From Hockey I/O

His tender groin permitting (and he says it’s no problem), Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will be wearing a new mask when he skates into the abbreviated 2013 season Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The mask arrived at Price’s home Friday by courier from a workbench down Highway 401, delivered at roughly the same time the goalie was receiving treatment in his team’s clinic.

Price’s new lid is not a rainbow of colour nor a hard-shell canvas of outrageous artwork. It doesn’t feature country singers or rodeo horses or even a motorcycle-riding angel of death.

If the stylishly crowned Price has ever worn a “classic” look, this is it.

There is absolutely nothing fancy here – just a predominantly white helmet with a large Canadiens logo on the right side, its mirror image on the left, Price’s No. 31 in the middle of a C on the chin, and red, white and blue half-logos on the top.

Sometimes, the simple ones are the best looking ones.

Remember when goaltenders were defined by their one famous mask design? Even when Ed Belfour or Felix Potvin got traded, we still recognized them from afar.

This latest trend of changing mask designs like we change our underwear, is lame if you ask me. And that's not pointing a finger at Price alone. A lot of our current goaltenders have ADD when it comes to their masks.

I think it is so much cooler when a goaltender has a theme. Even if he had slight modifications put on it from time to time, it would be better than going all 'willy nilly'.

Ed Belfour's mask has been my favorite since they first day he wore it.

Exactly. Slight evolution of the same basic design is cool. Even Aebischer's Avalanche mask and Turco's Dallas masks were like that. I'm sure there's some more but those 2 stood out to me for some reason. Oh, Nabokov's sharks masks were like that too.

Nineteen years, and the only real change to Marty Brodeur's mask was taking the J tail off in favor of the MB30 logo a couple years ago. Even then, it was his brother's doing, and he was just like, "Eh, why not?"

You weren't alone. I can tell you that. A LOT of Devils fans groaned at the change.

In this case I agree, that's a great classic mask.
