Footage stabilizing and masks.

hi all,
So I have a hurdle I'm trying to jump.  I stabilized some footage in order to avoid animating a mask. However, when I apply my mask, it follows the path of the unstabilized footage.  I tried copy/pasting the anchor point data from the track into the path of the mask, but it won't paste. 
Animating the mask wouldn't be too hard with this particular mask, it if I had a wacky mask later, it would be nice to have a solution.
