Is Steve Mason the Answer In Philadelphia?

from Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post,

“Even the games we lost, he played well,” Holmgren said. “Ideally, I’d like to get a guy that will work in tandem with him, with the bulk (of the work) going to Steve, but we’ll see how that goes.”

Holmgren said he has “a lot of ideas” of whom he’ll target and how he’ll target them, but didn’t elaborate. The only specific player he spoke of is Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, another buyout candidate, but Holmgren said the 34-year-old is “probably not an option.”

Mason came to Philadelphia dreaming of being a No. 1 goalie again and it appears as though his wish came true.

“Since my time started in Philadelphia, I feel confident with my game again,” Mason told the Courier-Post via phone Tuesday. “Going into this offseason, I was preparing myself to come into camp, regardless of who the other goaltender is, to come in and be able to play a lot of games and be the consistent presence that the team needs back there.”

Don’t worry, Jeff Reese will screw him up to and we’ll be back in the same boat again at the end of next season.
