Dan Blackburn former Rangers goalie in the early 2000's played with two blockers after hurting his glove hand.

I played with two gloves, goalie sticks are over rated...

Don't really get the feeling they wanted Mason as a starter a few weeks back when they signed him for 1yr. I suspect the plan was always to go with a tandem approach. Any goalie that has to be traded for I think is a waste of assets seeing as we are clearly wanting to at least try Mason out. He is only 25 still, not like he's over the hill so just get a veteran guy for a year or two.

maybe he can wear the pads on his arms and the glove and blocker as shoes. there's no rules for that. we make our own rules! then we break em

Steve Mason was about to tee off on the back nine when Brayden Schenn interrupted with a breaking report.

"Have you heard the news," Schenn asked.

A puzzled Mason had no clue what Schenn was about to spill: Ilya Bryzgalov had his contract bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers.

When it comes to Flyers goaltenders, Mason is suddenly the leader in the clubhouse.
Mason is out doing things with his new teammates?

I don't remember Bryzgalov ever doing that.

Quote:
"You almost hit rock bottom in terms of the way you feel about yourself as a goaltender," Mason said. "It got to the point in Columbus where I was struggling to find my confidence and also, struggling to come to the rink happy about playing hockey."
I pointed out that him being unhappy in Columbus could turn out to be a huge win for us if he likes being here. Surrounding him with a new atmosphere, putting around players he knew from juniors/WJCs, and making hockey exciting for him again could lead to a huge turnaround in his play.

Quote:
"It was an extremely easy team to come into," Mason said. "and feel welcomed."

Example? Mason was invited along with captain Claude Giroux and other Flyers to play in Scott Hartnell's charity golf tournament in Canada. That's when word hit that Bryz was out -- and Mason was in.

"It wasn't a celebration," Mason said. "It was, here's an opportunity and go with it."

Speaking of short-term options:

There is a long list of goalie possibilities, including Tim Thomas. Sources close to Thomas say he was intrigued by the Flyers.

Doubtful. Otherwise they likely would have. We do sort of need a goalie, it's hard to believe Homer didn't call them up and make an offer.

I would have no problem with going with Mason and signing Nabakov as a back up.

I ABSOLUTELY think that Homer would be all over Luongo once Vancouver buys him out.

Homer should sit tight on goaltending until after the draft and see what happens on July 5.

There will be more goalies seeking a team than teams looking for goalies. For once we're in a buyer's market.

Luongo or Schneider. Mike Smith. Halak or Elliott. Emery. Theodore. Hiller.

Or take a chance on a younger guy like Khudobin?

No need to give up picks and players, we should be able to get a goalie UFA or for minor return.
Flyers did contact Khudobin's agent. Allegedly, he is number 2 on their wish list. Offer is in the neighborhood of 2 years at 2 mill per. Can't provide the source.
