There's certainly not much in it (if anything), but I personally think Mason is the better goalie at this point and I watch a decent amount of Lightning hockey too.

In fairness, if I were trying to acquire Couturier i'd be trying to do exactly that too.

You on about the guy who got Mason for a third, Coburn for Zhitnik, Carter for Couturier, Voracek and Grossmann and also Downie for Talbot? You mean that idiot GM or another?

People can say what they want but Mason has been Philly's best player this year and he's been awesome.

Bishop and Mason have both been great this year for their new teams. No need to slam either one.

I do find it funny that this thread title is still up yet in the article, Mendes clearly states that there was no better offers than Conacher. Oh well, seems like everyone wants to jump on the Couts bandwagon now.

Oh man as a Flyer fan I am some thankful this trade never happened...especially with the emergence of Couts this year....however, Bishop is a great goalie...its not like that would have been a horrible trade but with us getting Mason on the cheap and with him playing so well, the Flyers did well not to make this trade!

If I remember, the deal that the Flyers reportedly offered was Rinaldo and a pick. The sens wanted Couturier. I doubt they were ever close to dealing Couturier for Bishop because evidently both teams' valuation of Bishop was far apart.

I think I remember that as well.

Maybe a mod should change the thread title to "Flyers almost traded Zac Rinaldo for Ben Bishop?"

As a Canucks fan, I would have given up Schneider for Couturier opposed to that #9 pick.

I dont believe it was close

Homer probably inquired about Bishop, and OTT asked for Couturier, so then Homer said no then went after Mason instead since the asking price was much better. I remember hearing the Flyers offering Rinaldo and a pick and The Sens wanting more, so nothing happened.

Mendes has little to no credibility

I don't understand this whole situation. The take Conacher and a 4th, but would've taken Jones and the Oilers 2nd, but also had Couturier potentially?

Wonder what else Murray can leak to the media.
