V for Vancouver? V for Victory?
How about V for Vile?
That's Roberto Luongo's goalie mask these days.
Going for that 'retro' look, Roberto's got a swing and a miss for a mask.
I don't think the finesse of the ultra-cool Johnny Canuck on the top of the mask blended with the bold pinstripe Canuck colors forming a 'V' in the front go together well at all.
Gotta love when the Reebok logo sticks out like a sore thumb. Ouch. The only other item on the front of his mask is the Canucks' 40th Anniversary logo on the chin - boring (although it's better than the captain's 'C' he had earlier).
If he wanted to go bold, then take a page out of Chris Mason's mask with the Thrashers...
Now that's how to do a cool retro mask. Bold, bold and more bold.
Luongo liked the retro look ever since coming to the Canucks (only a couple versions garnered decent marks from me), but his masks from previous teams really hit the mark.
The Islanders and Panthers really were choice teams for Lui to get creative with his masks (and he needed it with the lack of winning he'd experience).
Remember the Pink Panther days? Now that was fun stuff. I miss that Roberto... bring it back.
Not much else to say...even Luongo himself doesn't have much to add in this video about his current mask design.
I give it 1.5 out of 5
