Mason belongs in top 50

Joshua Statham, Powell River, B.C.

After picking up your annual Yearbook, I found myself again annually re-reading your list of the top 50 NHLers for that one guy whose name I’m sure I’m just somehow missing.

This year’s player was last year’s rookie of the year: Steve Mason, who led all goalies in shutouts and fought through a bout of mono and a patch-work blueline to lead the Blue Jackets to their first playoff appearance in franchise history.

It’s hard to argue the other between-the-posts peers on your list, but clearly if you listed eight goaltenders among the top 50 players, you would have to include Mason.
