We have Players in the Wrong Uniforms, but what about Players in the Wrong Equipment? Some players are so synonymous with a certain type of equipment, that switching just seems wrong. Case-in-point, Arturs Irbe

There's bound to be a ton of these in hockey, in particular goalies.

Tim Thomas wore a ton of weird helmets, but for part of his rookie season he wore a pretty normal mask:
