... about Frenchy's mask
I'll say this, this mask sure seems different than the ones he's had in the past.
Love the article Blake-thanks-this actually clears up what we were discussing in the past week about Frenchy's mask having flames on it: "Komets goaltender Kevin St. Pierre (nicknamed
Very cool article. It is good to see mask painting has not gone up with inflation. I think I paid about $500 for my last one back in 1992.
For anyone who loves looking at goalie masks, check out this site. It will be well worth it!
Great read. Have any better pictures of the mask that you can zoom in a little closer?
It's easier to see in the actual paper.
Blake how are you enjoying your couple of days off? ;-)
is it days off if he's still here? lol
I think he is afraid to leave us alone!
with all the people that blog not naming names *ahem* hit somebody i can see why he wouldn't want to leave lol
Very interesting article.
I'm glad this form of expression came back when the birdcages started to disappear. There were some great designs worn by NHL goalies in the 1970s ... Gerry Cheevers' stitch design, Gary Simmons' cobra, Gilles Meloche's Cleveland Barons design, Mike Palmateer's Maple Leaf design and one of the greatest masks ever, Gilles Gratton's lion.
Jeff, check out the link I posted above. Most of those masks are shown.
Thanks for the Mike Palmateer reference! The most acrobatic goalie of all time.
My favorite NHL mask was Beezer's mask while playing for the Florida Panthers. It was awesome!
