Flyers Unveil Ilya Bryzgalov’s New ‘Star Wars’ Mask

Goaltender finds your lack of faith disturbing

The Philadelphia Flyers tweeted out photos of Ilya Bryzgalov’s forceful new mask, a tribute to the Star Wars universe. The custom job, created by Langhorne, Pa.-based artist Fran Drummond, features Darth Vader, Yoda, R2-D2, an Imperial storm trooper, the Millennium Falcon and a TIE fighter.

But why, pray tell, is Yoda is wielding a red lightsaber, the color blade customarily used by the Sith (i.e. the bad guys) throughout Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and those other three?

We’ve got a very bad feeling about this.

Yoda with a red lightsaber? really?

you would think that a guy who drops several hundred to several thousand to get a mask painted would pay attention to details like that...
