Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team H2H...
And I quote:
"Mon, Nov 16
The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Mason is suffering from back spasms.
Advice: Mason has been replaced by Mathieu Garon as the No. 1 goaltender. The back spasms could be a reason why he has a robust 3.67 GAA this season."
Please say I can drop Steve Mason and pick up Pekka Rinne and not regret it later!
I'm going down with the ship, or at least waiting till Christmas to decide for sure. Mason was my best player in his rookie season, there has got to be some of that still there. (I am, though, in a keeper league).
quoting from where? I read the Dispatch every day. there was a report about back spasms, but it didn't say the rest of that. silly.
"Blue Jackets goaltender Steve Mason is suffering today from back spasms, such that a goaltender might be recalled on Monday to serve as Mathieu Garon's back-up against Edmonton.
Mason was returning to Nationwide Arena this afternoon for his second dose of treatments, and was feeling mildly better."
here's another one:
but there is a long article about filatov possibly returning to russia.

well lets look at it this way. while battling back spasms he was the 2nd worst ranked goalie in the league. he now has announced he has back spasms and will be out until they heal. depending on how things go he's either going to be out a couple of weeks or months. also depending on how the healing process goes he could come back after a few weeks and hurt himself again.
i'm really apprehensive on dumping him but i also think keeping him at this point is kind of a waste of a roster spot. i'm not sure what i'm going to do but i'm thinking of dumping him. look at atlanta they're goalie has been out forever with back issues.

I would need this, as I own him in 3 out of 4 leagues. And I own Ward AND Mason in one of them (the strange thing is that I am in first place in that league).
I am also thinking about dropping Mason for Rinne. They were really close stats wise last season. But I will be patient and wait one month or 2.
