Steve Mason is the real deal. Although I don't watch many Blue Jackets game, I did see the one he played against the Habs. He looks like Price, with a faster glove. Scary. I won't trade Price for him, but if I had Mason, I wouldn't trade him for Price.
I can't believe that not all the canadiens fans are complete homers.
Well, even Marty only played 15 games at some point...
Look people, not all Columbus hockey fans were born and raised in a Columbus basement; Mason is the real deal based on what we have seen so far. All of the things a goalie must do he does and he has the size as well. I've rarely seen a rookie goalie play the puck better than Turco but he does.
He's going to be a good one folks, but only time can prove me correct.
Oh thanks. Well it looks like Lundqvist, Luongo, Brodeur, Price, and Nabokov have some real competition now It is always nice to see a new goalie emerge, especially with a team like CLB. They are heading in the right path now with Filatov developing in the minors. Sooner or later, Leclaire is expendable and they can trade him for a top-six center to play with Nash. And even if they don't get a top-six center, Brassard is the real deal. I like Columbus now.
THe guy has won the MVP for Canada....I am not surprised with his success. Though, I'm a little shocked [maybe not the best word] on the media coverage this guy gets. He's been stellar for the Jackets, and I certainly wish him good luck.
