    Adding Blade Texture

    Tape protects a blade. Use the tape. With wax.

    Bauer p92M blade

    Remember Prince started making "oversized" tennis rackets? Those of you around my advanced age might. This is like that I think... and eventually all rackets became bigger and it wasn't really oversized anymore. I think for me that will end up being a good thing because if last night's game is any indication I need a bigger stick blade!!!

    The Venting Spot

    He was on Cerni post surgery. He is still eating and seems ok for the most part until today. Today he he didn't want to walk and I was really worried but he seems ok around the house now. Probably just a matter of time.

    Quad Zero profile

    You can move the counterpoint but I don't think that would help. I won't put myself in the expert category by any means but I've spoken to those that are and what I hear repeated over and over is that you have to try a few different profiles and dial in what really works for you. Stay tuned on MSH for the opportunity!!

    Not bulky elbow pad

    At your level with checking I'd want some significant protection. Good value for me - and pretty mobile - is the CCM 7092. Lighter and a bit less bulky than the Tacks but I'd argue a tad less protective of course. The FT1 line is not my cup of tea but slimmer lines and worth consideration. I know some people that liked the last few years of thew model design a lot and I expect that to continue into the new model cycle. That being said, this is all personal preference and you need to try stuff on and see what you like.

    Thanks. Trying to enjoy each day. He is doing so well and is happy and energetic but there is a crazy ticking time bomb inside him. Hard to imagine.

    The Athletic -- Worth it?

    For sure. Love it!

    Quick question: low profile shoulder pads

    I have these and I have modded them by sewing in Farrell padding. More than enough protection. Low profile and really mobile./. Took some work tho.

    Love what Bauer is doing here. Almost can't wait for my current Bauer customs to go but I have more than a few years left in them!

    10th Annual MSH SummerJam - Pittsburgh, PA

    It's been a bit of a whirlwind since I got back with my dog being sick so I haven't had a chance to say a proper thank you to @JR Boucicaut and Ericca and the rest of the MSH fam. As many of you do I plan and look forward to these events all year long. They are my break from the real world and a chance to just get a way and hang and talk hockey or anything else. They are always a great time and this was no exception. JR works tirelessly all year long and I don't think many know the personal sacrifices he makes to bring this all to fruition. So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you JR. I'd also like to clear some things up. I do NOTHING. I appreciate that some of you guys give me a thank you but I'm just a dude whop likes helping out a bit. It makes me feel good. So I don't deserve shit for thanks.... this is JR's show and he puts in all the work. So... some of my memories from this trip that stand out... Thanks @JoeyJ0506 and Meredith for showing is all the ropes in Pittsburgh and finding some OUTSTANDING burgers. Like, top 3 EVER!! Wow. @Goonsquad for all that cooking and not poisoning us. You might not have known who Nosike, or if he was there, but you got the job done! @IPv6Freely for letting me drive us around in his truck and being a darn good navigator. He also gives a shit ton of his time keeping the technical engine that is MSH running and if anyone deserves thanks for helping out it is him. If anything, I might have enjoyed getting to know Chris this past weekend more than anything else. Special thanks to the Pittsburgh PD for keeping us safe. Truly enjoyed getting too know @customskateworks and seeing his stuff. Great guy, great stories and great products!!! Thanks for supporting MSH! Thank you @Shayne Toporowski and ProSharp. I'm a quad 0 man but I can't wait to try more. The discount on the home machine is much appreciated and it looks great. I got to set up the CCM sticks and skates so I am billing them for my services. As a newly minted CCM rep I promise you all a discount!!! I loved the feel of the JetSpeed. That stick felt like a winner to me. Great chatting with @Monty22 at dinner! I will turn you into a left winger (not hockey position!!) before we are done!! Great coating too!!!! Cool seeing you on the "other side" off the table!! As always a special place in my heart for my boys... @Haggerty @JR Boucicaut @mojo122 @Wolfpack_1986 @stick9 See the rest of you hateful bastards at WF!! So amazing watching Emma Haggerty grow up. What a beautiful little girl! Thanks to Liz for letting her sit own my lap and for being such an amazing mom!! Anyone that can raise a kid as great as that with @Haggerty in the house is truly special!! Wait.... @PhillyCat actually scored???? I gotta get in shape for WF!!! That being said @nealbroten was the real family star and played some exceptional defense out there. Best train set I have ever seen at the Carnegie Science Museum. Looking forward to seeing @mojo122 exact his revenge on @stick9 FIRE!!! FIRE!!!! Yes Tom, I now have a healthy respect for it!!! (in my defense I was drunk and had no clue how long the gas was flowing for. There's nothing like a fireball to sober your ass up real quick!!! See ya all soon!!! Already have my calendar circled!! Ciao!

    The Venting Spot

    Found out my dog's cancer is now active. No more treatments. They give him anywhere from 2weeks to 2 months. I am beyond sad. He has been an amazing dog and a member of the family. IK love him and will miss him terribly. Frankly, I'm a mess.

    Quad Zero profile

    Loved my quad 0 but I'm nit feeling the same amount of blade on the ice lately. I've gained weight and think maybe I am skating differently.
