REALLY, RON HEXTALL? FLYERS MIGHT BRING STEVE MASON BACK??!!

By Michael Clendenin

“Obviously, Steve Mason is still an option for us but we’re going to look around and see what else is out there,’’ Flyers GM Ron Hextall said Wednesday, in an interview with NHL Radio. “In the end we’ll decide what our best option is.”

Mason, an unrestricted free agent on July 1, spent the last four-plus seasons with the Flyers but, over the last two, has been part of a platoon with Michal Neuvirth.

Mason played 58 games to Neuvirth’s 28 this year, but didn’t fare especially well, finishing with a .908 save percentage.

Yet in early March, the Flyers inked Neuvirth to a two-year, $5 million extension — even though Neuvirth also posted subpar numbers (.891 save percentage).
