Now that's pretty badass looking.

Does anyone know if he is a comic book fan?

I would assume so.

I like the idea but the final product is pretty weak. Gives me a headache.

I like it, not as much as his other one though.

That Dr. Octopus is great idea and the mask is not bad either. And Manny's pads are sick!

As long as it helps him put up 50 shutouts this season... I'm cool with it.

Though I will say, I still like the wicked graphics on Osgood's bucket.

I like that the color scheme matches the Wings': red, grey/black tones, and whites. I don't like the overall design very much, though. The old English D on the front is nice.

If I were a goalie I would wear the old school Jason style masks like Pelle Lindbergh wore... now those were bad ass. Staring down Jason Voorhees in net on a break away!

i don't know how you could improve on the concept of his old helmet, paying tribute to both motown with the car and gauges, and the wing's legends as the gauge numbers. i just think that's brilliant.

that looks awful



it honestly looks like it's straight out of a 12-year-old's notepad

hilarious.



Got to say I'm not a fan. The tach just looks better.



Looks dumb. The gauges were way better.

Gotta agree with these guys...Looks like crap IMHO; way to cartoonish which there are already plenty of.

The Mustang tach with the retired #'s is the better of the 2 masks - by far!

Now, how many of you that have said Jimmy's new mask looks like junk are comic book nerds?

For me, this is probably the coolest Red Wing helmet I've ever seen. Period. I would also say Jimmy's previous mask was number 2 on my list. It's just different strokes for different folks. I'm a 25 year-old comic book nerd that used to have stacks and stacks of comic books. Dok Ock was one of the coolest villains in the comic book universe... even when the art for him back in the early comic days looked kinda lumpy. For me, I've seen every different combination of winged wheels imaginable... this Dok Ock mask is somthing so far out of the box that I can't even see the box anymore... BUT it still matches the Detroit Red Wing/Octopus theme.

Love it, Jimmy!!! Now stop all the pucks! :3

Maybe each of my fingers is an undulating shrimp! It's a world of possibilities.

I'm a big fan (if I'm reading it right) if the "Lets Roll" on the back. I thought that was on his last mask, or I saw it on Ryan Millers, but overall I like the mask I think it's a cool concept.... And def an out of the box idea. Could be worse he could be wearing a mask like Hillers old mask that was the sparkling weird colored thing.... Now that was a bad mask....

I'm not a huge fan of it, but I'm not the one wearing it.

The tachometer was awesome! Classic, yet sharp.

Did anyone catch Manny's pads?

I remember reading the article about the high school kid that created that design a few years back. I'm surprised they've made it all the way to this level since it seems like such a gimmick.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

In my opinion, it's much better than his old octopus themed one.

Conks had the best octopus themed one, IMO.
