    What would you like to see on MSH?

    More posts on social media like Instagram -- like and follow, with a giveaway for a ModSquad hat or other product? AMA on Reddit with JR? AMA here with equipment manufacturers? The Athletic had some great articles when speaking with trainers and operations managers. Very interesting stuff. ModSquad stickers for our helmets to bring more exposure? Sticky posts explaining skate sharpening, stick curves, curves? Youtube content? JR visits the local used equipment store to try old stuff...

    14th Annual MSH Winterfest

    The weekend was a blur of entertainment and ended too soon as all fun things tend to do. Thank-you JR, Erica, Joey, Gene, Chris, Dave -- apologies for forgetting anyone that made this happen and organized it months before/BBQ'd the food. Regret not taking a day off to join the Saginaw road trip. The booklet was a great idea, really helped identify who is who. Thank you Chris for the extra time you put into making that happen. It was awesome to see Warrior, Bauer and CCM show up and display their gear and answer everything. If they're reading this, I hope they continue to come. I do recommend these products to my teammates who more often than not, need new clean gear. Sorry, I may have drooled on the EK65 gloves a little bit. The game was a good skate. I forgot my MSH gloves, so thank-you to Tom for lending me a set. Tom forgot an elbow pad so he modded his jock to fit his elbow, hahaha. 5ivehole jerseys were brilliant, I will pass the contact info to those looking for new team jerseys. Great design, loved the shoulder patches. This was only my 2nd Winter Fest but I enjoyed meeting new people, sharing some drinks and food together for two nights. World's Best Mac and Cheese + 1am Primo's Pizza!!! Can't wait to see everyone again!

    The Athletic -- Worth it?

    Worth it. Great article today on Warrior and Adam Oates: https://theathletic.com/553200/2018/10/02/blade-whisperers-on-ice-tests-and-a-tijuana-trip-how-an-nhl-player-is-fitted-with-the-perfect-stick/

    10th Annual MSH SummerJam - Pittsburgh, PA

    Thank you to JR, Erica and the organizers for hosting and prepping such an enjoyable event. Appreciate all the hard work before and after the event. Photos, video, jerseys...wow. It was very interesting to see all the vendors. Custom Skateworks, Monty, Prosharp for participating and answering all my questions. CCM for providing the sticks and skates -- i'll pick up a Jetspeed one day. The gloves from Warrior are beautiful. Dave's a trooper for lighting that fire. I just heard Chris saying "I smell gas..." then bolted. Witnesses say Dave's arm was engulfed in flames? The burgers and wings were great made even better by the scenic view. Matt's famous Mac and Cheese wasn't present, but he shared the reciepe and how it's made (use imagination). :) Also could not complain about the late night pizza call, went well with the beers. Too bad we could't finish the cooler. Will definitely bring a case of Steamwhistle for Gooner next time.

    Warrior QRE Sticks

    Agreed on all points. The low kick is an improvement on the QRL.

    2018-19 Toronto Maple Leafs

    I think backup job is Sparks to lose after his ridiculous AHL season. Grundstrom could be a 4th liner but I don't think he will make it this year. Johnson was a beast during AHL playoffs. Trevor Moore was also a valuable asset, he could be a Babcock guy for the 4th line. I think they will give Holl a chance for the bottom 3 pairing with Marincin. They were really good together.

    Warrior Covert QREdge - kennywu

    Huge thank-you to Warrior and JR for the beautiful stick. Also kudos to Renfrew for the tape. Also appreciate the white QREdge hat from Warrior. Me: 5'9, 155 Stick: LH, 70 Flex, Backstrom Tape: Heel to toe Position: W/C Location: Toronto Level: B to C, 4-5 times a week Recent Sticks Used: Warrior QRL, QR1 Warrior AK27 Bauer 1N (2017) Bauer 1X (2016) True XC9 ACF First Impressions: I return home to find a huge box on my front door. This is after checking my mailbox everyday for a package slip. I take some pictures for social media for Warrior. I also do an unboxing video which turns out to be a really sad one as I received a righty instead of a lefty. Briefly contemplated learning to shoot right because the stick felt so great. After some panic, an email and a quick call to Warrior, a replacement was sent out. Two days later I return home to find a huge box on my front door. I rip it open and find a beautiful QR Edge with the right specs. After a quick tape job with Renfrew on the blade and Renfrew grip tape on the top, I play around with the green biscuit on my floor. I was hoping to test the QREdge, QRL and QR1 versus the 1N and XC9 with a radar gun but I just moved and haven't purchased a new net yet. This will come later. First Ice Sessions: The stick feels light and balanced. The Edge taper is beautiful -- it was actually love at first sight over half a year ago when I had my first sighting (I can talk about this now?). The colour scheme of blue/orange and black complement each other very well. But enough about aesthetics... Blade/Receiving Passes: I agree with the other reviewer comments. It's not stiff so I need an extra bit of care to receive hard passes. Again, in the hands of a more accomplished player I believe it will be a lesser point. But hey, this stick is about shooting -- and shooting quick. Passing: Quick release passes rocket off this with a little hop. Minimums Carbon 1200 makes it lighter and stronger than previous editions. Shooting: This stick loads quickly and gives a great release. You're able to feel the sling of the puck just fly off the blade and hit the target. I feel like Warrior improved an already wonderful stick in the QRL. Quick load, quick release. I placed around 250-300 shots during the open ice session. I admit I wasn't able to load it properly every time (user error) but in the hands of a true sniper this stick will give the edge. I felt snappers and wristers came off with ease. It's like a gradual evolution of the QR1 --> QRL to QREdge. Shaft/Durability: It feels strong, and I have no doubt it will last longer than the QRL and will be able to take abuse from opposing players. I'm interested in how long the toe will last. Overall: I have one QRL left so I'm going to buy more of the QREdges in the same flex/pattern. Great job to Warrior. Will add another review in the coming weeks after more games are played.

    College/Pro Team Equipment Sales

    Thanks for this find. Quite a few skates for $100-200 if you're in the size 9-9.5 category. Goalie gear is all half.

    Best shoulder pads for protection?

    The CCM CLs were nice but lacked some back protection. I have no major complaints with CCM RBZ, really light albeit a bit hot at times. I heard the newer version has better venting. Back protection is good. I tried the 1X pads but they were just too bulky.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Left boot has a squeaky sound when I lean forward on dryland. Loose blade in holder? Loose screw in holder? I barely bunny hop the boards, ugh.

    Boston vs Toronto

    Plekanec! Man our D was ruined. Wish they traded the 2nd and stuff for something instead of TP... hope to see Dommie and Mango (aka Johnson) back for game 2.

    Boston vs Toronto

    I take the Bruins over the Lightning. Sure they have arguably the best line in the league but the Leaves have three and possibly four if they let Johnny play. Goaltending is the wild card. Bruins played the most games in last stretch and Leafs least. *forgot about the "it was 4-1 game" already*
