      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth

[Extension] Steve Mason Extended 1 Year With Philly

34 posts in this topic

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed goaltender Steve Mason to a one-year contract extension.

The team announced the move via Twitter on Monday morning.

The Flyers acquired Mason last Wednesday just prior to the NHL trade dadline in exchange for goaltender

Michael Leighton and a 2015 third-round draft pick.

Mason has posted an 3-6-1 record in 14 games with the Flyers and Blue Jackets this season with a 2.87 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage.

He played one scoreless period in the Flyers' 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

In his first three seasons with the Blue Jackets, Mason had been a workhorse, appearing in 50 or more games in each.

Originally selected in the third round (69th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by Columbus, Mason's best pro season by far came as a rookie.

Mason would win the Calder Trophy in 2009 after posting a 33-20-7 record with a 2.26 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage while posting 10 shutouts.

In 232 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Mason has posted a 96-99-27 record with a .903 save percentage and a 2.90 goals-against average.

The 23-year-old is in the final year of a two-year contract worth an average annual value of $2.9 million. He will remain a restricted free agent at the expiration of his current deal.

As much as I like Mason's potential. Even if Philly buy's out Bryzgalov, they will still not have addressed their goaltending. They have a very good group of core players, but they need that top tier netminder. Same old story.

sign and trade. I'm not sure how legit is the Flyers are interested in Luongo, but I can see it happening with the signing of Steve Mason, and they package him for Luongo. No joke.

I'd love it if they bought out Bryzgalov

I can see it now. They buy out Bryzgalov and acquire Luongo.

2nd year with Luongo in Philly and Mason steals his job.

Only 23. He could resurrect his career.

Except the article is wrong and he's almost 25

The Flyers did not resign Mason to replace Bryz. The Flyers signed Mason because they have no back up (Even if Bryz is bought out unless Mason plays fantastic hockey they will still be exploring other goalie options).

It was a low risk signing as Mason wanted to play in Philadelphia and signed a 1.5 million dollar extension which was a paycut.

Steve Mason to this extent is a back up calibre right now. He was a product of the HItchock system that boosted up his stats. Since then he's been downright losing starting jobs to other goalies who were not even starters in the NHL. He's so bad, Colmbus made a trade for another goalie last year. He's still young, I wouldn't mind if it was a small package of him plus a couple assets for Luongo. Honestly I rather have him then Scrivens. Once Scrivens play a a year or 2, he will be figured out too. Steve Mason is another young guy good to have that can push Schneider. Maybe I'm dreaming. Dregger did report Flyers were looking at Luongo.
