ain't half-bad. His teammates love him, the fans love him, and he's got a good relationship with Tomas. We probably gave him a little bit more than he's worth, but by the same token, it might be more to thank him for settling for a backup job rather than a starter job somewhere else.

Yeah Mase! I'm surprised he resigned so quickly.

Also, his wife gave birth to their first baby on Friday...a girl.

Good to see Mase coming back. Good on all levels and it seems Vokoun man not be ready at the beginning of the season but the Preds obviously have all confidence in Mason so good for both sides.

And along the same line as Geoffrion and Upshall:

We going to see if Mase can play a little Center when he's not in net!!!!!

I think Handtrick had a "hand" in this signing.
