UPDATE (4:23 PM): I understand Halak recently debuted a new mask. Unfortunately there are no good photos available yet for me to make a graphic. Plus, I can't change a graphic once it's been posted in a poll. For the purposes of this tournament, you'll have to vote based on this mask.

Although Roy is my favorite goalie, Halak's mask is terrible.

Miller has a great design.

Halak has just changed his mask, though. I haven't gotten a good look at it yet, there were a couple pics posted on hfboards but they don't show much.

Halak's new mask is sick!

Washington said...

i can't even tell what miller's mask is supposed to be. therefore i cast my lot for the evil goat.

Guilherme said...

I'm not satanist, but I rather have an evil goat than a "what is it?"

c'mon, you know people just vote for Miller because his mask is "pure"

Ogre said...

my opinion, but Halak's is a billion times better than Miller. I can't help but think that Miller's is in the lead because there are so many sabres fans who frequent this site.

name is so complex in english, that if spoken correctly, i'd have no choice but to kill you. said...

Halak's "goat image" can easily be traced to those "DOOM" characters.

Miller's design is intriguing, have never seen a yellow & blue buffalo before.

Are you people crazy? While I don't have anything against Halak's mask per say, Miller's is one of the best designs in recent years. The concept is simple, yet done in a very stylistic way. You can tell what it is from far away (the stands) but when you get to see it up close, you can see all the detail and intricacy in the design.

And for all of those who somehow can't/don't see what it is, it's a buffalo head...

Q said...

wow... one of the reasons buffalo fans whine about their current logo is a fact that it is a buffalo, and the team's name is buffalo sabres, not buffalo buffaloes... how come they don't have the same problem when it comes to the miller's mask?

anyways, I think miller's mask is very neat... gets my vote...

iouttakill said...

i agree with dandy... patrick roy is amazing and i pretty much worship him... but Miller is my boy... but living in buffalo hasent been much fun lately :(

said...

Halak's mask is terrible. the only thing that looks remotely good is slovakia's flag.

Jason said...

I see Roy and the Slovakian flag, but what is that up top? It looks like a cross between an old man with a long beard and a ram or something.

Phil said...

I think Halak's mask is supposed to be a freaked-out Yeti or something. Or he's into black metal, which would be awesome even though his mask sucks. I want to see his new one.

Miller's is fantastic, and not just because I'm a raging Sabres fan. I like it because, like the best masks in this league, it makes a blatant statement about the city or the team.

Bruno said...

To answer to Chris about WHY Halak debuyted a new mask, I think I might have the answer, and it resides in the presence of Roy on the mask...

Roy and his son are doing a lot of crap in the QJMHL right now... against none other that Carbonneau's own team...

Grégoire said...

no, he changed his mask before all the incidents with Roy in the QJMHL.
