What do you think should be the design for Peter Budaj's new Habs mask?

Interesting question!

Badaj has had some really cool (and unusual) masks over the years - I think he had ned flanders (of the simpsons) on the back of one at one point! I know he also had something like the hulk on one side if memory serves me correctly.



One of the nice things about a habs player from Slovakia is that their country's flag is also bleu-blanc and rouge! Maybe there's a chance to add a slovak flag at the back of the mask. Even more coincidental than the colours, if you turn a Slovak flag on its side, it looks a little like an "H" inside a "C" :)

As for a theme, though, Id love to see more superhero motifs (not sure legality of that though). The Hulk, the Thing, Colossus (too bad he's russian, not a slovak) etc - anything that looks big, bukly & likely to stop pucks :P

I think it would be great to see a mask paying homage to the goaltenders from the Habs whose numbers have been retired by having the side or back of the mask feature a picture of the retired jerseys of Plante, Dryden, Roy... hanging in the rafters.

Don't think it's been created yet. I think that's the reason for the question.

Budaj should put Halak's playoff numbers as a Hab on his mask. That will be enough to scare a few superstars away in the event that Carey needs a rest :P

It is indeed the same mask, and in my opinion the most beautiful mask I've ever seen.
