Nice helmets but they left out some epic ones. If only they would've counted the years after it we would've seen Cujo's amazing Wings mask.

My family knows the guy who did the Kidd mask, as he did a mask for me when I was younger. It ended up costing quite a bit and while really cool, I moved on to try the HM50 L Hasek style cage and have been using it ever since. I love it. I esp love when Hasek finally decided to paint it. That was one of the coolest masks ever.

I think they could've added so many other better masks.

couple of the best ever masks missed.

like these:

and speaking of cujo's masks:

is clearly best of Joseph's masks for me.

one mask that I can't find in google and was absolutely cute and classic is Thibault's Canadiens mask.

I agree, I like Brodeurs mask a lot.

From the list though, my favorite is #6, Eddie Belfour's Chicago mask.

Goalie masks are cool and all but I don't get why some people get stupid things on them (like Hirsch's psycho mask). I've seen everything between Big Bird and Darth Vader. It just doesn't scream "team player" when you have something on your mask that doesn't represent your team. That's why I like Ozzie's mask. Plain red with "Detroit Red Wings" on it. That shows what his passions are.

I like 1997 Sergei Fedorov's white skates because they were so shiny.

Personally, Ozzie's mask is one of my favorites. It sends a clear message- No teeth, no talons, nothing fancy. Just me and the Detroit Red Wings. Mess with the Wizard, and you get every trick in the 83-year-old book.

Gotta say I love Ken Wreggett's Penguins Helmet. Batman Retruns was my favorite of that sequence of Batman Movies and Danny Devito playin the Penguin was awesome I thought so that is a really cool helmet. I also like Trevor Kidd's Flames Helmet, those Dragons are pretty ferice looking. Finally I've always liked Cujo's Rabid Dog Helmet. I have a Street Hockey Goalie Helmet that has that same pattern but instead of a dog it's a Tiger.

Some great helmets, I don't know if I can pick just one as a favroite. I've only seen one goalie in the AHL dawn the mask that I thought up to put on my Ice Hockey Helmet and just haven't yet. It's Jason Vorhees and it was a cool design.

Great find SWF! Belfour's is the best!

Don't forget about Osgood, he's got a sick paint job on his helmet too:

I remember Stefan Liv had some pretty cool masks. I don't remember the site now, though.

Here's a site for many different goalie masks throughout the years if anyone's interested-

The first thought when I read the title of this thread was: Andy Moog.

Many of those bring back memories when the most I could see of NHL was in player cards or sports magazines. Of the ones not mentioned here yet I like Corey Hirsch's, Trevor Kidd's and Blaine Lacher's as the compliment so well with their teams' colours.

Edit: Some that maybe should've been there:

Felix Potvin
Here's an article of Cam Ward doing a tribute to Potvin with his equipment: The Hockey Lister

Stephane Fiset

It's kind of fitting that Ron Hextall had church bells in his mask.
