At least Philly didn't give up anything of real consequence. CBJ get... I was going to say a veteran back-up, but then it's Leighton.

I don't like it, but I can accept it and see what happens with Mason.

Hey, a 3rd! Pretty good deal IMO.

Leighton is obviously a warm body with pads. Bobrovsky either is very happy (the job is mine) or having war flashbacks (I've been here before oh god...).

feel bad for philly fans.. they never seem to get a good goalie maybe in 20+ yrs... they probably would have gotten 2-3 cups in the last 10 yrs...

Lebrun's tweet says a 3rd to Philly, not Columbus.

Probably a mistake

a third for mason ... seems fine. Better than Leights + with a lot of upside. Well there is still Bryz in front of him

A 3rd? Meh. We need every pick that we have to get some decent prospects. But at least we got rid of Leighton.

It is probably a mistake, but his tweet says the rest of the deal includes a 3rd to Philly.

Who knows

Ben Bishop has 36 Career starts 15 wins 13 Losses 3 OTL. 26 years old will be 27 November of next season Career .911 Save Percentage

Steve Mason has 232 Career starts a Calder trophy, 96 Wins 99 Losses 27 OTL Career .903 Save percentage will be 25 in a month.

1 has played for winning organizations his whole career, the other has played for by all accounts the 2nd worst organization in the league.

One got Cory Conacher the other cost a 3rd round pick and they took a cap dump

It's not very good asset management when you look at the whole picture of what could have been.
Nobody really knows what happened. Bob could have asked out...Homer isn't going to sell him out to the media.

The mistake was using him as a starter in 2010-11 and burning his ahl ability...(signing leighton then too).

We got a good return for bob though.

Mason showed great potential.

Good move for Philly, Leighton wasn't really doing anything and a 3rd isn't exactly huge either.

This could be one of those trades that you look back and think that Columbus got fleeced.

On the other side flyers take the 2.4 salary. Dont know how much CLB are under the cap?! Maybe they need the room for gaborik. In this case .. why not sent youre 3rd to philly i hope so
