"Mister Equipment" Arturs Irbe:






Hasek is my all-time favourite player. Here are his Ottawa and Buffalo masks:



When Hasek was in Buffalo around '95 I used to have my walls covered with his posters. There was a poll of the greatest goalie ever in NHL.com and I was amazed to see that he wasn't included. Brodeur, Roy, Hall, Sawchuk, Esposito, but no Hasek. How many goalies have won Hart and Pearson trophies twice?

"Finger-pointing is easy. In some cases, even therapeutic. Fans need to blame something,

because the outcome is so frustratingly out of their control."

I'm sorry but I don't like all the chaos on goalie masks. Conklin's octopus and Dom's Wing/wheel design is one thing because it represents the team. But Kill Bill and Darth Vader and demons are going overboard. If I were an NHL goalie I would much rather be plain and simple and wear my team logo than have all this meaningless stuff going on.

It's rather telling, isn't it?

The paint job on a goalie's mask is the individual goaltender's attempt to bring his personality to bear - what HE likes/enjoys/finds important. What HE is all about.


What does Oz have on his mask?

Just the Winged Wheel. Unadorned. Solitary. Proud. On a field of red.



Guess Oz knows what's important to him...

It's their expression of themselves and their tastes... Similar to anything in the DIA...is it all really needed? no. But is it nice to look at? yes

Masks can do more than that.
Josh Hardin's sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and Josh wanted to do something to help bring attention to the cause. (You can read all about it at www.fundthefight.com) Here are some pictures of his mask..



And a throw back to old goalie masks..

I'm with you... I think the "simplier is better" works better. Brodeur's is a great example. Some of those mask designs are way too busy.

As for Ozzie's equipment, I thought I heard on TV last year that Paul Boyer was using a contact in Russia for spare cages and helmets for him.

I recently heard an interview where they said Osgood has a backup supply of the older style mask including a couple they got off e-bay. They don't make that style any more and Osgood wanted enough to last the rest of his career.



good old ebay.
