Designer David Gunnarson tweeted yesterday that he has begun the design phase of Henrik Lundqvist's new mask...
...please be bedazzled. Please be bedazzled. Please be bedazzled.
...is it me or does Lundqvist get a new mask when the weather changes? Assuming he'll have a signature one designed for the two outdoor games at Yankee Stadium as well.
I think his next mask should be a complete chrome finish with a brushed metal NYR logo on it. Not only would that look pretty cool, but it could distract shooters too, much like Gretzky's old polished Easton stick.
So unrelated but this crap with Snowden and Russia. US just said they may back out of the olympics... so that would mean Cally, Mac and Step would be resting up during the olympic break
Completely un-related but figured I'd ask. I have a partial season ticket plan in section 413, row 5. I was wondering if anyone else who ahd a partial plan would want to swap tix with me (with the 400s) for the following games within December or Jan. CGY, PIT, MIN, TOR, CBJ, DAL, PHL. I have 11 games for you to chose from if you wanted to swap with me for one of those games. Please let me know. Cheers gents LGR
Not about his mask, but random question about Hank's attire that I always meant to throw out there: The white gloves he wears under his glove and blocker, does anyone else find it weird that he leaves them on when he goes through the handshake lines in the playoffs?
It will be his GQ cover photo with the words "Even as a goalie I score more than you" written in huge letters to distract the shooter. It's a lock. You heard it here first...
Didn't like the last one.... would love to see him just go all blue with the King logo on the sides and a NYR logo on the head... no need to be fancy
As long as he's playing Vezina-nominee level hockey, he can have a new mask for every game as far as I'm concerned.
But add "please be bedazzled" to the list of phrases I never thought I'd read on a hockey blog (though I wholeheartedly second it).
As long as it's not the Prior Stars of Swedish Film like last years I'll be happy. Was it just me or was his last on not just the worst one Hank ever had but maybe he worst in the history of the Rangers?
@FREE LINDBERG where did you read that?
@_Jack Interesting concept of trading Staal, but 1) Sather is not going to get fleeced for a "song" for a 26 year-old defenseman who may be one of the chosen few to play for his country at the Olympics, and 2) the guy who wrote that story clearly has no idea what Staal can do and is just looking at stats. I do think one of Staal or Girardi will eventually be on the move, but I think they'll have to get a young D back in whatever package it is.
@_Jack interesting. i wonder if glen has been talking to the hurricanes in the off season. my money is a YES. they would pay the most im thinking.
@johnnyb3910 They seem to be very tight gloves, almost as tight as medical gloves, so maybe they're a bitch to take off quickly?
@johnnyb3910 I also noticed that. I think he's just still in the zone and is either happy about a win or pissed at the loss to care about his gloves being on or not. It happens all season long.
@FREE LINDBERG agreed.
@FREE LINDBERG Hank is all about the glamor so I expect something shiny.
@FireSather I was never a big fan of the Spiderman masks that Steve Valiquette wore, but i guess goalies tend to be pretty unique characters as it is.
Saw it on the news... US said they would pull out of the games unless Snowden was turned over to them by Russia, and they just offered him temporary asylum. So, the US may not partake in the games, which would make the whole Olympics not even worth watching
I'd still rather move Del Zotto. Trade him for some picks to make up what was lost between the Nash trade and the Clowe trade. With any luck, moving one of them to a team with a better cap situation than us would also move moving them to a team that would end up returning a better draft position than we would have had in the first place.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG the swedish house mafia is gonna be on it haha
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG Ya but I would be totally cool with the swedish Muppet chef.
