I'm sure that'll be cool with most people, the tachmask was awesome.

That said, Doc Oc should make a good ornament.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

On an interesting side note, I went to a dinner tonight for Season Ticket holders with a friend who is one, and got to talk one-on-one with Howard and Ericsson. I asked Jimmy what he did with his old mask, and he said it was officially retired. But then he said that the Doc Oct one is a back-up and that his real new one hasn't arrived yet. I then said, "You're probably not going to give me any hints as to what's on it, are you?" and he replied with a smirk, "No, sorry, you'll just have to wait until next week to see that one." :P


I was starting to thinking he might just been BSing me about the new mask. :lol: Can't wait to see the new one.

I LOVED the tachmask, so I'm glad he's going back to that mask... also, goalies are very superstitous creatures and he wasn't exactly lights out in the preseason with dococ, so....

I'm glad. The Doc Ock one was interesting, just not quite Wing-ish enough for me. The tachmask is one of the best masks I've seen.

Guess Doc Oc lost here too.

Hopefully it is better than the last one. Not that I really care, but I didn't like it.

Howard's Doc Oc mask was unique - however I really didn't care for it; the Mustang tach mask IMO is much better.

While we're on the mask topic - anyone else think McCollum's is pretty nice?

I gotta say, I thought the DocOc was pretty cool actually, but you can't beat an instant classic - The thought behind the TachMask, the tie in to the Detroit auto industry, the tribute to the greats to wear the Winged Wheel and the overall artistic excellence that went into that mask made it instantly one of my top 5 masks in NHL history in my mind... just look at it, I mean, come on!

The Doc Oc was pretty cool, but I"m glad he's sticking with the tach mask. That one is pure awesomeness.

If Miss Wing Queen is correct, i guess we won't see last years mask... if i was a goalie i would toss it up all the time... retiring old ones (cheesy doc oc ones too)...i just like the idea of a revolving door of different s*** on a mask, then if people requested you bring one back, you could do that!

So... um, what happened with going back to the tach mask? Don't get me wrong, he's looked great through 2, but still...

Howard's new mask arrived Monday. Designed by Ray Bishop of Grand Blanc, it is similar to last year's, featuring Howard's dream car, a 1967 Shelby Mustang, and the retired numbers of franchise greats Terry Sawchuk (1), Ted Linsday (7), Gordie Howe (9), Alex Delvecchio (10), Sid Abel (12) and Steve Yzerman (19).

Bishop incorporated the Detroit skyline in the new design and removed the tachometer.

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...
