  1. lol I've been buzzing my leg hairs for decades just for this reason.
  2. @BenBreeg I don't know if I'd call it a derailment hehe. It's diving deeper into what methods can work better for athletes. I may have seen the doc, but I'll double check. Sometimes it takes an injury to find a better way to do things, which I think was a pretty large motivator for DeFranco. My friend had Hischier and Siegenthaler for a little bit when they came back to the U.S. pre-season last year. They did a podcast with Nico during that time. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mike-and-brooker-show/id1510678873?i=1000533850720 It's interesting. The listens are sadly much higher on the athletes, than on the top-end trainers and innovators that train the athletes themselves. DeFranco was episode 57. If you want a laugh, check out Chris Hogan #40
  3. I don't think Ovechkin has ever really needed an enforcer, the guy's a bull. He still has 4 years to put up 114 goals. So he'll have to essentially put up 29 goals a season. He may get close, it'd be awesome to see. It depends on whether Washington can continue to retool around him as well. The roster's been aging.
  4. Correct, the name of the game is usually long-term health and pre-hab to avoid injury. Funny you mentioned Joe DeFranco, I used to go to his gym to train with my friend who maintained a large portion of the clients when Joe relocated. And yes, never bench pressed anything, a lot of functional strength work, weighted body work. Seen lots of NFL, NBA, MLB with successful and long careers come through that gym. The occasional NHLer. Always have to be learning and evolving.
  5. My Bauer customs I got to go custom width on the boot, custom stretch on the toecap, and a couple other small tweaks. I could have done different stiffness, etc. But this was also maybe 10 years ago at this point.
  6. I love, love, love seeing all your hard work over the years applied to games! Nice hustle, solid puck protection. I'll agree with the others, you definitely want to try to remain on the defensive side of the puck. Get lower into the defensive zone to present yourself as an option between the hash marks and the blue line. If you get the puck, take the first few strides to get the opponents into a defensive mode and either your center or opposite wing "should" be breaking out of the zone with speed.
  7. Until it breaks. I'm usually around 2 years on my prostocks. I play D and I'm not a heavy shooter.
  8. It flipped? Good to know, I was considering making the switch.
  9. My friend's sticks arrived. Two RH 91A's in 77 flex. He was told they're the old Synergy but with a mid-kick. Flex feels high-mid, not low. Based on where the blade meets the shaft he's guessing it's a Bauer mold, not Easton. He's guessing a prior Supreme like 2S Pro. Grip shaft with sandpaper blade. If it's worth anything the sticker on the blade says: 1061418 Easton Synergy Grip Stk-SR-77(60")
  10. My friend ordered two of them, when they come in I'll see if he knows what they are under the paint job. He's guessing some sort of Bauer Supreme.
  11. If you've advanced that much, I'd say challenge yourself and step up a division for the next season. You'll never get better playing weaker competition.
  12. Wow, I thought my Graf G75 Ultra Lites were feathers at 417 grams or whatever they were. Unfortunately, I had multiple break during gameplay so they got retired though having a bunch due to being inexpensive.
  13. This is interesting. I play at 3 (Ice House) and it'd definitely depend on the roster. I also believe it's one of the larger mens leagues in the country. Pre-covid they were up to 8 or 9 divisions that were packed with 8+ teams per division usually.
  14. I was so excited to see this thread pop up! Damn, probably better on one leg than I am at this point! Once you're comfortable with it, see if you can keep the planted leg's knee bent a little more, so you can pump and control more with that leg than your lifted leg. Awesome that you're working on these finer skills. Outside edge stops look incredibly smooth and fluid. Your step over following it is nice and smooth. Hope you're doing well and please keep posting updates! Six years into this venture how do you feel about it? Are you still loving it?
  15. My original A6.0 got sticky as well. Sit's in my basement at the same 60-70 degrees year-round.
