I remember at the time I really liked it. It had a unique look to it with a lot of clean lines and a unique look.
Sure, there was the famous Cujo mask Curtis Joseph would sport, but I think Potvin's lid was unique unto itself.
Let's take a look at it and you can make the call.
Sporting some strong seasons early in his career, he even led the Leafs into uncharted territory by going deep in the playoffs (for reals).
But to me, Potvin will forever be linked with his mask. Immediately identifiable, this bold 3-color look blends the feeling of his nickname - The Cat - and the creative look that is more than just a simple design.
And again, it's just 3 solid colors. Nothing fancy - nothing complex.
Not many tenders today would dare go with something like this.
It definitely will go down as one of the most memorable masks of the 90's.
The back of Potvin's mask really completes the look in my opinion.
Speaking of his career, Potvin carried this look throughout it. Stops with the Islanders, Canucks, Kings and Bruins all showed the same design but just with a different color scheme.
