Recently acquired goaltender Steve Mason believes that he has a chance to be the Philadelphia Flyers goalie of the future.
Mason seemed to need a change of scenary, especially with his troubles in Columbus.This was the quote that Mason gave today:
"My job is to come in here and become the goaltender the organization believes I can be... and that is to be a No. 1 goaltender."
Mason is also rumored to sign a one-year extension with the Flyers.
Does Mason have what it takes to be the goalie of the future? Time will only tell.
Will this news light a fire under Ilya Bryzgalov? It possibly could. Bryzgalov needs a bode of confidence to work with.
What you can expect, however, is a determined player looking for a second chance to succeed and a veteran goaltender to be focused.

Loser: Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers traded Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus last season – and now Bobrovsky is playing so well, he is a candidate for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goaltender.
