Mentioned this in another thread, but I think in 3 months, someone's going to make a thread with a poll asking who our starting goaltender will be after the trade deadline. Emery is the better of the two, bit I can't imagine someone better won't be available in February. If this team is fighting for a playoff spot at point, Holmgren's job is going to be on the line, so he's going to have to make a move.
Emery may be the more accomplished goalie, but I don't think he's better, at least for this team. Positionally and mentally, he's good but he moves slower than Bryz. Slow goalies will not do well on this team. Mason has the agility, is bigger, and has great puck handling abilities which is going to help our breakout.
I think both goalies are good, its the Flyers D that lets them down all the time. Homer needs to make some trades this season and bring in a couple of strong Defensemen, Flyers have a lot of talent up front to dangle as trade bait.
I'm a strong believer that a strong defense will win you a Cup.
both of our goalie looked decent-to-mediocre to be honest, but I think Emery showed more flashes of good than Mason
But it's really hard to gauge since the players in front of them didnt play very well
Mason seemed more mobile at least.....although I'm not sure I've seen anything to suggest he's turned a corner from his inconsistent ways. He has been average just like Emery has been average in various aspects of their game...
It had to be Mason. He needs to be the goalie of this team. RFA at the end of the year and is our property, new scenery, and still young. He needs to be given all the confidence he can get that it's his net and Emery is here to help him into that role. Emery won't be upset, I love his attitude now. How so much can change in just a few years is unreal.
