  1. Probably pretty high as long as everyone follows the rules.
  2. Ice-Plex Escondido is shut down permanently, and that email I mentioned is from San Diego Ice Arena (Mira Mesa). Carlsbad is where I was playing on a team.
  3. Just got an email from another local rink that they’re in big trouble and will likely be shutting down if they don’t get county assistance. So, that’s 3 of the 5 sheets locally that would be gone.
  4. I’ve been saving up for months for new goalie pads. Due to a combination of coronavirus, local rinks permanently closing, and being kicked off my team I’ve decided it was time to invest in a new hobby, instead of buying hockey gear I’ll never see much use out of. Welcome to the team, Rocket! I’m so pumped, but at the same time definitely going to miss hockey. I’ll still have my gear for now, but if it doesn’t see much use in the next 6 months or so I may try to just sell it all.
  5. Well, it’s pretty simple. Some people do things differently from you.
  6. I don’t know how this is silly. It fits a need. Now I don’t have to rip my tape down the middle.
  7. Probably, but I don't think anything like that is going to keep them from trying.
  8. Haha yeah, saw that this morning. I remember when they posted the April Fools joke and everyone was like "I was hoping this was real". I know I definitely use a 1/2" knob for both player and goalie sticks, so I'd definitely be buying this if I was going to keep playing.
  9. I don’t really see much risk. They’re probably far more likely to contract the disease in their everyday lives than they are in a hub city bubble.
  10. You could tell from the first sentence that his entire post was going to be nonsense.
  11. You definitely wont be able to buy retail skates with no holder. If you want that, you would have to go custom to honor your... custom request.
  12. More than it's worth. You also don't know what that would do to the structural integrity of the rest of the cage.
  13. There is a lot of debate on this and everyone has their opinion, but let me just say that as a goalie a white cage is ABSOLUTELY going to be better for seeing the puck. I have used colored cages, and still do sometimes (my Winterfest mask, for example) but white is definitely easier to see the puck with. Obviously every color occupies the same amount of physical space, but seeing a black object on white ice with a white cage is going to be way easier than seeing it through a black cage. It may matter less for skaters (hence the number of people who will say it doesn't matter) but for me it's a massive difference.
  14. Oh man, I haven't heard that brand name in a LONG time. I was a huge HUGE fan of their original face mask (all plastic - and appears to be the one they still offer for youth players). The "Avision Ahead" model was the second version and it fogged up a ton. Looks like they don't have that one anymore. The Zero Plus is ugly AF but it looks pretty good. A full cage definitely looks less dopey, but who gives a damn these days. I think I still have my original Boulder kicking around somewhere - I wonder if they still make replacement shields for them. Maybe I should put it back on at least for now, regardless.
  15. 72.2 specifically covers that exact situation (refusal to play after a hand pass)
  16. Well, the rink closest to my house just closed permanently and now that I don’t have a spot at the other rink, I now officially have nowhere to play. I guess I’m done playing hockey.
  17. Those haven't changed, yet. They're exactly the same as they've been for quite some time. They stopped doing boot-only orders a while ago.
  18. If they are part of the NHL bubble, yes. The PM already stated that. How come? I haven't seen anything that suggests it won't.
  19. Apparently hit some snags. I would guess part of it is the skyrocketing cases in the US with no end in sight. I assume the plan was always to have them in Canada if possible, for many reasons (a big one is how much cheaper it is for them to do it in Canada) but like you said it seemed unlikely until recently - but that was primarily because of the border closures and quarantine issues. Apparently Vancouver also hit snags and was eliminated as a choice along with Vegas. My guess is they had already chosen EDM and TOR *if possible* and were going to go to Vegas and wherever only if they had to, so they were waiting for the absolute last moment possible. As for NHL players being infected, we have to remember we aren't even in camps yet so at this point there IS no bubble. So cases are kind of irrelevant because nobody is restricted. Now, if they see cases once the bubble is up then THAT will be something to be concerned about, though let's be honest the chances of ZERO infections are pretty slim.
  20. I'm not sure if I should envy or feel sad for those who would notice 50 grams in their skates.
  21. They look fantastic. I'd probably go TF Pro Custom for my goalie skates (assuming they bring out a goalie model...) and TF7 for my regular skates to replace my Makos.
  22. Looks like host cities will be Edmonton and Toronto: https://www.tsn.ca/edmonton-and-toronto-set-to-be-nhl-hub-cities-1.1491108
  23. 72.1 is the best I can find and seems to be a rule that is pretty wide-open for interpretation as there are no specific details.
  24. Yeah I might actually try the retails. The customs were obviously amazing but if I can get something really thermoformable like the Makos, I’d likely be fine.
