    The Sweet Spot

    Bit the bullet and bought what I need to go from all inline to some ice. Jetspeed 300s, QLT 290 pants and ultra tacks shoulders. (Got a bad shoulder so good protection is imperative)

    Warrior HD1

    I picked one up too since they're on heavy discount. I've only played it 3 or 4 times. No real issues yet, but some pretty significant chipping on the toe and heel. Keep in mind I'm not a great player and tend to get into a lot of blade on blade contact while on defense. I will say I had the same issue with my HD Pro at about the same time. That stick is still playable and hasn't suffered much beyond cosmetic damage. That said, the QRL3 I picked up has been holding up all better all around than either of the Dynastys.

    Severs Disease - Fixes?

    You don't know what is causing it without getting checked out. You're not qualified. It could be something worse, it could be a lot simpler. Go see a doctor. No offense intended.

    This thread just took a hard right into 90s D.A.R.E. territory. Haha.

    People with dislocated knees

    Go to a specialist and do the rehab. Even once it feels better.

    Gloves that stay on

    Glad it worked out for you! I still love mine. As they break in the cuff becomes a lot more mobile. They still stay firmly in place but are easier to put on and take off as well.

    CCM Sticks - A low point?

    Have you tried the W88? The new Covert QRL has held up pretty well to all the horrible abuse I've put it through

    Yeah... glad I didn't watch that one. I don't know what he was thinking. Lol.

    Colorado Avalanche 2016-17

    What a dumpster fire. Started with the team playing well and Varly crapping the bed every other game. Now it just seems like no one cares except Duchene (who can't score at home), MacKinnon, and Pickard. Their early saving grace was their power play. It was crisp and fast. But it's been anemic for way too long. Along with the rest of our offensive weapons. So what's the answer? Blow up the core? Trade Landeskog for a decent defenseman? Put together a package for a superstar? Ready? Go!

    It's official. If anyone in the Denver metro area has any leads on customer service management jobs, please let me know. I think I've got 3 months.

    Looking like the company I work for is being bought by one of our competitors. We're not small by any means, but the company rumored to be the purchaser is multinational. There's supposedly going to be an announcement made soon. Here's to hoping the rumors aren't true. Or that at least I'll still have a job after all is said and done.

    Gloves that stay on

    Yeah. I thought the same thing as stick9 but then looked them up (I'm not a Bauer guy).

    Gloves that stay on

    You're sure they're not too big? The flex cuff portion on the new Warrior Covert QRLs keep them in place pretty well. Maybe time to try some different gloves?

    The Sweet Spot

    Haha. He claimed he liked them but it looked hilarious. I'm betting he's one slash away from going back to real gloves.
  15. kmfdm86

    The Sweet Spot

    Nah, they're a either a contoured or tapered fit. I tried them on and my knuckles sat halfway down the palm. Haha. He thought they were 14".

    So. I went to drop in tonight and my teammate Adam shows up and is all "Yeah man, I got some new gloves, they're fucking sweet man. Check it out" and he busts out these 12" JR size gloves. Lol. His new nickname is babyhands. Haha.

    ccm resistance and concept 3 bubble?

    Sure thing. Just be careful and don't damage the helmet.

    ccm resistance and concept 3 bubble?

    Haven't seen it on the resistance, but I've got a teammate who put the concept 3 on a ccm fitlite. He said the key was getting longer screws. I haven't looked at it closely though, so ymmv.

    Hi-Lo patent expired

    I see a good amount of CCM where I play. I'm curious now though. Gonna have to start keeping a tally at the rink.

    I dunno. You think Mission/Bauer outsells all of the 80 setup manufacturers combined?
  21. Probably not going to break the stick unless there's a defect or its damaged. They're meant to be flexed. The key to a good shot is proper form. Make sure you have that down first. I'd recommend find an area where you can do dryland practice in your shoes to get the form right.

    No, the refs hand out extra penalties if you try to ask them why a call was or wasn't made. They've even ejected our captain for it, telling him he can only talk to them after the game. Also, it wasn't even his follow through. He swung the stick with enough force that it bounced straight off my stick and went flying into my face.
  23. kmfdm86

    The Venting Spot

    Yeah. It's definitely a matter of discipline. We have a guy that doesn't wear a cage or visor that would've gotten really messed up if it was him instead of me.
  24. kmfdm86

    The Venting Spot

    It's just weird because they're usually very liberal with their penalties. They'll call you for slashing if your stick is within 6 inches of their hands. I hope they're just loosening up in general, but I really think that should have been a call.

    Today I'm grateful that I play hockey with face protection. Second inline game of the season (won our first game 2-0). We're facing a new team to the league, it's their first season there. We're destroying them 8-1 with about 7 minutes to go in the third. Puck lands at the half boards and I'm heading towards it at about a 45 degree angle. Guy on the other team is heading for it at about the same angle but going the other way. I just barely get there first and this dude takes a giant golf swing at the puck and cracks me straight up the centerline of my cage with the shaft of his stick. He doesn't apologize and just moves on. Ref is standing five feet away. The whole team saw him watch it happen and the ref just shrugs at me. It's not like he brushed me with it or anything. It was loud. Normally I don't get worked up over missed calls but if I wasn't wearing anything I'd have a broken nose and missing teeth. On my last face off I was against him and just kind of wrapped his stick up and shoved him out. Felt good. Haha. Final score was 8-2, but still.
