You mean like Vokoun?
Think Vokoun would have resigned in CBJ like he did in Pittsburgh prior to Free Agency? I don't. He's 35, and is probably looking for that Cup now. Which is why he signed for 2 years to be a backup in Pittsburgh. He wouldn't have come to CBJ to look for a cup.

This Phoenix fan agrees whole heartedly. LaBarbera has not been good. I think with Burke and Smith guiding him, Mason could have a great turn around playing for Tippett in Phoenix.

Howson needed to get a goalie in CBJ last year, but he wasn't smart enough to do this. Mason should've been in the AHL last year to at least try get a confidence boost, now you are in the same spot with him.

Nah, for the most part you know you need to score at least 4 goals to win when he is in net.

CBJ beat writer claims no interest in Vokoun last year or this year. He's coming off an injury and sounds like he wanted to play for a winner. As for your Nashville deal... no chance. Lindback for Ottawa's 2nd. Brassard isn't getting moved for Lindback let alone add a 3rd.

To be fair, Hunwick didn't even make one save. He really has no business in the NHL. He lists at 5'7" but that's probably being generous (I think he's closer to 5'5")

Desjardins is an UFA and Dex should be resigned.

So you're advocating Hunwick as the CBJ #1 and Mason as the #2 goaltender?

Not sure what the Islanders gain by moving up, but they have a ton of goalie prospects.
I had suggested this on the CBJ board. Nilsson and #4 for #2. Not sure that works for the Isles but that would start to help with our goaltending depth. Biggest challenge for the CBJ is going into the season with an unproven starter. There needs to be a veteran not named Sieve Mason (see what I did there. ). I reallly like the Isles goaltending depth. Better get one early because I think the value only goes up.

Given all of the options available I actually want Luongo depending on what Vancouver is asking. Luongo is great but the contract at his age is scary. This way the jackets can draft a few goalies to develop while Luongo plays 5-7 years as the starter.

You clearly haven't seen many CBJ games. about 2/3 of the way through his rookie year teams figured him out. He thought he was "the man" and decided training and listening to coaches was a bad idea. He's been brutal for almost three years now. THREE YEARS!

He would be awesome on your team though so if you send us a 2nd we'll make sure he arrives safely.

I still think Mason could be a solid goaltender someday. I just don't think it can happen in Columbus. He seems to be in desperate need of a wakeup call and nothing the CBJ has done so far has provided it. I think tossing him out on his rump may just be the thing that makes it click for him. Unfortunately there's no way to do that and still keep him.

And? Hunwick is a great story but he needs to earn a contract. Let him sign a two-way and start in the ECHL. I'd love to see him do what he did at Michigan all over again but why should he be on such a pedestal?

As for Mason, let him earn his spot too. Personally, I hate his attitude and the fact this kid has talent but no head. I don't see how you can change the lockerroom culture and have Sieve Mason remain as part of the team. If you can't move him, let him challenge for a spot but if he doesn't earn it, waivers it is. I'm in the minority but I think you buy him out. Saves money and moves a terrible team cancer.

Hardly. I'd rather have Mason as the backup, York, Dekanich and Hunwick in the AHL and/or ECHL, and whatever starter-quality guy we can get our hands on as the starter. (Harding might work.) Recall that a significant portion of this discussion had to do with getting guys for the AHL.

Wouldn't mind swapping Mason's and Dekanich's places on the depth chart either, but I'm not sure if we can safely waive him. (Of course, that's not going to be a consideration for the Mason Is Tainted With Horrible Failure crowd, but, well, y'know.)
