Not bad. I think I like the "tachometer" mask better, but he certainly could have done worse.

Anyone else notice the new RBK practice jerseys too? Slightly different design, and they now have grey as the accent color instead of red or white.

Wow...Jimmy's helmet from last year was one of my fav's of all time. I dont mind the new one but the Tach mask Rocked! :(

How often do goalies change the paint job on their masks?

I would think that some of them are really superstitious.


That's a good question. Guys like Brodeur are notoriously set on their mask design (given he's only changed it once in the last couple of decades). But it seems like the younger generation of goalies are more than happy to try new paint jobs out. The majority of young goalies these days seem to be pretty fickle about their mask designs.

Wow...Jimmy's helmet from last year was one of my fav's of all time. I dont mind the new one but the Tach mask Rocked! :(


Don't worry-- I'm betting that he'll switch back to last year's mask if he has a rough start this season (and based on last year I wouldn't be surprised if he starts out rough).

I'll be most displeased if he's 2011's version of Steve Mason.

I like it!! It's one of those messy-but-it-works kind of designs, and I LOVE the Doc Ock idea. I like how it goes with the Wings' color scheme, too. The tachometer one was classic - clean design, great idea - and it's still my favorite, but I like this one, too.

i must be the only one who didn't like his tach mask. i liked the octopus mask before it better. and i do like this new one as well. the tach just looked like a big dark circle on tv.

Jimmy's Mask

Looks like Jimmy's sporting a new look for the season. I was a huge fan of his last mask design, but this is REALLY cool.

Some pretty cool designs for other goaltenders, too.

I love it, given that I'm a marvel fan already. I like all the hockeytown themed ones of the past too, but I also think it's cool when a goalie shows a little personality on their mask as well.

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.

I don't really like it, but it's not horrible. I'm not really into that kind of thing though. I used to think it would be the coolest job to airbrush masks,and such.
