Steve Mason is still Steve Mason, woof

I thought he was only Steve Mason when he played us.

I can't believe he is still finding a job after eventually stinking up where he lands.

Anyone notice they are being lenient on the faceoff rule they were so strict on during preseason?

Have to compliment the author for including the following aside:

(It's very confusing why he wouldn't just pee in the bathroom if he was already in there doing cocaine, but that's neither here nor there.)

That's a PR nightmare.  

Only for him...he's without an NHL team right now (hard to think that he'll ever play for another one after this, if this incident turns out to be 100% true).

Yeah, that's a pretty good one.  I always wonder what these guys think one they've sobered up...assuming they actually remember the gory details...I did WHAT?!

Connor McDavid is just insane.  I mean goal 1 was just being in right place at right time, but they dominated that shift.  The third was empty net, but the second....the speed and the finish of that guy is just amazing.  He has all the tools of Crosby, but faster.

Connor McDavid is the most dynamic player I've ever watched, obviously Sid was phenomenal when he first came into the league as well but for me Connor is on another level. I've never seen a player with his speed, hands, smarts, and confidence all wrapped into one package, he can do things no one else in the NHL can, it's a treat to watch.

And even those seasons were mediocre. Thinking that Mason is going to come in and solve what are pretty substantial goaltending problems on that team is not smart. Just my two cents.

I just wish he had gone anywhere except to the Oilers.

That awful ownership group / management group is getting a pass because they lucked into McDavid.  Many years of terrible mismanagement are now forgotten.

Yeah I can think of a lot of places I am glad he didn't end up with.

Yeah just that fact alone kind of makes me hate the Oilers now. 

But at least he's not on a division rival.

To be honest I kind of like the Oilers now.  Not for 97, but for Larsson.

Yeah after posting that one I stand corrected, glad he didn't end up in the Metro :lol:

I think it would've been awesome to have him on a team like the Panthers, Yotes, Hurricanes, or even Jackets (metro aside).. though I suppose it's better for the sport as a whole for him to be in a Canadian market.

Agreed. fvck Edmonton. I'm just now realizing how amazing it is to have TWO(Hischier & Zacha) overall top ten picks In your system and they have been loaded in that category since like what? '08?

We can say it was injuries, maybe too young of a roster, but the management there is seemingly off the hook, as it were.

The management group you speak of didn't luck into McDavid. Peter Chiarelli and Bob Nicholson did. They had nothing to do with Kevin Lowe's Milbury-esque incompetence. Now if you wanna talk about that little rat-faced owner of theirs, that's a different story....

He's unbelievable. He has a chance to be one of the three or four best players who's ever lived. I don't throw that type of praise around lightly either, he really has a chance. He's THAT good.
