    Thickest laces

    I don't like Elite waxed laces. They're so thin they tend to roll. Thicker laces stay flat.

    Odd skate sharpening question

    Skating on sandpaper sounds like your sharpening lacked a finishing pass.

    Baking gloves.

    Warm up a skate oven, turn the oven off and put your gloves inside for 1-2 minutes. I like to heat one glove at a time so I can work it in before the other glove cools down.
  4. At that price I'd rather have the Blademaster one. https://blademaster.com/web/en/gauging-accessories/249-br100.html $105CAD is about $80US.

    Jersey collection from deceased relative

    No companies will authenticate game worn jerseys, just signatures. Your best bet is to find any defects (marks, loose threads) on the jersey and photomatch it. Being a Gretzky, you should have tons of photos to choose from.

    Get a job at a LHS and attend a Bauer PK event.

    Jersey collection from deceased relative

    Post some photos and we can assess if they're actually gamers or retail replica/authentics. If it's indeed a game worn, the autograph will hurt its value slightly. Who issued the COAs? If they're from a reputable source (ex. the team) then it'll add value. The COA does nothing for the jersey if its issued by an unknown company.
  8. Your local shoe repair shop should be able to help you out as well.
  9. Coles notes: Hong Kong is up 11-2 vs Kunlun Red Stars. Kunlun players start assaulting Hong Kong players from behind with gloves on. China is calling this a "collision" while all other media outlets are calling it a brawl or assault. 3 Chinese players have been banned. What a bunch of losers. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/massive-hockey-brawl-erupts-between-hong-kong-and-shenzhen-at-national-youth-games-in-china-151557804.html

    Skates similar to x800s

    Dont worry about it too much if you barely fail the pencil test. Have your skates heated again. Wearing a slightly thicker sock for the baking process can help too.

    Supreme S29 vs Totalone NXG

    I've warrantied more Fusion than any other Tuuk steel. The APX2 came with the fusion and an extra set of LS3 so people wouldn't have to come back for a warranty return. That was one of the issues. So was pucks and sticks fracturing it.
  12. Most likely the end. If they sit out a full season there might not even be a league for them to play in when they decide to return.

    Supreme S29 vs Totalone NXG

    Except for the flexible tendon guard and the LS fusion steel.
  14. Talk to your local shop and let them know how much and what you're looking to buy. My shop would have entire teams come through when they were in town for tournaments. Can't really comment on specific prices but margins on current model hockey sticks isn't great.
