I still don't get why no one has given Steve Mason this sort of contract.

Good deal for both sides. Can act as a mentor to Hart, numbers weren't terrible last year. If he can stay healthy and play 35 ish games, this deal looks good!

When Moose got back from injury, he played his heart out to keep his job. When Cam Talbot arrived via trade, Moose didn't complain. He just kept making saves. Glad for Moose.

Elliot will be better next year I can count on it with Philly's new and improved D core

Because he’s Steve Mason. And he’s retired.

$2 mil for 1 year, perfect contract and we chose the better goalie. Great deal!

Well his last year playing had major concussion issues. He isn't retired yet just left unsigned.

Primed for a bounceback season from this former Jennings Trophy winner. Solid deal!

Only thing I wonder about is if they should sign him to another year or two to allow someone to meet the expansion draft exposure criteria at the goalie position. A 2y/$5M ($2.5M AAV) would have satisfied that.

I couldn't agree more. And what a steal of a contract. Low cap hit and only a 1 year deal. Just gives the Flyers more time to develop Carter Hart a little more and have a proper work load.

I thought for sure he announced his retirement. I guess not.

Good deal for Elliot, 2 mil for a back up goalie is very fair. Will be a good mentor for Hart.

He's gonna provide a solid Save % of around .910 w/PHI, whom I'd think it's fair to say is a below average defensive team. I don't know why EDM, CHI, or even SJS wouldn't go after him. I realize those teams are in a cap crunch, but their goalie stats from last season were abysmal.

HAHA! At best, Talbot gets a P.T.O. come September. He's finished, in my opinion.

A terrific signing for the Flyers. And a nice safety net for Carter Hart, who could very well have a breakout season.

I highly doubt that. Hes just played the two previous seasons with an average of 70 games and had one bad season this year.

He got off to a deplorable start to the season. Much of that can be blamed on PHI's terrible defensive play. And they were really bad. Remember that trip to Western Canada right before the coaching change? It was ugly. I'd expect a big time bounce back season from PHI. They should be playoff contenders...at least, right?

Fair enough. I guess I can see him as a decent #2 on a decent team. Maybe VGK or TOR? Gotta be at league min. in those 2 cities though.
