I think if the Flames has had a Steve Mason last year when Smith got hurt they still could've made the playoffs, and Smith is only getting older. If he's cheap, it's worth looking into. Mason has been a starter very recently.
There’s like zero parallels between our situation and ANA’s. ANA let Hiller and then Andersson go and handed the reins to their young goalie in Gibson. We may mirror them in a year or two if we hand the reins to Rittich or Gillies. But yeah until then our situations are completely different.
