Design Backstrom's Mask Contest

maybe it's kinda old for you guys but...

http://wild.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id...id=DL|MIN|home


I know It involves kids but I'm curious to know if anyone's participating here.


I think it's a great idea by Backstrom for doing that. I'd have participated if I could but unfortunately, I can't.


Also, I'm sorry if it was talked here before.

That's actually pretty cool. Thanks for the head's up. I don't think anyone on these boards is under 18, though. All of Backstrom's masks have been horrendous except for his bear claw through the top one last year. I especially disliked his eagle on one side, bear on the other mask. Just looking at it makes me feel like naptime after I just ate a big Thanksgiving meal. Every other one looks like an NHL 10 generic team mask. I could see someone get really creative and then have their kid fill out the form. A bit off topic, but do you guys think the Wild will eventually have their green thirds become their main uniforms like so many other teams have done? I think if someone designed a mask to go with those it could look pretty killer.

Too bad I'm only a kid at heart.

Definitely gonna be either "the logo mask" or the "Twin Cities skyline" mask. As for me, I'm pulling for the Paul Bunyan and Babe mask, but only if it's untouched. Opposing teams will be terrified of those cloud horns on Babe and by Paul's seething, evil grin.

I especially like that on the left side they have Paul and right side they have Babe but then the top view version has them switched well done kid.

Can't see any of the finalists. Wild.com really needs to quit crashing my browser.

How cute, I laughed out loud when I saw the Paul Bunyan one, that would be absolutely hilarious if Backstrom picked that one. I kinda like the city skyline one though.

The skyline of the cities would be really cool. I could also see the logo one being selected.

I vote for the Nordy mask, although Id be happy to see the Paul Bunyan mask too. The others are too bland/typical for my taste.

keep in mind they're only the "ideas" he's choosing from, not the actual art.

that said i wish he'd say "the one with the blue pig and the guy in the flannel" and leave it exactly as-is.

Depending on what the artist does with that basic design, it has potential. There's a whole lot going on in it, though.
