Mason vs Ellis

I don't follow the Preds too closely, but I like Chris Mason. I was wondering if any of you Pred fans think that Ellis and Mason will split time the rest of the season or will Mason get the majority of starts, with Ellis just getting in on back-to-back games?

Seriously, what's the deal. I have Ellis on my fantasy team. I know Mason is good, but it seems like Trotz is giving Mason much more attention than Ellis. As this point I feel their equals... its almost like they want Mason to step up and be the number 1, but they're not giving Ellis the same shot

Ellis is now officially the back up ... Mason has played pretty well since Ellis got his last shutout as has the team in front of him

the coaching staff is defiently giving mase the advantage, which puzzles me because he's still giving up incredibly weak goals. He had two last night and he got lucky that the team in front of him responded so quickly to both of those he let in.

Basically, we prematurely signed Mason to 6 million dollar contract extension. Yes, they want Mason to step up and be the number one.

You hit it right on the nose. Mason is the #1 for this reason.

This is not fair for Ellis. He gets a shutout and then has to wait like 2 games before he can play again. Then when he does he has a great game but still wont play the next one.

Isn't Ellis better this year? Makes no sense... if you want to win games, play Ellis.

Its just the way it is guys, sorry about your fantasy teams...lol Mason did get a shutout tonight. They are paying him #1 money and he'll be the main goalie and get the majority of the starts unless he falls apart.

Although they did almost make it sound like Trotz was saying a rodeo canceled a game here, but of course that didn't happen here and he was talking about somewhere else.

got to see the game on versus last night- well, the first bit of it

Mason reminds me of a Tim Thomas of sorts- in that they both always seem to battle to stop the puck.

I meant this as a compliment.

In the beginning of the year, yea Ellis was better. But right now, Mason is better.
