Mason has been a winner at every level of hockey he has ever played. there are people in this world who just don't know how to lose and he is one of them. ship ward and keep mason.DO NOT TRADE MASON NO MATTER WHAT!!!
i realize my c's and rw's are weak and i have lubo to replace any d that i lose cuz i can just move a centre into a util spot assuming ii get vinny. should i maybe trade ward and mason instead of mason and thomas?
SHI!T no, wideman was +32 and had 50P and like 50 PIM's to boot last season and i will bet he will be a huge producer again. he has been having career years every year for the past 3 seasons. trade mason straight accross for a top C he is worth it..... there is tons of time till the season starts so dont do anything crazy right now.
What's his goaltending situation like?
I wouldn't give up Wideman with Mason for Vinny.
If he needs goaltending that bad you could always offer him Ward straight up for Vinny, or toss in Blake or pronger instead.
Good trade for you. Who would replace Wideman from the FA?
Vinny could be a 90 point player this season. With him and Getz you have very strong centre's and you can definately spare Mason. Plus I doubt Mason is as good this season as he was last so you are selling high.
I would try and sell Koivu for a depth RW like Hemsky or Havlat.

It's a good trade for you - but really you should be looking for something else.
You DESPERATELY need a good RW.
Getzlaf is good enough to carry your C position.
Having said that - if you can't get a good RW - take the trade. Vinny will be hot this year and when he gets hot trade him for someone like Iginla. You may not be able to get Iginla now - but later on you could use Vinny to pick him up.
*Iginla just being my example RW
