    Alternative to True skates?

    OP already paid for the True skates. Why not continue to try and get the issue resolved, especially on a skate that is known to work for his son? It sounds like the LHS needs to step up and do their part to resolve the remake issue.

    The Sweet Spot

    Nice. Just for that I'm going to get a black frame for it in your honor.

    The Sweet Spot

    Wife and son ordered this license plate for me for Father's Day. Didn't even know they existed. They get me.
  4. Thank you for the kind words, happy to hear you are satisfied. The overdrive blades (or goalie blades in general) probably benefit from the enhanced edge retention more than player skates due to the higher likelihood of metal to metal contact. It's been great working with members of this site - thanks to JR for the opportunity. His initial response to a test set motivated me to move forward with this project.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    I'm curious to see the injury lists for both teams when they are released. I know O'Riley had a broken rib, and it's been floated that Bergeron had a groin issue. With Pasta I'm assuming there was some underlying injury- He didn't look right since coming back from the thumb injury. it's also possible that he became gunshy with all the physical play, especially in the finals.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    I'd like to see Backus in the line up for game 7. They could use his physicality, and moving someone like Heinen out I don't think would make a difference.

    Temporary Jersey Patch?

    Any recommendations for a patch vendor?

    Temporary Jersey Patch?

    That was my initial suggestion, board had concern they wouldn't end up getting sewn on because people are lazy.
  9. Flying into Denver and driving to Breckenridge area for vacation soon. Any shops around worth checking out near by or on the route?
  10. My son's youth hockey organization is turning 50 this upcoming season. The Board wants to make available a commemorative patch for the jerseys that can be applied easily and removed without damage to the jersey. I thought of Pant Skinz and maybe have something printed on that, and went to their website. Sure enough they already offer custom logo options. Has anyone used pant skinz on a jersey (or even pants) and then removed them? Curious how mush adhesive residue remained and how difficult it was to remove. I'm also open to any ideas for other options. I think helmet decals would be the easiest way to go, but want to explore a jersey based option first. Thanks

    Vintage skates pro stock

    Or $250- 350. OP will have no problem selling those for at least a couple hundred. New / like new Nike skates , gloves and helmets are still sought after by folks . Size 9 1/2, brand new with box- those will sell quick.
  12. If I recall correctly, Hespeler released black and NYR color scheme gloves patterned after Wayne's specs. I believe this was soon after he became involved in the company financially. The retail NYR ones had a white stripe across one of the lower two backrolls.
  13. The Vapor 10 , and maybe the 8 had the triangular cut outs on the steel, and it had a black finish. That was great quality steel and sharpened really well. The First generation LS2 holders had scalloped cuts on the bottom edge making it really difficult to hand stone. You may be thinking of the Tuuk V2 steel for the Custom + . It was "normal" width for the front 1/2 , and then was about half as thick from the middle to rear of the blade. Jay McKee used that stuff forever.
