It's always good to hear how much of a worker a player is behind the scenes like Bob was and Bryz wasn't.....it's a testament to being a professional.

yah Giroux gave Mason a really glowing review the other day in his presser..

basicly saying how Mason never gave up or *****ed players out when the season started as a disaster.

really gave you a sence the team has well and truely behind Mason as the man going forward..

I know it's been only, what, 20 some games he's played since coming here? But Im sold on Mason as our long term solution in net. Now that doesn't mean I'd go and throw a Bryz like contract at him, but I'd be good with a 3-5 year deal. He's been nothing short of fantastic behind a defensive unit that has no true number 1. Really makes you wonder what the hell happened in Columbus. He was thrown into the fire at an early age. Whether he just got content and stopped working hard, or whether it's the BJ's piss poor ability to develop players, or both, he seems to have found himself again.

I really don't think this is another Leighton situation either. Unlike him, Mason has the pedigree.

I think mid year Holmgren will lock him up to a 4 year deal...maybe 4/16

I hope he goes with a deal more like 3/11 to give us flexibility.

That's what I'd tell Mason and his agent.

Agreed, also needs to continue to work on his glove hand.

I'm not a goalie coach so I don't know. But I'm sure there are drills and such to improve. If you watch, he is a little shaky on his glove hand.

Not being negative, my opinion.

Bob was demoted to the press box after getting yanked in the playoffs and having a poor attitude .... pretty unprofessional

im happy with our goaltending .... so happy that long gone are the days of Esche, Biron etc etc etc ......

quite a shame, if only Emery would have stayed healthy in 2010 ..... UGH !!!


clearly Mason is the #1, and we've got a great #2 in Emery

Mason since coming to the Flyers:
Games: 22
GAA: 2.05
Save %: .936

Bob won the Vezina with these stats:
Games: 38
GAA: 2.00
Save %: .932

He's backed up that with a 2.88/.907 in 17 games this season.

You are ridik.....yeah that is why when he was traded Holmgren said they were getting a committed professional (you'll love his work ethic). Stop your drivel....

It was well documented Bob did not want to be 2nd fiddle or play in the AHL. I think it was NHL or Russia for him when they signed him over. That's why he got paid what he did.

I could be wrong though..

Well documented? He didn't want to play 2nd fiddle..that is correct but not sure about the NHL vs Russia "ultimatum?" Is that substantiated?

As far as having some bad attitude..completely laughable and the "meltdown" was a product of Lavi being a freakin ahole and not knowing how to handle a rookie goalie. He contributed to that hiccup as much as anything. Funny how people who blindly defended Bryz with all his faults personally and professionally will hang their hat on one understandable incident that Bob supposedly had and not all his doing.

Flyers botched Bob's situation in many ways...not the other way around.

He is still a very good goalie even if not putting up Vezina numbers like last year.

you are ridik ..... as if Homer would say "yea, we just unloaded a guy who said "Physically I'm feeling normal. Mentally... not really. But I'll get over it soon." - Bobrovsky after getting yanked in game 2 of the playoffs after pooping the bed .... the comment which landed him in the press box ..... I'm glad we dumped him after his awful 2011-12 season, too"

Any GM would sing the praises of someone he just traded ..... nobody wants a reputation of trading guys with no value .... they all say "its a tough decision, but in order to get value, you have to give up value" etc etc etc

Bob had a poor playoff [though i felt yanked too soon], was sent to the press box after showing zero fight & had a god awful next season.

i like Bob, happy he had a good year last year, happy he and CBJ are struggling this year [Div foe] and am THRILLED with our new tandem ...

You defended Bryz last year when he was playing the worst hockey of his career.

Bob's numbers in Columbus were unsustainable behind that roster. I think everyone expected him to fall back to earth a little bit this year. He's a good goaltender who was overwhelmed by the pressure of his first playoffs in 2011.

It's nice to see Mason starting to get noticed around the league! He has been awesome.

An interesting article about how he now breaks down a game into segments-
