Let's go guys-- tell me who has the worstest mask in the whole universe. Hand-painted minor league masks by children are eligible. I remember at one point that my brother asked me to airbrush his mask when we were kids just because I enjoyed painting toy soldiers (and still do-- 'cause I'm a NERD)... the problem? I'd never airbrushed anything before. We killed that little project at the design stage. laugh.gif

We'll have a NHL category (prospects will count here too) and a minor category that lets us sneak some really goofy stuff in... like the next mask I found on a blog post about bad masks:


WTF? Really? Politicians on your goalie mask? Unless that's Palin's daughter's mask it's just stupid. That is an excellent airbrush job by the artist, though, just a silly concept.

And here's the scariest thing I found searching google images:



Oh, and this one makes baby Jebus cry:

The Thrasher's goalie has Rikku from Final Fantasy 10 on his mask. That's hilarious.

Obviously the third one is Vampire Gandolf, which makes perfect sense. Geez.

The first one above is definitely the worst, others around the league that I just flat out don't like are Ray Emery's mask that displays a boxer, and Khabibulin's mask featuring two regurgitating pelicans and a clock tower. Giguere's Terminator Duck is just dumb also.

Osgood's mask sucks too. He could at least scribble on it with whiteout or something.

I think that Emery's mask is cool - and I think that the league should have gotten off of his back about having Iron Mike on there.

I thought the third one was David Lo Pan from Big Trouble in Little China or something... which would be equally mind boggling.

Actually, that would be a pretty sweet mask. Lo Pan with his minions... or just this guy:

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Think I read somewhere that his Saw mask was part of a promotion and he was paid to wear it. I wouldn't be surprised to see more advertising in goalie masks in the future.

It was a promotion for charity.

I agree with Osgood's mask being the worst. Its actually terrible and I cant stand that he still wears the circa 1980's cage. Johnson's mask as the backup in Pitt is also pretty bad. I mean, I love Zeppelin as much as the next classic rock fan but its a bit over the top

I think that's actually pretty damn cool. If he had Tidus, Wakka, Kimhari and Yuna on there as well, it would be epic win.

The Nascar one is terrible, as well as the "Vampire Gandalf" LOL

The Kings/Hollywood one isn't too bad of a paint job, plus as others have said, the theme fits.

Also, who the hell would get Sarah Palin painted on their cage?? (And I'm not even talking anything remotely political, more about relevance to anything)
