He's definitely not much better than ML; he might be the same or worse, even. The only fairly lukewarm part of this trade is that unlike Leighton, he might improve some.

Could've just buried Leighton in the minors and waited his contract out. He would've been gone for all intents and purposes. Mason as is also isn't any better then Leighton. The only difference is there's slight potential with Mason. Potential that's negated because he likely won't be resigned and well barely see him play.

Maybe Mason will take a two year deal at $1.5m AAV. I don't expect there will be a lot of other teams offering him more than that.

Daily News column:

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/f...eve-Mason.html

Quote:
Mason was looking for a change of scenery after Bobrovsky took over Columbus’ starting role by force. Mason said he is “just looking for the opportunity to go there and get my game back on track.” He is in the final year of a 2-year, $5.8 million deal.

“I’m super excited to get into Philadelphia,” Mason told Rogers Sportsnet. “It’s a tough place to play, fans expect the most out of their goaltenders. I’m looking forward to getting into a market like that. When you’re playing well as a goaltender in that situation, there is no better situation.”

Mason said he re-tooled his game last summer with the Blue Jackets’ goaltending coach, calming down his style. His save percentage averages under .900 over the last 4 seasons since winning the Calder, but he is still young.

“We’ve changed a couple things, with the depth I’ve been taking off the rush. When your calm, the game seems to hit your sometimes,” Mason said. “It’s definitely a great feeling. With the players they have in that organization, and the history they have there ... I’m really just looking forward to starting off on the good fit.”

Now, with Mason in the fold, it sure seems as if the Flyers have plans to use the amnesty clause on Bryzgalov in the summer. The Flyers would still be required to pay Bryzgalov his remaining salary, over a longer period of years, but they would be relieved of his salary cap hit and he would become a free agent.

How much of a sign is it that the Flyers might be cutting Bryzgalov loose in the summer? Mason is due more than a $3 million qualifying offer as a restricted free agent to retain his rights. With him and Bryzgalov, the Flyers would be spending a franchise-high $8.7-plus million on goaltenders.

He has to be qualified at $2.9M or he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

It's possible that he takes a cheaper deal beforehand, but it rarely happens.

It's not that people are valuing a 3rd to much. It's that Mason has basically no value (since he's a RFA at the end of the season and a stupid QO amount that would be dumb to offer, also other than his rookie year he's been one of the worst goalies in the NHL) and a 3rd has some value. So it seems stupid to give away something for a thing that is worthless.

You realize it's possible for quality players to come out of the 3rd round right? Never mind, you're right, might as well give away every pick outside the first two rounds.

If the Flyers amnesty Bryz because they think Mason will be their solution....well, that would be just about the most Flyersesque thing they could do, actually.

If they are really planning to amnesty Bryz, they better just give him a physical, then tell him to stay home and stay safe. Same for Briere if he recovers in time to be cleared for contact.

Rarely, but as I said, which teams will be interested in offering Mason anything more than standard backup money?

The flyers have thrie own third ound pick. the 3rd round for grossman was the pick from the wild for powe

No matter how he's going to play the rest of the season, he knows no one is going to give him that at free agency. He might just accept a lesser deal with us rather than getting Biron'd.

Yeah, I want Cousins and Ghost to succeed, but at this point they've done nothing.

Again, Read + Mason > Bishop + 3rd

Get a look at Mason this year, and perhaps sign him long-term. If he bombs, it is a wasted asset. If he succeeds, then it is a 3rd well spent. He has talent and size, and is still quite young.

(I woudln't mind a decent goalie coach, though. )

If Mason is on a reasonable deal for what he has shown since hes been in the NHL I will take him over Bryz at 5,6 for the next 8 years
