    Stick curves

    W88 here. (Warrior's version) I like it because it's a jack of all trades. It does everything with relative ease. I'm not a great shot, but I can rip some wicked top shelf backhanders with that blade.

    Christmas Loot

    What's that? Haha. Sorry, going right over my head. Lol.

    Columbus Blue Jackets 2016-17

    As an Avs fan this season is basically dead to me. Lol. But it is really cool to see what the Jackets are doing. I definitely did not expect this, even after they acquired Seth Jones. But I've never paid much attention to them before. It's crazy.

    Damn man. That's an awful streak. Hang in there.

    The Venting Spot

    On Monday at work I was missing 80% of my staff. So I had one front line guy working cases and calling clinics about issues with patients lab work (I work in a preanalytical department for a medical laboratory doing problem resolution). So I figure as the boss it's my duty to jump in and help him so he's not overwhelmed. I also had to do all my supervisory duties. I come in today to check the numbers from the day before come to find out I worked twice as many cases as my employee did and resolved ten times as many cases. I'd accept a slight discrepancy but we're talking 47 vs 105 here. I've had problems with his productivity before. I just can't find a way to light a fire under this guy. I just want to hook him up to something that will zap him when he starts getting sidetracked or slows down. He does great work, but he moves like molasses.

    Colorado Avalanche 2016-17

    I think it's too early to blame him. They spent three years playing with no structure. Old habits die hard. I know it's different due to the NHL coaching experience, but look at the blue jackets their first season under Torts vs where they are now.

    Colorado Avalanche 2016-17

    Varlamov was straight up bad early in the season. He looked like he was going to be headed for one of his inevitable early season groin injuries. He has some good games under his belt now, but he's been super inconsistent. And has now been out for 3 games with one of the aforementioned groin injuries. The rest of the team seems to have quit offensively. They cap out at about 2 goals per game.

    Colorado Avalanche 2016-17

    Yeah, I'm still not entirely sure how Roy fits in the whole picture. We were definitely sliding further down each season with him. I feel like we would more or less be in the same spot with him. If he had the input on players he wanted and didn't want, who knows? Maybe it would be different. I agree there's no simple solution, but someone has to do something. The games elicit zero emotion from me right now. I still love the team, and I'll still watch. But it's rough right now.

    Foot pain when skating

    A lot of the back and forth is probably an ankle strength thing. It'll get better the more you do it and they get stronger. Some of it is knowing how to properly align your center of gravity while moving on a damn near frictionless surface. Haha.

    Hockey Careers?

    Have you tried watching the manufacturers' careers sections on their sites? other than knowing someone in the business I'd say thats the best place to start.

    Vapor 1x wooden plug

    I've never used a plug before, but maybe try sanding it down a little bit at a time where it gets stuck?

    The Sweet Spot

    So my inline team played tonight. Lots of new guys and we're finally starting to all mesh. We won our game in epic fashion, 7-2. In the last four minutes I blocked a slap shot with my thigh right above where the padding on my compression shorts end. Gonna have a nice welt there. I've got three raised circles from the pegs on the puck where it hit me. Lol. Doesn't hurt too bad but I'm waiting for it to bruise to see how much puck detail I get. Haha.
  14. Pick the side you're better at stick handling with and only shoot off your backhand :p Lol.

    What equipment do you use?

    Time to update the list I guess. I've spent way too much money on hockey gear this year. Helmet: CCM FitLite 3DS Cage: CCM Resistance 300 Elbow: CCM QuickLite 290 Shins: CCM RBZ 130 Gloves: Warrior Covert QR1 Padded Shorts: Mission Pro Compression Shirt: Mission Pro Compression Pants: CCM RBZ Stick: Warrior Covert QRL3, W88, 75 flex Skates: CCM Jetspeed Bearings: Swiss Bones
  16. If the price is right, I would definitely do it. I'm a terribad ice skater so I mostly stick to inline, but I'd even do inline practice. I'm not greathe, I played on and off again as a kid. But any sort of practice time is always good in my eyes.

    Like the logo and color scheme. Not a big fan of the name though.

    hockey Wraparound Ice

    Yeah, I never used mine for games and I believe they recommend against it as its a good way to wreck it. I just used mine to practice stick handling, passing and wrist shots.

    hockey Wraparound Ice

    Noticed it the other day on Facebook. I'm intrigued. I liked the Wraparound One, but I completely ate through it practicing outside once a week for a month. Would be awesome if it help up better than the old one.

    CCM FitLite 3DS

    So I got a bonus at work and went out yesterday looking to pick up a new lid. I'm currently in a FitLite FL80 but it doesn't quite fit right around my temples, slightly too tight but fits well everywhere else. I thought maybe it was the wrong shape for my head and went out expecting to pick up a Resistance or something rounder. Well, none of those fit me anywhere near right so I tried on the 3DS out of curiousity and holy crap, this thing is the most comfortable helmet I've ever had on my head. The microdial locks it in place comfortably with zero movement. Anyone that's picked one up have any thoughts? Does it hold up well? It's expensive but for that level of comfort and fit I'm willing to go there.

    CCM FitLite 3DS

    Yeah, I wouldn't normally either. Got a $700 bonus and I have a gear problem. Haha. At least I didn't buy another stick. But in all seriousness, the lower end fitlites pinch my temples, and the helmets for rounder heads (ccm resistance and others) flop side to side even when they're tight enough to not move forwards or backwards. I'm wondering if the sweat absorption is any better or worse than the FL80, because that one was pretty bad.

    The Venting Spot

    Been fighting with my anxiety to get up the will power to go back to school for the past two years. In September on my 30th birthday I decided enough was enough. I went and applied, got accepted, went to put through my credits from previous school work and they only accept 6 credit hours. Kind of disappointing when you have an accumulated 66 credit hours towards an art degree you never finished. As well as successful completion of an EMS Program at an accredited college (In going back to be a medical laboratory technologist). But it is what it is I meet with the advisor and she tells me my experience is satisfactory and the only general ed credits I need to complete to move forward are BIO201 and CHE101. I need to complete these in the spring to be accepted into the MLT program next fall. I go to register for classes today and it tells me I'm missing 4 prerequisites for those two goddamn classes and won't let me register for them. Which puts all of my plans back a year. It may not seem like a huge ordeal but for someone with an anxiety disorder who has been struggling to make this move for years it feels like my entire world got turned upside down.

    Show It Off

    Sweet. I'm poor and boring so I've only got a QRL3 in a W88. Freaking awesome stick though. Digging the white graphics.

    CCM Jetspeed Eyelet issue

    This thread made me paranoid so I pulled out my inline jetspeeds. Obviously less moisture involved in the endeavor, so no rust. There are a lot of deformities though as well as 1/3 of one eyelet on the bottom outside of the boot bent all the way back that I never even noticed before. Can anyone provide specific reccomendations for replacements and suggestions for where to get it done? Thanks! Don't wanna tear a hole in that boot. Haha.
  25. I think he's worried about them getting them and going "You abused the product, warranty claim denied'. Which seems like I've heard a lot of coming from Bauer on legit warranty returns. He's also still without shin guards in the meantime.
