  2. 26 grams, approximately the weight of a AA battery; it takes anywhere from 5-10 years to develop excellent puck handling skills, obviously depending on the amount of time you devote to it. Don't really think that 26 grams makes any difference; practice does, as it develops motor skills in the wrist, forearm and shoulder

    These are the differences in a nutshell; expect more hack and slash in Box http://www.blalax.com/boxfield http://www.lacrosse-information.com/box-lacrosse.html
  4. Seymours Skate Lab in Kirkland
  5. Bob Hartley. The Habs do not have the horses/talent/skill to play an offensive style; they have 2 1/2 lines of fourth liners, depressing as that is, they cannot even move the puck out of their own end without looking like the keystone cops. The team will do as well as Price does.
  6. Ah, the irony of the Bruins coming to the aid of the floundering Habs, giving them permission to approach Julien and being hired by them. Althoma1 I would hardly call the Canadiens hockey under Therrien exciting hockey. Dump and chase. What players developed under Therrien? None. The same cannot be said for the Bruins under Julien, even this year. They got rid of Subban, (as the problem), but they are no further ahead. Does anyone remember the last time Weber body checked anyone? Did the gang of 3 (Paciorety, Weber, and Price) have a hand in the firing of Therrien? Will Julien make a difference given the talent pool the Habs have?
  7. History repeats itself 13 years later http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/claude-julien-returns-montreal-michel-therrien-fired-1.3982888

  9. The amount of force required to bend the shaft 1 inch, measured in lbs. For a 75 flex stick it would take 75 lbs. of force to bend the shaft 1 inch...and so on
  10. There has been very little written on the Stallion 600 stick; Is it worth upgrading from my go to Stallion 500 (becoming rarer to find)?
  11. Mods please kill this thread and all related threads; enough of this inane search for the holy grail of 20 dollar sticks. Numerous posters have chimed in with thoughtful insights but yet we keep going around in circles. OP "found" his NXG in another thread and wants to purchase a piece of lumber as an adjunct. He has enough choices that have been suggested by fellow members to purchase a top end stick at great price. How much more needs to be written.
  12. icewalker is right; other sticks may or may not have passed it by in technology, but fwiw it is still worlds away from the pieces of lumber that you are comparing it to. At 9 bucks it is a real no brainer

  14. I think he meant Stamkos did not get a new curve after renaming the PM9 Larkin
  15. As specs78 wrote, you cannot go wrong with the Easton pro15; also the Tackla 9000, Eagle x95, x88 give excellent tailbone protection. Not familiar with the newer lines of Eagle pants but they are on clearance as is the Easton.
  16. What, they gave you amnesia instead?
  17. My son uses the long sleeve grip version. It took him one or two ice times to get use to it (using the long string attachment to the zipper). Collar is velcro adjustable like a regular neck guard. It's convenient, one less hassle not having to worry about a neck guard.
  18. It is on WADA's banned list of substances because it increases tolerance to cold and has some psycho stimulatory properties. You should actually read the science behind a lot of these "supplements". There was one rat study done which showed cognitive enhancement in healthy young rats. There have been a few legitimate studies done with respect to the elderly, the cognitively impaired, and stroke victims which have also shown some sort of cognitive improvement (12% vs placebo). Bottom line there is no science behind any of the "performance" enhancing claims made by the supplement companies that sell it.
