Goalie's Mask: red, white & Dryden

Well tonight sucked for me, I have no feel for my Sabres team right now after a loss to the Islanders 2-1. The looked good at times but just couldn't hit the net all night, especially when it counted. They do have a lot of Injuries so I hope they will come together when the bulk of the team is back. I'm getting back into things here now, I've started painting some and idea shopping more goalie masks, I should have some up soon as well as more great work from Jim Link.

Anyway this piece was brought to my attention from Robert who is a friend of the artist whos other work can be seen here The artist

Jim Link: Miikka Kiprusoff

Jim sent in a treasure trove of art work not to long ago and each one is fantastic. My sabres are taking of the Flames tonight so I decided to post his drawing of Miikka Kiprusoff. There as been some controversy for Sabres fans recently, questioning Ryan Millers play, frankly the team as a whole has not been playing as a team, and yes Miller usually stops some of the goals that he's allowed but I have no doubt he will be able to work on his game and get back to his usual puck stopping self. If I was the coach I'd give him tonight off, play Enroth to allow Miller some more practice time and to get things right on the road where he doesn't have the pressure of the home fans. We'll see how it goes....herrreeeee's Kipper!
