Brodeur makes change to familiar mask design

Recommended Posts

whoa, this is out of left field...

I'm not sure how i feel about this. The old design was so iconic. But then again, I fear change.

"If it is changing fate, I'll be changing back," Brodeur said with a chuckle. "It is what it is. I think it's just a new start, trying to create something new. I've had some success wearing a Team Canada mask, so I don't see why I shouldn't have success with the new one."

:lol:

But ohhh man I'm SO going to miss his old mask....

I guess his old mask was too big, since he was so fat last year.

He's changing the design on the helmet.... and if it were an attempt at sarcasm (?) I guess I didn't pick it up well... ;)

I like it... Some could perceive it as selfish to put his own initials on his helmet.. but I disagree.. He is the meaning of the franchise.

I think its pretty cool.

for all sports & all athletes, I'm not in favor of personalization. That's just me.

I could go for the "30" but the "MB" is just not my kinda thing.

Marty is pretty big on players marketing themselves (I remember reading something in his book about him not getting a penny for the Puddy episode in Seinfeld). I'd bet this new design is gonna have something to do with the records he should break this year.

And, as Stewie put it....

I Don't Like Change!

call me crazy...but, I like it. I like the idea of change. The Devils are in a new building, with new players and a new attitude. Let the mask be and it will grow on you. :koolaid: however, if we start the season in the tank...I'm cool with tradition. :whistling:

Like the logo, hate the mask. It's a flat-out cash grab. He's trying to capitalize on his impending milestones. The symbolism of replacing the team with the individual is pretty jarring.

This league does a terribly crappy job marketing the players themselves unless your name is Crosby. Everyone else is on their own so I don't begrudge Marty's attempt for some self-promotion. Regardless of what it is for, I think the MB30 design looks amateurish.

I kinda liked that Marty still had the same mask design from when he wasn't sure of whether he'd be playing in NJ or Utica. I kinda liked that not many people other than Devils fans knew the meaning behind that horned and tailed J. I kinda liked that Marty was one of the few goalies who didn't always change his mask, and kinda hoped that he'd still be wearing the same design he had back in his Calder season when he broke all of the records in the book in the coming seasons.

I'm not a fan of this, but it also isn't that big of a deal. The M and B on the mask don't matter as long as the Ws keep coming.

MARTY'S BETTER!!!!!

like I said change is good but he could have left the MB off and just put the 30.

I don't like it on his helmet, but I'd be all for it if the Devils switch this to their primary logo :evil:

It does look cool with the new design, but like the old one better. Just do not know about the change even though the new logo design and everything looks good. If Brodeur does not do well I can see him going back to the old mask. :P I am sure this has to do with his milestone season coming up, but would like to see him wear his original mask that got him this far.

Don't like it. This looks like it should be promoting a website as a mock up, not worn on the ice by the greatest of all time. The MB30 logo i am fine with as long as it wasn't the primary logo on the mask.

If he was going to change the design, he should have just overhauled the whole thing. Something with 3 Cups, his Dad's image, The Rock, Newark, some pitchforks, fire, etc.

Something tells me this will be short lived, i hope.

This is stupid. What is he thinking? Why change such a signature item? For a couple bucks, ridiculous.
