Biron finally gets a paint job
After Monday's rare practice at the Wachovia Center, necessitated by the latest team picture day in club history, Biron unzipped a pouch and revealed his new Flyers mask, glistening in orange and black with images of the Rocky statue, the Philadelphia skyline and the Liberty Bell.The story of Biron's mask has been ongoing now for quite a while, as the veteran netminder kept his plain white getup through the end of his tenure with the Buffalo Sabres — a public protest for a trade to a team that would give him a shot to be a No. 1 netminder.
Now Biron has his shot, and from all accounts he's going to sign a long-term deal in Philadelphia in the near future.
I'll have photos of Biron's new mask when they become available.
