HabsVision 09-17-2008 02:30 PM

Why not? I think a vintage look like that for the centennial year would be awesome.... :yo:

mmm not too sure about that.. yeah, i like the vintage style, but it may not be good for him after all, dont remember Fleury had huge problem with his yellow pad, until he changed them to the white one.. wich helps because shooters see less the intentions of the goalie.. imo.. it might not be the case.. but anyway... if he can suceed good for him.

Why not? That would be awesome if he paid an homage to Canadiens goalies in the past. Auction them off to charity after or something.

jnthomas 09-17-2008 02:31 PM

That would be hilarious. I can already see the shooter coming down on him and thinking, what the heck are those ugly beasts?

hototogisu 09-17-2008 02:31 PM

Yeah they're probably going straight to auction after one practice or preseason game.

Ozymandias 09-17-2008 02:33 PM

No surprise coming from a cowboy!

I hope he keeps those for the entire season. Opposing players will be distracted by them, it looks so... out-of-place, how can a player not stop and think "ouatte de phoque?? did I just pop into the twilight zone??"

Canadian_Brewtality 09-17-2008 02:37 PM

a) they could be for the movie
b) practice pads

i highly doubt those are his games pads, they are waaaayyyy to skinny

by those photos anyway

Most likely for the games where the Habs will wear their vintage jerseys.

yeah but i think that's more mental than anything else. It was publicized by the penguins and why not? Anything to boost Fleury's confidence up. If Price can go from white to brown without caring about the consequences, it might make him even more intimidating.

:eek: Do you know if the blackhawks game is one of these games??

Habs 4 Life 09-17-2008 02:50 PM

They are not that bad,I think Josh Harding of the Wild has more or less the same ones

tollb2 09-17-2008 02:52 PM

i love the vintage look .. looks well with the home and away colors

Stradale 09-17-2008 02:52 PM

Saw that yesterday and absolutely love it.

Watsatheo 09-17-2008 02:55 PM

That looks pretty awesome.

emb24* 09-17-2008 03:01 PM

i would bet his game pads are white.

Bumjoo Wang* 09-17-2008 03:08 PM

I like them. I'd say the will look great with one of the vintage sweaters, the team will be wearing over the season.

MM425 09-17-2008 03:47 PM

I like them but I think he should stick with his white pads.

Apparantly, goalies wearing white based pads have a substantially lower GAA than goalies with darker pads. Worked pretty well for Fleury last year.

Iwishihadacup 09-17-2008 03:48 PM

it will only be for the vintage games IMO

Well, it didn't seem to work for Theodore!

I find this kind of funny, considering that some of the league's greatest goaltenders of alltime wore brown pads (take your pick, Dryden, Plante, Sawchuk, Tretiak, and even guys like Roy for some time), and you are just bringing up one example of a recent opinion someone (the optometrist) had about Fleury's pads that has completely shattered the notion of coloured pads for you.

There could be a trend for goalies to wear white pads from now on because this opinion from the Ottawa optometrist seems to have helped Fleury, as he played well into the playoffs. Like all old-wives tales, it will persist despite lacking evidence. At the end of the day, the true determinant of a goalie's play is his technical skills and his mental toughness.

I hope so, i think the last goalie to use these brown horrors was Vincent Riendeau in '87!

Even Andy Moog got himself some real pads when he signed with us.

Blades 0f Steel 09-17-2008 04:04 PM

Price was wearing white pads today.
