Poll: Luongo vs Turco


vs
Roberto
LUONGO
Marty
TURCO


At last. We're down to the final two masks and somebody's walking away with bragging rights. I decided to wait to post this championship poll because the majority of you guys drop by on Monday night. I figured I'd take advantage of the blog's biggest night of the week.

You'll also notice this poll is open one more day than usual. Get everybody you know to come and vote. It's Luongo or Turco. You decide! Place your vote and then feel free to leave a comment about how you came to your decision. Tell all your friends to drop in and vote! The more voices heard, the more accurate the results!

Poll opening date
Mon Jun 9
Poll closing date
Sat Jun 14

Pav said...

I'm a huge canucks fan...but i have to admit turco's mask IS better. See, we're not all bias!

Liquidfire3240 said...

Well I hate both these goalies, (bite me :p), but Louongo's mask is better in my opinion

Emo said...

...going with Turks. even though Bobby Lu is my personal god. Interesting that it would come down to my two favourite goalies in the league.

poro27 said...

i wouldnt have placed either of these masks in the top 2 especially not turco's .. but i guess there really werent any AMAZING masks around last season

Brian C said...

why is Luongo winning?!?!?!? i dont necessarily like Turco's but its a hell of a lot better than Luongo's

godsave1thequeen said...

wow this tournament had nothing to do with goalie mask designs

Zach said...

Wow, its already the final? Luongo's mask is better. It has a great colour scheme, and a better design. Once again a unoriginal mask [except for the gargoyles] with the bricks. The gargoyles on Turco's mask appear as if they have a few problems lol
The armor on them is pretty weird.

Mannycakes said...

turco never finds a way to win

krusty027 said...

Man I HATE Marty Turco. Such a smug A-Hole... Luongo's mask destroys Turcos and it isn't even close.

Keep dreamin' Turco you CHUMP!

matt said...

Argh, idiots. Just keep lying to yourselves that you're voting for his mask and not Luongo himself. Tards.

Jason said...

I called it back last poll. Luongo will win simply cause there is a LOT of Canuckleheads in this place.

Nobody stood a chance against him no matter who it was.

I suspect blow out.

Jason said...

This is the final? Already? Wow that went fast. Equally surprising is the final match up. I wouldn't have put either of these past the first round! Guess I'll go with Turco.

Drew Bar-Fridge said...

canuck fan/huge luongo fan voting for turcos mask...the skates sticking down like fangs bug me about luongos mask for some reason

Keven said...

Turco because he has a white & a black version to go with the uni he is wearing !

demondg1 said...

Farce.

Nathan said...

Another nucks fan here voting for Turco's mask. Wasn't impressed when Luongo unveiled that thing. The stick and the skates annoy me. I loved his plain mask with the old Johnny Canuck logo from last year. That was sweet.

Wozniak said...

i cant believe that these are the final masks. i agree with what godsave1thequeen said.

Curtle said...

Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!
You get the picture right?
Screw the flaws. Luongo has Turco nailed to a board like CTV getting the rights to the Hockey Night in Canada Theme...Which Should Still be CBC's!

Dawson said...

I think Thibault has the best in the league, but between these two I'm going with Luongo's mask based on colour scheme alone. The blue in the mask really jumps out at you.... much like Thibault's.

SideshowRob18 said...

the fact that this isnt between Luongo and DiPietro proves that this is all shennanegans...

Damme said...

These are the final two?? Got to say that I'm really really suprised. I like neither of these :/

Mike said...

I am glad to see that some Vancouver fans are stating that they really do think someone else has a better mask.

Although, sometimes I wonder if Cloutier would be winning this tournament if he still played for Vancouver.

Darryl said...

i called it when this tourney began, the gay lumberjack (or gumberjack as i affectionately refer to it) is was gonna win. looks like i was right on the money. for the record, marty biron's lumberjack was much cooler.

Pawscal said...

hmm i agree with everyone who said this shouldnt be the final,
these mask are ugly,
i think either dipietro,miller,brodeur should have won this,
but its all a question of taste anyways,,
voted luongo coz i cant make out anything on turcos mask,

motleybrent said...

We all voted these masks here,so YES this is the final.It just sucks because since we had to declare our allegiance a few weeks ago, it's WAY clear that there are an astronimical number of Canucks fans on here. Very few Stars fans. So we all know that Luongo will win. The canuck fans will stuff the box. Now all bias aside, in my mind Turco is the real winner.

comoxvalleyart said...

Hey... I HATE Dwayne Roloson of the Oil almost as much as I hate Turco and I think he has the best mask in the league by far... but these are the choices and it's Lou by a mile. Granted, as has been said... I liked his previous "retro" mask better as well.

Leafers LP said...

The best mask in the league belongs to Roloson. Luongo just has some stupid lumberjack with crooked feet and holding the stick the wrong way. The gargoyles on Turco's are sick.

Evil Patrick said...

wow, people sure get bitter when things don't go the way they want it to. I hear a lot of griping about how there are "an astronimical number of Canucks fans" voting for Luongo, but according to the popularity poll, there are only 15% of the people on here supporting the canucks, that leaves 85% non-canuck allegiance to v ote however they want, and they have Voted Luongo as best. Tough titty, but that's according to the majority of people, not just canucks fans.

So please stop bitching, because I am so sick and tired of hearing it.

Lance said...

nothing but canuck fans. lame

sabresownu said...

This poll has gone to crap... Miller should be in the top to along with multiple other masks besides these 2.

Luongo's mask is corny and not at all artistic.

iouttakill said...

to Evil Patrick...

ok prince... whine about whining... thats a great way to prove a point there slick. (thumbs up)

jared said...

neither of these goalies should be in the top 2. damn bias on good goalies

motleybrent said...

My apologies to Pittsburgh. I somehow overlooked your 300 votes.

motleybrent said...

Lets see, as of 8:24 pm central time, Canucks fans number 483 in the poll. Pittsburgh is next with 300. No one else is over 200. I stand by my comments. What would happen if we subtracted the number of canuck fans from Luongo's total and then the number of Stars fans from Turco's total. Maybe that could be our barometer eh?

Jennifer Zandstra said...

Considering the number of Canucks fans on this blog, even if Turco has the better mask (and he does), he's not going to win anyway.

Farce indeed.

Scooter G. said...

I'm a 'Nucks fan, but can everyone please chill out with the statements that this is 'fixed' due to lots of Canuckleheads being on these boards? I agree that it might be biased towards top-tier goaltenders, but I don't think saying it is a team vote is fair. The same Canucks fans have yet to vote one of their logos #1 in any of the tournaments!
As for the "gay lumberjack" with the "crooked feet" it is a version of the original Vancouver "Johnny Canuck" logo from the '60's. Nice to see a player try to throw some heritage in there - especially on a team that changes their logo at the drop of a hat.

Leafers LP said...

I know everyone's trying to say chill out and stuff, but masks and logos are way different. Logos are judged with what you see is what you get, and it's pretty clear who's are better than others. I would never vote the Leafs as the best logo in the league, only if they went back to the third jersey logo. However, I love Toskala's mask, most likely because I'm a Leafs fan, as much as I'd deny it. With a mask, there is a lot more art, opening up a lot more opinions. You can easily make any mask look good and give reasoning on why you like it, and get away with it. That, for me, is why it's easy to favour you're own team's goalie. Masks are much more complex than logos, which is a simple, usually one image, design.

caroline said...

I cannot believe these two masks are the last ones standing. Both unoriginal and not pleasing to the eye at all. There are so many other masks out there that should have been in the final two. These masks should have been out long ago due to their lack of uniqueness. I don't even know who to vote for, I guess my vote goes to Turco because Canuck fans will probably have Luongo undeservingly win this round...again.

Zach said...

This poll should've been between Luongo and Dipietro then, I would reconsider voting for Louie's mask. Turco's mask is retarted, the chinese armor on the gargoyles is kinda messed up. The Canucks' should've won the best alternative logo, the updated stick in rink is awesome.

Collin said...

I'm not sure why people are saying that Turco's is unoriginal. He is the first goalie I have seen use that symbolism with the gargoyles. The gargoyles were originally made to look after and protect buildings, while Turco is there to protect the net. Please correct me if someone has done this before. I think its fairly original and unique though, and like that there is some thought behind it.

jon said...

these masks are all horrendous. why do they have to be cartoon panels? why not just keep it simple and have colour tones on there. on tv all the masks look like blotches of nothing, and frankly, except on blogs like this one, you never see them any other way. i vote for no one. cool blog though.

jon said...

correct that. i looked at the others. how ryan miller did not win this thing is beyond me. i think people are voting for star power here.
