J.S. Giguere: worst goalie helmet ever?

This is what happens when teams forget to have logos.


It's not that I'm against mask artwork or even the concept of a T-1000 cyborg duck, but Giguere has alluded to a lot of things in his new helmet design without really paying homage to any of them.

The character looks like it's missing drool. Yech.

Where's Disney when you need 'em?

I like it. It actually makes a Duck look evil. I never thought that was possible!

ahahah! I didn't even notice the new mask artwork! Did they have a contest like 2-3 years ago when they did it? It's a little creepy, and I'm not even sure that other half looks like a duck... somehow I keep thinking it's an Eagle or something. LOL.

Whoah there on distancing themselves from the disney oast. Few remember the ill-fated Mighty Ducks cartoon, but this mask bears a very striking smililarity to the characters that starred in it.

It looks like a half mummified dog. Well it beats Raycrofts new mask. And actually this is pretty bad.

Underneath that duck-skin, apparently, is a robotic version of Bowser. Where the hell did those teeth come from?

Sherry said...

Bowser as in Mario Bowser?

Disney is too busy making crappy movies and...reworking their old ones from when they didn't suck. Aren't you so excited The Little Mermaid is coming out on DVD?!

That mask scares the hell out of me. It looks like some sort of evil eagle, not even a duck.

KP said...

No, you're right. That is the absolutely worst helmet ever. The problem anyone who plays for Anaheim is always going to have is that Ducks is simply not a hockey name, a tough name, or even a good name. The fact that removing "Mighty" from the title actually improves upon it might is proof enough...

I guess Earl Sleek has never been bitten by a duck, nor a goose or a swan... They DO have teeth buddy, little ones I agree, but teeth nonetheless.
