Steve Mason signed to a multi-year extension

Quote:
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6-4, 217-lb goaltender Steve Mason to a multi-year contract extension, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Mason, 25 (5/29/88), was acquired by the Flyers from the Columbus Blue Jackets on April 3, 2013 in exchange for goaltender Michael Leighton and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. In 36 games this season, Mason has posted a record of 19-11-5 with a 2.48 GAA, a .917 save percentage and one shutout. He has gone 17-4-5 in his last 26 appearances since November 2.

Flyers get a bit of protection in bridge deal but Mason still gets a healthy raise. Good deal for both sides. His next deal will be bigger

Like this deal for Steve Mason and the Flyers. Cap is going up, totally reasonable number for a guy who has played like a real No. 1 goalie.
Source: Frank Seravalli, Philadelphia Daily News https://twitter.com/DNFlyers

Quote:
Mason, 25, does not have a no-trade feature in his new contract.

When the deal kicks in next season, Mason will have the 14th-highest salary cap hit among goaltenders. His $4.1 million cap hit will be less than half of Henrik Lundqvist's league-leading $8.5 million. Cam Ward ($6 million) and Kari Lehtonen ($5.9 million) - two goaltenders with significantly worse numbers than Mason this season - will both earn more. Mason will be in the same neighborhood as Winnipeg's Ondrej Pavelec ($3.9 million).

On the other hand, other goaltenders like Antti Niemi ($3.8 million) and Craig Anderson ($3.1 million) will be earning less, but they'll also be due extensions next season.

The salary cap is also expected to rise to the neighborhood of $71.1 million next season, making Mason's contract extension a low-risk move. In other words, by the time Mason's deal is up in 2017, others will have signed larger extensions, probably not even keeping Mason among the league's Top 20 paid goaltenders.

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 10m Now if only the #Flyers can add a stud D-man to help Mason....

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 11m Considering that Price signed a 6 yr deal for $6.5M per year in 2012,#Flyers got a bargain with Mason (3 years, $4.1M per).

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 15m This is not a knock on Bryz _ who I like _ but the locker room is so much more cohesive with Mason.

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 17m Mason's attitude makes him one of the most popular players on the team. That should not be overlooked. He adds greatly to team chemistry.

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 17m Mason, who will start tonight vs. Isles, has good numbers, and is a GREAT teammate who takes responsibility for his play.

Sam Carchidi ‏@BroadStBull · 22m I thought Mason would get at least $4.5M per, so Flyers did well. And Mason gets security of knowing he is here for 3 1/2 more yrs.

He was fantastic to start the year, but now I think he's just been meh for the last while.

If it's anywhere near the Price money he wanted, I'll go ballistic.

Unless it was an absolute steal of a contract I would have waited until the summer. His game hasn't been strong of late.

I'm still hoping it's 2-3 year deal at most.

Hartnell aside, Homer's been decent on the resigning front of late. hopefully he keeps up the run.

I agree this better not be a heavy contract the guy has proven absolutely nothing yet. This is going to be bad I can feel it no need to do this now unless its 4 and under and a short length deal 3yrs/10 would be good but its probably higher knowing homer

Dumb, why would they sign him after over a month straight of bad play? Wait to see if it's just a bad streak or if this is what you can expect in the long run. Should have waited and it better not be for too long at too much.
