Ask and you shall receive. I had a request for the Rate My Mask feature and I think it's a great selection.
A very underrated mask, and one that gets overlooked (mostly due to his limited time in the NHL).
"Spiderman, Spiderman, friendly neighborhood Spiderman." If that doesn't say New York, I don't know what does.
Steve had previously gone with the Spiderman theme in his mask, but in 2009 when he added more red to his pads, he decided to go with a new mask.
Maskmaker Dave Gunnarsson decided that in order to add red, he would create a stone wall for Spidey to break through.
The New York landmarks including a Statue of Liberty wearing a Rangers jersey fill out the sides. But it's the monuments in his eyes that add a cool subtle touch.
His number 40 sits on the chin amidst the crumbling rock. A pretty simple and slick design.
While I was designing this mask, I came across another pic that I thought would make a good card.
So here's two for the price of one.
A pretty bold backplate (too bad the straps are blocking it). I like the nickname as well.
Overall, I give this mask some decent points for design, but it doesn't quite have that 'wow' factor for me.
2.5 out of 5
Alright.....now it's your turn to Rate My Mask!
