Ryan Miller can kiss the plain white mask good bye because he has himself a new custom Blues mask and it's anything but plain.

Let's just say it screams Blues, not just the team and color but the musical genre too. On opposite sides are dueling guitars, connected by a string of musical notes across the chin and an old-school Blues script on the chin. Miller explained they are more than regular old guitars.

On the top is the Blues' note logo along with an the famour Arch stretching from side to side.

The mask was made by Ray Bishop of Bishop Designs. He has been painting Miller's masks for years now. Bishop shared a whole gallery of photos on Facebook.

On the back plate you'll find Miller's motto "Miller Time" with a bulldog in green. It clashes a bit but that's the spot for personal touches more than anything else on the mask and green of course harkens back to his days at Michigan State.

It's already proving to be not the most popular mask -- certainly not as popular as Miller's Olympic mask -- but it's a throwback of sorts. Miller is paying homage to one of the Blues' greatest goalies.

No matter how you feel about this mask, it's certainly better than all white.
