  1. The Sweet Spot

    I've won 25 games this year after being off the past 3 when I was focusing on baseball. I have a combined record right now of 25-2-0 since August,won 20 straight from August 14 to March 5 , and we're 11-1 in our Spring League, which is tops in the league.
  2. The Venting Spot

    Win streak ended at 20, in an UGLY 6-0 loss.
  3. Talking with Goalie between periods

    Honestly, I'm pretty vocal- I look at what the other goalie is doing right or wrong and push to give them tips to help offensively. Conversely, they tell me something I can improve on defensively. I enjoy the instant feedback, and my teammates are helping me get better in the process. Tonight, we won 8-1 with no skaters on our bench. We had 6(counting me). Most nights it's usually pretty competitive, with 1-2 goal differences.
  4. The Venting Spot

    I am currently playing goal on a B team with half of my team from Fall League because apart from our 6 forfeit losses, we went 13-1(and hadn't lost a game since our first one). The league forcibly split our team into A-only, B-only and Can play Both. Our A team is 3-0 and our B-team is 3-0 as of this writing. I get the idea of splitting teams up in the interest of fairness, but I'm gonna be mad if I have to go to the team that went 4-12-4 if I have another successful season. I think it should be a combination of team vote/rink finalization rather than some guy in an office out front of the rink downing 6 Monsters a day deciding to do it on a whim. Edit: I personally am 4-0 in games this season(3W in B, 1W in A).

  6. Equipment modifications

    I LOVE my G-Form(Thanks JR!) shirt/shorts combo and wear it every game I'm in net. 5 years and still going strong. That said, the only mod I've used significantly is the addition of a pro fight strap on the back of my C/A... not using it for altercations, but to help keep my chest protector in place.
  7. The Sweet Spot

    After losing the first game of fall season 14-12, I'm now 16-1-0 in my first 17 starts as a goalie with my new team. We won fall league with 13 wins, and I'm 3-0 in Winter B league with a month long break before the next game!
  8. The Venting Spot

    Yep, I teach in an Emotional Support room. Anything is possible in there...
  9. The Venting Spot

    On a 9 game win streak, (team is 11-6, in first place by 3 games, and 5 of the 6 losses were by forfeit this year) and I get kicked in the head by a student on Monday in my classroom. Out for season with concussion.
  10. The Sweet Spot

    Been away from hockey since Late 2013 because I was busy with college club baseball. Started fall season in Early August and lost the first game 14-12, giving up 13 of those. I've won the next 6 with a +/- of 14(highest +/- in the league). The group of guys I'm playing with are all "9-5ers", mostly doctors and I'm the "blue-collar" guy in the group teaching Special Education. I'm probably gonna skate out next season to entice my good friend to get back into it as well, but it's been so good getting back into the game I was put on this earth to play.
  11. Stick length for Defenceman

    Whatever feels right for you, do it. I play a shutdown forward role when I skate out, but am only about 5'9". My sticks go up to my nose on skates.
  12. Pro Level Goalie Gear Sale - Entire Setup

    Full Right(RH Trapper) or Regular(LH Trapper)?
  13. Switching from Butterfly to Hybrid Pads (Help!)

    1. I lace my Brian's M-series Toe Tie through all 3 cowl parts, boot strap in the back tied loosely, then the leg straps about 3-4 holes left(medium-tight). My knee straps are about the same, but a touch tighter. I don't use my above-knee strap. 2.I shied away from the Larceny Series because of the double boot. I would experiment with that... you could go 1 and 2, 1 and 3, or 2 and 3. It depends on where you want the boot of the pad to end up, IIRC. 3.Do you still have your 7k's? You may be able to swap your toe-ties if you plan on exclusively using your L9's. 4. I use the built in thigh-guards with my M-series. I also have the Bauer Pro pants with telescoping knee.
  14. Do NHL teams or players get flu shots?

    I feel flu shots are an unnecessary risk. My family has a history of getting extremely ill from the vaccine, not exposure to the virus itself. Thus, I choose to take the risk and not get the flu shot. On a side tangent, it's probably like wearing a visor/not wearing a visor to most of these guys.
  15. Face mask use with different brands?

    Typically they're all 6 of one, half a dozen of the other, but due to different fits of helmets, you may need to adjust your cage size accordingly. I, having a medium-average face and a larger noggin, wear a Medium Bauer RBE VIII cage with a Large 5100.
