I personally like Mike Smith's design best. Runner up for me is Scott Clemmensen's.
Props to Stephan Valiquette :P

I voted on this earlier on TSN. Count me in for another vote for Smith. That thing is sick. Plus, I'm partial to lightning (got a bunch on my mask), so it's right up my alley. I also really like Turco's, and Price's new one is pretty slick.

Huet's is #1 for me. Very classy.

Honorable mentions to both Luongo's and Biron's simple but bold designs. I also like Jon Quick's mask.

Hot link. Thanks! Nothing says awesome like a goalie mask. Love the Spidey mask! Also, always been a fan of the mask Toskala sports. Too bad he has turned into a pile of crap since leaving SJ. Of course I am also partial to Flower and Nabby, and yes that is 99.9% homerism. Lotta great masks out there, love seeing them. Great article! Thanks for sharing, probably would have missed it.

Oh, wow, I didn't even realize Lehtonen wore the Heath Ledger version of The Joker on the side of his mask. As a Pav owner I gotta say I hope I don't see much of it this year!

Personally, I really like Huet's mask. I'm a big fan of simplistic design, and Huet pretty much just duplicated the Hawks logo (which is as iconic as any NHL logo). I also will admit that I really like Smith's design. It just looks really cool.

I like his and Luongo's. The team and city theme I think is better than the random this and that in general.

Peske Rinne's looks like someone threw up on it though...:lol:

I've always loved Lalime's Marvin The Martian mask.

I also really dig Jimmy Howard's mask. The mustand and speedometer with the numbers of all the retired jerseys in franchise history is an amazing idea.

I also like Varlamov and Valiquette's alot, and Smith's is pretty sick also.

You'd like Miller's then...I think he has shades of Marvin as well

Naw, that's Lalime's. TSN picked Lalime from BUF, not Miller. Miller has a mean looking buffalo head on his mask (TSN didn't include it in the competition).

Gotta find the article again but there was an article about jersey changes for the upcoming year and it said the Pens were going to retire the powder blues. The Leafs are bringing back some stripes, the Sabres are getting rid of the 'slug' and bringing back the old crossed swords logo, etc. Lemme try dig it up.

I'm probably one of the few who actually didn't mind these jerseys. Not my faves by any means, but i've def seen worse. Nashville's mustard coloured 3rd jerseys come to mind as one of the worst jerseys ever (IMO) along with the buffaslug logo.

I friggin LOVED this jersey! Wanted to get one back in the day, but never ended up doing it. Not sure why it got a such a bad rap... it's not THAT terrible, not compared to some of the other attrocities out there (including some posted in this thread).

Def wanna get a look at Smith's new mask... his previous one was sick. hopefully the new one is as good or better.

I had posted the picture from Twitpic but I guess it's not on there anymore...
