    Kenesky in the NHL

    Pops made pads up into his ‘90s. Before Cooper, Koho, Jofa and Brown, Pops Kenesky was the only game in town for a long time from the early 20th century into the late ‘60s or early ‘70s. D&R probably got into market in the ‘70s. CCM only made goalie gloves back then. Brian Heaton and Mike Vaughn did not get into the game until the ‘80s. Ron Hextall was the last pro in the NHL wearing Kenesky, ending a long, long association with the league. The number of brands literally mushroomed from the ‘70s through the ‘90s!!!!! Your buddy had quite the experience hitchiking, then hanging on Pops’ door step! What a cool story!

    Kenesky in the NHL

    I am uncertain. I know John Brown famously refused to pay the fees and it ended up that only his chesty and other things covered up make it on NHL goalies. Of course his pads and gloves scream ‘80s. I think Kenesky were prepared to (AND were actually hoping to) pay the fee to be in the NHL last year. They were QUITE chuffed to have their leg pads appear on a pro in camp last year. Sorry to veer slightly off subject, but seeing the availability of new, old style pads, this proves that if there is a market for old stuffed pads, someone could still make a few bucks making cowlings for skates! Okay- back to Kenesky trying to make waves!

    Kenesky in the NHL

    @IPv6Freely Kenesky had a set of pads or two in NHL training camps last preseason. But it seems they may carve out their space in the NHL. Vaughn did whine a bit on social media because someone grafted a pair of Kenesky shoulder floaters onto a new VE8 chesty! That was awkward to watch...

    The Venting Spot

    I am calling the on-call nurse to see if she can help. She has been an angel. She is doing what she can, despite the direction of my hole from my ostomy as it is down and almost aiming straight back at me! She has been out yesterday and today. I don’t get to see the visiting ostomy/wound nurse until Tuesday as it is a specialty; I just get the on-call visiting nurse who has some experience with these things. All I can do is hope my bag stays attached until Tuesday when the wound/ostomy nurse comes by. I realise there are people going through MUCH worse, which this realisation is what helps me hang on. To say I am going through hell right now is an understatement!

    How are you doing underneath that? Hope you’re okay.

    One week and three days post-op from step two in my three operation method to poo from my bum again and I can’t get my pouching system to last long or not have leaks. My stoma and surrounding skin has dramatically changed shape. Tuesday is when I see the ostomy nurse and this is driving me up a wall!

    Time to officially hang em up?

    @shooter27 Lots of great advice given here. My tuppence: it is hard as hell to take bad hockey along with not knowing people. I was lucky that I literally stopped playing so long ago that I looked like a downright beginner when I had returned, so I did not have that problem of playing bad hockey. I, too, am an introvert DESPITE having spent 27 years in a sales job! I really like to turn it off when not in sales mode and I want total separation from sales mode and outside of sales mode. So it is harder to get to know people. Your ability, skills and experience could open the door for playing in a group where decent hockey and MUCH better friendships could blossom. You have something to offer less skilled players and the satisfaction of people trying and learning to play up to you can be quite great. If you need to take a break, take a break. Don’t sell off your gear until you know that you’re completely done or your gear would look cool hanging on the walls or ceiling of a hockey or sports-themed bar/restaurant.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    As I say- if I were Jeremiah Sparkington or Josediah True, I’d throw them a bone IF the brands grew directly from this website; but this is merely what I would do (and do regularly to thank people for referrals or free advertising).

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    I can understand where you’re coming from, Mr. Oldtrainerguy. The difference is that it is the rank and file of this site discussing the sharpener with little participation of the owner and/or employees. He’s present, but there is not any active “stealth” advertising or promotions from the company owner. Now if I were “Jerimiah Sparkington” (I know- not the real owner’s name), I would throw a bone at this site owner if this thread was making business hop (and no- he doesn’t have to in my opinion). This is simply a discussion on the sharpener- good, bad and otherwise.
