Yesterday a magazine name InGoal Magazine reported that Ilya Bryzgalov's gone out and gotten his mask touched up by the artist Griffe Originale.  

New team. New mask. We get it. 

What you're looking at is an ocean of oranges, whites, smokey greys and blacks all gorgeously transitioned together around two logos of tigers....

....yea, tigers.


People are asking, "Why a tiger?" I'm not too sure myself, but does it really matter? What ticks me off is the BAUER logo across the forehead covering up a portion of the Flyers crest. BLASPHEMY!!!

Don't get me wrong, I love the Bauer brand. In fact, I prefer their equipment over many competitors. But streaking it through the middle of our revered Bullies stamp is like putting a hairy male midget in front of a naked Sofia Vergara.  < ----- hummina hummina hummina hummina hummina hummina.


But whatever. If a couple of Asia's monsters on Bryz's head are gonna help jot down 10 shutouts and complete a regular season with a 0.950 SV% then more power to ya, Ilya.
