dipietro's is too busy, sure its a tribute to POW's and MIA's. but hiller's is plain and simple. and the gold cage is cool!

Not sure that the artist that did Hiller's mask was a friend. NFG I say.

I think Hiller's mask is nice from the side, but if you look at those other pictures of the front of it, the stripes all along the front look really dumb; however Dipietro's mask is one of the worst masks in the league, it looks like a child addicted to stars designed it. I know it has meaning, but i'm pretty sure we are supposed to be ranking them based on appearance and his mask just looks way to busy. All and all Hiller got my vote, just because i dislike Dipietro's mask so much.

Hiller's mask is kinda boring, but dipietro's mask is just awful. One of the worst in the league....

Hiller...

Ok. I have a question. How are the same people that voted the Montreal Canadiens logo Best Overall (and rightly so) managing to vote for the worst possible masks of all-time?

Every single poll seems to have the hideous mask dominating the not-so-hideous mask in votes.

In fact, I have yet to see mask art on here that does not induce vomiting.

Unbelievable.

I love DP's mask. One of the best in the league. Very recognizable. And the added meaning behind the art says a lot. Hiller's looks like a gradeschool student designed it. There is something wrong with too simple sometimes.
DP's mask wins by a long shot.

I like Hiller's mask... At first, I disliked the orange stripes, but the more I've been looking at it, the more I've been liking it... It is a very strange, yet very interesting approach...

from an artistic stand point DiPietro' mask is by far superior. it took an excessive amount of skill to do that and have it not look like patriotic vomit. that mask is the closest thing to an actual work of art as i think we have in this tournament.

i do like Hiller's design. the stripping is cool, the colors are great. what throws me is the actual Ducks stuff on the sides. it kills the whole feel of it.

out of the two masks, i chose DiPietro's for the artistic merit of the mask. DiPietro's mask gives you more to look at, more of a visual impact. Hiller's (even though i like the idea) leaves a lot to be desired. it doesn't help that someone with an airbrush and some kind of masking material could reproduce Hillers mask

ricky D is representing the whole Nassau Veterans thing on his mask... not to mention that its a tribute to his gramps or something who was a vietnam veteran ... either way its cool but i thot Hiller's was just a nicer mask .. those stripes are unique and cool looking

I love the striping on Hiller's mask; it's original and esthetically pleasing. Also I like how the mask kind of tells a story as your eye moves. The Ducks symbol and word mark are obvious but you have a nod to his homeland with the swiss symbol as well as his new home with the inclusion of The Pond at Anaheim and the palm trees. Then you have the symbols of luck or fortune with the zodiac sign and the Kanji.

I agree with how 'emo' described DiPietro's mask before; like a flag vomited all over it.
