Who said Howson's excited? If I were him, I'd be pissed that all our other goalies were injured and I HAD to call up a 19 year old kid to cover in case of ANTHER potential injury.

BTW, most of the thread (i.e. trading Pazzy, sending Mason to the AHL) was either a joke or people looking for information. I can't remember this happening before to the Jackets so it's new to me. Bottom line is this: Mason is not allowed to play unless Norrena gets injured. If he does play, that's very bad for the entire organization. Assuming nothing happens to Norrena, Mason goes back to juniors after Pazzy gets over this virus he has which is probably in a couple days.

Hell, dress Modin for backup goaltender if that's the case..... Just kidding of course....time for Jacket fans to lighten up a bit....

I said earlier that we'd call him up to place him in Syracuse, but later this evening I remembered that he isn't allowed to play in the AHL.

This move is simple, Norrena needs a back up and we don't have a healthy one in the pros to call up. When Pazzy gets back, Mase will be back in Kitchener. I think it's excellent timing, Mase will be on such a high from the World Juniors and his trade to the Mem Cup hosts. If he actually does see playing time (i doubt he will) I guarantee he will be playing out of his mind, with how pumped he must be right now. At very least I consider this a reward for him.

EDIT: Robert, are you all right? Seriously?

Just fine, just because someone doesn't think it's a wise choice to activate Steve Mason to back up Norrena shouldn't be mis construed as being "not alright". In fact, what is the implication of your question anyway?

Not just this thread man, it seems lately you just have so much hatred built up.

You seem to not like Howson at all, amongst other things.

Under MacLean who knows...but Howson is not a "PR stunt" type guy.

The fact is the Jackets are out of goalies, nothing more than that.
Out of goaltenders?!? So the team doesnt have any other very short term options for goaltenders in the system left with just a couple injuries. I have to think there is more to this then meets the eye.

Our ECHL guy is out, and so is our AHL guy. One of our NHLers is also out, so yeah, we are out of goaltenders.

This is simple- Norrena needs a backup and there aren't any backups, except for Mason.

Too easy.

Your off topic now....the point is, there are other options for a backup to Norrena. As for rewarding Mason, this is the NHL and a team who has struggled for 8 years and seven seasons to make the playoffs. It is not a venue to reward a teenager for a good performance in the World Jrs..... I want players with more experience than Mason at this stage of the season.....

Mason will have his day, now is not that time....imo of course.

That's my thinking as well..... Should I ask, "are you alright"?

You're right, why do I give a ****? I can't even answer that question. Maybe it's because you are becoming throughly bizarre in your posting. Anyway...I'm done caring.

Everybody knows this isn't a permanent thing. It's just untli Pascal gets healthy. Barring an injury to Norrena, Mason won't even touch the ice. Sitting on the bench doesn't take experience dude.

Now, tell me some other options Robert?

If Pascal doesn't get healthy soon we are indeed in trouble....

He is a SYR goalie, No NHL contract, and I believe that Puck-Rakers is mistaken in assuming he is an option, unless he is signed.

I haven't seen him listed on the Jackets website or on http://www.nhlscap.com (both list all players within the organization). So I think it was a mistake by Puck Rakers and he's not available as a call up.

Exactly. Great summation.

Puck-rakers made a mistake.

Speaking of Goehring, he couldn't even get a job in the AHL, he was signed to a PTO when Pops and Munro went down. He doesn't even have an AHL contract yet, let alone an NHL one.

Contract limit? If we are in such dire straights with contract limits that we can't sign an experienced goalie during a once in a lifetime playoff race we are in trouble.... One thing I like though, everyone is confident Leclaire has moved past his injury issues....I'd say we need him back pronto, and pray Norrena doesn't get hurt.

I think we'd have to sign Goehring for the rest of the season with the minimum salary if we wanted him to be backup. Even a two-way deal would make him quite an expensive backup for one game. Much better idea to call up Mason since it's possible.

And that's what several others are saying.....what I'm saying is that few knew how vulnerable our current goaltending situation was untill Leclaire's recent illness.... And Mason is not the answer. If our goaltending depth requires a guy from the Jr's to be called up then somebody better take charge and sign some experienced goaltenders...

I can see it now, Leclaire is out sick for two weeks, Norrena pulls a groin and Mason tends goal without a backup.... come on, if our depth has no healthy goaltenders more experinced than Mason then you go out and sign one regardless of the cost....crazy....

Come on, Robert, until Mase plays in an NHL game, I think it's safe to assume this is a quirky situation with a bunch of injured/sick players and one player not under an NHL contract, all at one position. Fluke until I see otherwise. Yes, depth at the position might be an issue, but when you need an emergency callup it's probabkly an emergency. Can't just sign a guy off the street in that short order. Why is my post so long on this topic? Yikes!

He sucks but I liked him, bigtime headcase.....for the contract experts out there can we give him a practice tryout....

Really folks, if we only have two pros, Leclaire and Norrena capable of playing goalie at the NHL level then god help us..... Howson must get on the ball.......this is the NHL where some fans are paying thousands of dollars a year to see their team...

They deserve better....
