Quite “stealthy” in that Chrome finish..   perhaps put that finish on the Goalie pads and blocker and he can reflect the lights into the eyes of his opponents..    

    ... they’ve come a long way baby,.   Mr Terry Sawchuk

This image is photoshopped. It's an amalgamation of several injuries over his career.

 

But Sawchuk was known to have played completely black 'n blue and covered in scars. Absolute nutcase and an amazing netminder.

 

 

 

As for Marky's new mask, it's shiny and silver like Lord Stanley's cup. May he raise it this year.

Love it, looks like a winner. Nice touch paying tribute to his Dad.

He had some horrific mask designs but this is by far the best mask I've seen a Canuck goalie wear.

 

 

....So contract talks are going swimmingly?!??

I love this mask, a huge upgrade from his old ones... especially the horrendous “ears mask” one and the split tone.

I like it.  When they keep it simple they have a chance at almost stacking up to the old masks of the 70s and 80s.  Steel look is pretty badass.

Folded steel look... Jacob ' Swedish Samurai' Markstrom.  His best mask by far!

That mask looks expensive. I think he will need a new contract in order to pay for it...  

 

Marky told me he wants to stay in Vancouver and play here forever, just like Petey...  :)

I like the use of chrome for the cage and highlights of the mask. I've generally always been drawn to the really blingy helmets with super reflective cages and designs. It is the one piece of equipment where a player is allowed to make a real statement. Might as well present yourself as the king of your crease.

Always thought Luongo should've had a silver mask.

 

That is one hell of a nice mask.

I have no doubt he will resign.   Maybe even taking a pay cut too.  Vancouver stuck it out with him when he was a mediocre goalie.  A lot of guys have loyalty to the team that stood behind them.

It should also not just slide by that he is practicing in Sweden right now with real shooters and a goalie coach.

 

He will be more ready than most goalies coming back for the playoffs.

I don't know man. The Orcas are looking in the opposite direction, could be a metaphor....:P
