  1. Bar night. Get to know each other a little better. You might start to click on the ice if you click off the ice. At worst, it's one season, losing SUCKS, but it's still hockey...
  2. I put a cage on after the 2nd puck to my eye. I went with a titanium cage, super light, it doesn't drag my helmet down at all. Look at the Bauer Re-Akt or CCM's version (can't remember the model name/#), they are both nice.
  3. I don't think this gets fixed until Holland and all of his disciples are gone. It's really, really frustrating to be a Wings fan right now. Like Stewie said, the years of success are taking their toll, but Holland's poor signings and lack of player movement have severely hindered this team. They are more than $3M over the cap (before Franzen goes on LTIR) but have not signed Athanasiou. Holland plans on going into the preseason over the cap. He'll weasel his way out of trouble AGAIN because at least one guy will get hurt and go on LTIR, Holland's favorite salary cap lifeline. And if that doesn't happen, he will have to waive someone to get under the cap, and likely carry a 21-man roster, MAYBE 22. I can accept being at or over the Cap if the team is good, or close to it. But this is a bad team. 3rd lowest regulation win total in the league last year. They only stayed somewhat close to the playoff pack because of their shootout record. Yes, there were a few injuries, but most teams battle that. The goaltending was inconsistent, the defense pretty much abysmal, and the offense was AWOL. Holland puts way too much stock in 3rd- and 4th-liners, and veterans past their prime. Blashill seems generally lost behind the bench at the NHL level... at least behind this bench. He may be a good coach, but it isn't working here. The comfort level is too high for a team that is, at its very best, a bubble team, and on the whole, a near bottom-feeder. Nobody gets let go, nobody gets traded away. Ken Holland-issued contracts are pretty much lifetime contracts, and it's gotten to be unhealthy. Fresh blood is needed in the office, behind the bench, and on the roster.
  4. Bending Branches is still around, they make paddles for canoes and kayaks. I used to love their sticks...
  5. Horrible news, and even worse timing with all the support and momentum Womens' hockey had gotten in the previous weeks.
  6. Understandable. Thanks for the quick reply!
  7. Jason, any plans for custom blades? Specifically tapered... with the overall decline in the 2-piece category, it's impossible to find blades that I like anymore.
  8. Probably is from a training/rookie camp... as far as I know, they don't number their regular practice jerseys.
  9. I'd buy those just for the ICM blades!
  10. A couple guys in my beer league have MIA/Warrior custom gloves already.
  11. It works just fine, as long as you use it properly.
  12. I measured myself, I'm right between a 5.5 and a 6. I have tried both lies (from Black Beauty) and I've had better luck with the 5.5 lie.
  13. It seems like being slightly bowlegged helps skating. Most of the guys I've played with that were the better skaters on the team were bowlegged. I, unfortunately, am not.
  14. To make a standard shaft, just flip it over.
  15. The Legend stuff is BEAUTIFUL. The elbow pads fit great, are light, yet still offer good protection. The shoulders are a little bit thick for my taste (I wear some 1980s Coopers, they're paper thin) but I think they'll soften up with a washing or two as well as some use. The gloves... oh, the gloves! Pigskin, thin leather palm (I think they're supposed to come with a 2nd palm, like the Vapor XXX), split fingers, leather gussets, lace in the cuff, plastic inserts... extremely comfortable right out of the bag, and should be reasonably priced. I have yet to see the pants, but my brother (prenny207, a DR rep) said they're very nice, look like they're from the 1970s, but are quite protective. I'll probably end up wearing the whole series.
