*yawn*. Sorry, never been a fan of the Chuck Norris stuff.

It's a creative idea, I'll give him that. But even Chuck Norris can't help him with the team he has in front of him...

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

lol, thats pretty funny :D
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Fail. Maybe 4 years ago when the Chuck Norris crap was only slightly annoying, but now it's just fail.

Thank God. Good to know I'm not the only one...

Genius. Stars win the Cup and Lehtonen goes 82-0.

I quit. It's been fun being a Wings fan. This sport is officially ruined.

Yeah I thought this fad had passed. Isn't Betty White the new hip-washed-up-celebrity? He should paint her on his mask.

I think even Chuck Norris is sick of them. This died out long ago. Let it rest in peace.

Lehtonen likes to do things associated with the city/state he's playing in. He had Ludacris or something like that on his mask in Atlanta. I don't think it was his idea either, he let the artist choose something iconic for the state. This is probably the same thing, although Patrick Duffy might have been more appropriate. Then again, was Kari alive when Dallas was on TV?

Nevertheless, nice mask, outside-the-box idea yet actually somewhat related to his region (Walker: Texas Ranger). I still appreciate the Chuck Norris jokes too. It's better than Kill Bill.

Meh.

Jimmy's is better.
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

The Clint Eastwood mask is way better done, if those are the same artist, his work has gone downhill.

For those of you complaining about the Chuck Norris mask, at least he didn't go with this one:
