Gustavsson wearing a new mask in practice?

hey guys, I was wondering if anyone who has recently attended a Leafs practice could shed some light on something for me. During a clip I saw of yesterday's practice I saw a shot of Gustavsson and Giguere stretching and noticed that Monster was wearing a mostly blue mask. At first I thought that it could be a new mask for the Olympics but it had a white Maple Leaf near the bottom in the front. Does anyone know if he got a new mask painted? I am hoping that he did. There is so much potential in a mask for a goalie nicknamed the Monster and quite frankly Toskala had one of the best masks in all of hockey so our team is lacking a beauty right now.

Giggy should continue to wear the duck mask til the shutout breaks or the team loses again

Most goalies have a practice mask- he prolly had that one painted a while ago, but dsn't like it as much, so wears it for practice..Goalies are always weird about that ****...

i wasn't too fond of Toskala's mask. I loved Gerber's Leaf mask last year tho. That was pretty.

He's had the blue one for a while now... there was a thread about it a couple of months ago, actually. It's likely just a practice mask, as most players have multiple sets of equipment for various reasons (breaking in new stuff, always want to play in dry equipment, etc.) There was a thought that maybe he was going to go the route of Eddie Belfour and Marty Turco and have a separate mask for home/away games, but so far that doesn't seem to be the case....

I personally like the white one actually... I know a lot of people say it's too plain, but I think the white BG really helps the graphics stand out. The blue one feels a little too cluttered to me...

I propose Giggy keeps his fat pads and his quack cage until his streak dies. Then he can get a Leafs cage.
