Bryzgalov's "New" Mask vs. His Old One.

Well, I promised awhile ago that I was desperately seeking pictures of Ilya Bryzgalov's Olympic mask.  When I saw his Olympic mask,  I could have sworn it was the same mask he sported all of last year, as it looked pretty basic and similar.  Well, I was wrong.

Bryz's ( Bryz'z ? Bryz' ? Bryzzzzzzz?) new mask is mainly maroon, like last year.  But upon further review:

The first thing I noticed was the grafitti-style 'Bryz' on his chin guard, which I find pretty sporty. The electricity theme also stands out up close, but is a bit difficult to see from the stands. Also, you'll notice that on each side is artwork done by his kids, then painted on.   The giant Coyote logo is on his forehead once again, only covered by tape at the Olympics.  No Russia mask, just a new Phoenix Coyotes mask.

Now his 'old' mask ( or the mask he used through 2/3 of this season) is something I personally liked a little better. It incorporated more black, and was a little more flashy, IMO.

Tons of color highlight this mask, with a coyote howling at the moon on the left side, and a desert landscape with a road sign by his right.  I love the addition of blacks, grays, and different shades of red.

So there you have it, I suppose.  The question is, 'Which one do you like better" ?
