  1. Suggestions? We may be moving there, so trying to find where any rinks are to try to decide what area to live in.
  2. I did 10 but can’t say if that was necessary.
  3. Just more aliexpress junk like all the others.
  4. Thanks for the detailed analysis.
  5. you made it sound like it was here. anyway, moving on.
  6. That’s cool, but I won’t be representing my country internationally any time soon
  7. As far as I understood it, the helmet ads aren’t just bonus money but are actually paying towards the NHLs missing tv deal revenues or something like that.
  8. I like the crew of Gord and Ray, personally. I don't like Gord for NHL games, but for international stuff he's the best in the biz.
  9. Sounds right. I do two before every skate, need it or not. However as a goalie I often have dings I need to - at least mostly - fix so I end up doing 5-6 passes far more often than most people should ever need to, so that obviously skews my numbers. It is what it is, and I still get plenty of life out of a ring all things considered. Zero complaints. As one of the first kickstarters I can easily say this is by far the best crowdfunding projects I’ve ever backed (and I back a lot of them) and definitely one of the best investments I’ve ever made in a product in general.
  10. Man, this Christmas couldn't have possibly been any more 2020.
  11. This is my scan. I still can't figure out why retail skates hurt my foot so much. https://my.volumental.com/en/bauer_custom_beta/4a94fb5d-3dd9-49ef-8b8d-507f6e16a4ed/?utm_medium=myvemail I've tried all three of Bauer's lines, Graf, Easton (non-Mako), and Reebok. The only thing that didn't hurt my feet was the Mako. It was significant enough that the first game (I was a beginner in the wrong division) I wore them my teammates asked if I had taken skating lessons. When I switched to goalie I didn't feel like going through that whole nightmare again so after I had some cheap Bauer Reactors just to ensure I actually enjoyed playing goalie, I went straight for custom VH. The difference between those and the Mako was as significant as the Mako to everything I had before then. I was going to try the new CCMs because of the 90 day guarantee, but then I broke my hand so I returned them. I may try again at some point.
  12. I don't mind small ads like what NBA teams have on their jerseys, but man I hope they don't get ridiculous with it like the european leagues.
  13. They're expanding rosters and carrying taxi squads so it's unlikely to be an issue. Also, all teams will be traveling with 3 goaltenders to ensure the Ayres/Foster thing doesn't happen again. Sounds like Quebec and Alberta won't be an issue, Ontario seems like it may get worked out. Manitoba is a bit wishy-washy, and British Columbia is pretty against it. The rumor from the insiders right now is that they may start in bubbles temporarily until the provinces work things out. Also the schedule apparently has teams playing baseball-style schedules, playing in 3-4 game "series". Makes sense as far as limiting travel. Also with them playing 56 games in that many nights, they're basically playing every other night. If they are playing series without travel it should ease the burden quite a bit.
  14. I'm okay with it for one-offs like a tournament, but otherwise I prefer the toned down look.
  15. Sounds like the kind of thing my parents might have. They're big into tech from the previous century.
  16. I had the opportunity to skate this week for the first time since I broke my hand. Um, no thanks. I don't understand how the rinks are even still open. Then again, I'm in a county where strip clubs are "protected by the first amendment", but camping in the middle of a 600K acre desert is a big no-no.
  17. I love when players assume things like this. It's right up there with suggesting black stick tape "hides" the puck.
