Well in that case it appears he did well for himself on the wife front, speaking from the perspective of a male cat of course.

Also, that mask now creeps me out.

Any word on whether or not Karlsson replaced his ripped from EA Sports generic mask from last year? A Calgary Tower themed one would be great.

Looks like the one that Miska painted last year: http://ingoalmag.com/masks/two-new-m...per-one-retro/ Don't know why he didn't wear it though. Also looks like he's sticking with the all-white pads.

Dubnyk's mask looks like a retro version of what Ranford used to wear. Meh.

I like Smith's Wil E Coyote mask personally

On a related note, I also like how Kipper continues to have the old horsehead logo on his backplate

I may be somewhat biased but for me Kipper's is the best of all of these new masks. A simple design that isn't gaudy like some of the others and will look great with both the home and away jerseys. He may not care about the design of his mask but he certainly has one of the best.

I love Vokoun & Giguere's masks. They have a much more timeless quality to them than something gonzo like Reimer's.

Nabby is by far the best one out of all of them IMO. Steve Mason's and Timo Pielmeier are a close second. Through all of them are pretty damn nice too.

What's with all the talk of Kipper not caring what's on his mask? He has his own style and preference, and he changes it up now and then with different colours. He likes skulls, he likes flames and his mask are always awesome. What more do you want?

Why does Dubnyk's Llamma look so pissed off? Can the half decade of futility be that bad?

IMO of course.
He's had that skeleton on his masks for quite a long time. He's just keeping it on the island, but I'll agree it looked much better with the Sharks.

Even though Bryzgalov, Steve Mason, and Vokoun have the best ones in my opinion, I do like most of the masks.

I much prefer the more plain, blocked out logos/shapes designs that you can actually see and comprehend without needing to be studied up close.

Out of curiosity, there are a couple of trademarked/copy written adaptations, Wile E. Coyote - Optimus Prime ... would they have required to request permission to use them on their masks?

Sorry if I'm not using the correct legal lingo.
