I love he freakin' goalies helmets!

Out of those from the link, I'm going to have to say Blaine Lacher's from the Bruins (94-96) is my fav!

Nice link! Thanks! :thumbup:

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.

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've always been a fan of the simplicity of Brodeur's 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.

I knew I'd open this thread and see something about Vanbiesbrouck's bucket... Let's face it... IT'S UGLY!

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

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

i would expect most of these mask designs to be on a broken down el camino or next to a massive purple wizard on the side of a van

I really thought that Conklin's helmet was really cool this year. I love Ozzie and everything but other than the Style of his Helmet there is nothing special about it.

I remember thinking Trevor Kidd's mask was the coolest thing ever when I was a kid.

Now that I'm older I'm more into simple designs. Not necessarily as simple as Ozzie's (though I like his helmet style), but Brodeur's is nice.
