Yeah, yeah, yeah... but did you see the Grim Reaper? Looked like a new page in a coloring book.

Yeah I don't like it, it almost looks like an outline. Why not just fill it in?

A goalie with skulls on his mask got the Flames to game 7 of the Final. A goalie with skulls on his body should definitely be able to win it.

I look at that tat and all I hear in my head is the opening riffs of "For whom the bell tolls".

Bad Ass.

And even after this comment there are still people who don't seem to get it. That is a large piece of art. I can't wait to see the finished work. I have 2 sleeves and to sit through that piece would be ... well like torture .. and pleasure at the same time!

There is a TON of work still to be done on that piece. To bitch about it now seems ridiculous

If Parsons is as determined to stop pucks as he is to get this wild tattoo - then Kipper 2.0 might just be on the way!

No, after that comment everyone was being sarcastic. Whoosh.

I think it's more the placement of the tattoo on his back. It's right in that dip.

Last time I saw a goalie prospect as solid as Parsons, it was Carey Price.

No pressure Tyler....none at all.

The second coming of CP would be a hilarious swing of karma on team lotteryball after all the arrogance and good fortune. Staples and Spectors butthurt columns could replace the comics section in the newspapers for daily humour.

I wonder what the symbolism is for him. This is a pretty dedicated piece that must have some meaning for him. Graveyard, sands of time and reaper, maybe make the best of life before your time runs out?

Will be interested to hear if if he gives background on it

NHL Tonight did a run-down of the top 10 goalies in the league and then included a list of "5 for the future."

Parsons makes the future list at #5:

I have seen nothing of Parson's before and don't really know anything about him, but that video makes me feel excited for the future of this group.
