Ugh. You can thank Charlie Sheen for killing what little cool was left in tigers. Apparently, word hasn't reached Bryzgalov yet.

According to In Goal Magazine, this is what Bryz's new mask will look like. Let's break it down:

1) That tiger needs about three shots of testosterone. Good lord, he looks like Nathan Lane in The Birdcage. Grrr.

2) The smoke transition from black-to-tiger is nice. But again, tiger.

3) It's a fucking tiger. 

Something tells me this was based on the Rocky request (Eye of the Tiger) he had from one fan back in July. Dammit.

Butt slap to Dave Isaac and Dustin Leed for the find

UPDATE: The designer at Drummond Custom Airbrush (the local company that has done other Flyers masks) says he will be customizing a mask for Bryz:

He told us it will include some Philly-themed history and will be "worth the wait."

Now, without knowing the inner-workings of the NHL goalie mask underground, I wouldn't be shocked if a number of places pitched their mask ideas to 'tenders. We shall see.
