    Mason or Osgood?

    I have Chris Osgood as one of my goaltenders. Pascal LeClaire and Tim Thomas are my other two. I know, I'm stacked!!! However, Osgood is playing backup to Hasek now that he is healthy again. Should I waive Osgood and pickup Mason. Mason is playing much better than he did at the start of the season. Actually, his team is playing much better in front of him! He will be getting the majority of the starts for the Predators unless he goes VERY cold again. Osgood will continue to play backup to Hasek unless Hasek goes down again...which is highly possible! Your thoughts and opinions please.

    • You know Hasek will get hurt again keep Osgood and Mason is on a shit team this year he will not help in any way except for the odd win.
      The GAA and Sav% will get killed

    • Osgood is still going to get at least 30 to 40 starts this year. Hasek has a glass groin, if it goes and ozzie is the number 1 permanantly or for a long time your going to be pissed. Detroit is a better team, you have more wins with ozzie back up or start. Detroit is better defensively, even with most losses you still have better GAA and % than nashville. I 'd keep ozzie. Or find another way to pick up mason, drop a weak D, run short for a while. I have 16 teams, in 13 of them I drafted ozzie, and I'm keepinmg him.

    • I think you basically answered your own question.

      It's a toss-up right now. But do you really think Nashville will be winning more games than Detroit? Probably not. Wings or Sens goalie starts are like gold right now. They are the only 2 teams that are heads and shoulders above the rest of the league.

      Mason was hot last year. I know. I had him. I also know he gave me fits because many of his wins were by one goal. The Preds lost Kariya, Forsberg, Timmonen, and others so you gotta ask yourself, how many of those one goal wins would he have won without those guys?
