Quick's mask, as teased by Eye Candy Air and artist Steve Nash, is a little more reserved. (Now I have "You spin me right round, baby, right round" stuck in my head.)
Overtly patriotic or not, it still is very clearly the mask of a goaltender for Team USA with this year's Olympic seal on the chin and USA written above the eyes. There are also a couple of infusions of gold thrown in for good measure.
But what's interesting is how it's a blend of Quick's everyday mask with the Kings and a new look for the Olympics. The familiar armored look -- a look he has had for years now -- from his mask in LA makes its way onto his Olympic cage, it just adds the American elements and color to alter the design.
We know this: Between Miller and Quick (we're yet to see Jimmy Howard) and American women's goalie Jessie Vetter's awesome mask, the Americans are going to have some sharp-looking goalies in Sochi.
