mason is one of the best goalies in the nhl, he'll come around even if his team doesnt....whats so hard about managing your goalies? its simple, if masons playing the wings, you might not want to start him....if hes playing the canes you wanna roll him...again if hes playing the penguins....probably wanna sit him....not that difficult people, use your brains.

he's a talented but young goalie playing on the youngest team in the league.
at times he can single-handledly cover for turnovers, blown assignments, weak checking, lost battles on the boards...other times he's not there yet.
hitchcock isn't blaming the goaltending, he's blaming the team.
it's frustrating. pick matchups, and hope the team grows up fast.
He's not one the best goalies in the NHL. He's a second year goalie who had a strong rookie season. There is such a thing as a sophmore slump. I do think he'll pick it up though. And playing matchups is fine, but he's had success and failure against both good and bad teams this season - more failure though. Tough for a young goaltender when your team is not playing well defensively.
I am in the same boat. The hard part with Mason is the inconsistency. Some night s great, some nights killer. Hiller is not bad, but there could be a major goalie dilemma playing out in ANH. Who knows how much playing time he will get with Guigerre coming back. Huet is the starter in CHI and is holding his own. Not sure on Varlomov. I am half tempted to dump him, but Murphy's Law says that is when he will get hot. :)
