Let me start by saying I was a huge fan of Not-Chris when he was a junior. He was outstanding at the WJHC in 2008. As we all know, he then went on to capture the Alfredsson Calder Trophy in 2009 after an amazing season. He had 32 of the teams 41 wins. Great SV% and GAA to boot. He was, without a doubt. a future star in the NHL...part of the "next generation"...hell, he was on the list for the Olympic Team....
However, in sheer Andrew Raycroft fashion, his game has gone downhill faster than Jonah Hill's waist-line.
He's now on the bench after 2 terrible (and statistically similar) seasons.
Rumour is he's on the block. He's proven he has the ability, he has the size and movement and has 1 year left at cap hit of 2.9.
My question is pretty simple. If he's available would we be interested and would you (the armchair GM) trade King Lehner for Steve Mason, straight up.
